I want to produce jump rings, can you send me a quote for the machine?

By | faq

We do have several solution to produce jump rings.
The simplest solution is

MFX
http://tekaonline.com/it/portfolio/mfx-jump-rings-making-machine/

This machine is fast and reliable on the condition that wire temper is soft and wire size thin.
The wire is wrapped onto the pin and cut afterward by a little blade which is installed on the pin itself, therefore the proportion between the pin and the wire diameter has to be proper…the pin diameter must be at least two times bigger than wire diameter.
According to the technology involved, obtaining a flush cut is not possible by this machine.
In fact the cut is always V shaped…see reference picture on the web link above.

NK20

or

Ezlink
http://tekaonline.com/en/portfolio/easylink/

The main difference between the 2 machines is that Ezlink was born to allow the assembling operation (even if it could work in continuous way too without stop in order to produce loose links).
While the NK20 is capable to produce different parts having different shapes (changing the tooling) but it doesn’t support the assembling.
Both the machines are suitable for flush cut.

Can you supply stainless steel springs for custom clasps?

By | faq

Yes, we can supply customized springs and for this purpose we ask you to send us few physical samples of the locks in order to be able to test the springs once the first test is completed.
Often the springs are items that need to be made with high precision and for that reason a test on a physical sample is essential.

Copyright and exclusive models.

By | faq

As regards models commissioned on your request, you may be required to sign a document in which you raise TEKA from any liability related to copyright / patent infringement or violation of intellectual rights.
We are a service company with a very varied clientele coming from different geographical areas of the world, we often work on your specifications and it is therefore impossible for us to be able to verify whether what we are asked to do violates any rule.
In fact, you are required to take full responsibility for the legitimacy of the models that you ask us to provide machinery for.

Customization of mold size blocks

By | faq

We try to use standardized die block holders and normally we CANNOT change the external dimensions of the block.
In special cases we can use die block holders provided by the customer, but it is a special condition that requires a prior agreement.

Can I use your molds on my press?

By | faq

Our molds are built with compatible standards, in most cases it is sufficient to mount the right upper drive pin on the mold.
A small series of interchangeable attachments of different sizes is normally supplied together with the mold.
However, we invite you to share technical informations about your presses.

Can you send me a sample of the product?

By | faq

We can send a sample of the product made with your machine or your mold before shipment, for your final OK (shipment at your charge)
Another thing concerns samples of existing items, in fact we are not happy to send our samples for various reasons:
– We do not manufacture samples but machines and molds and consequently their availability is limited and we risk being left without any of them.
– We always try to make samples but it takes time and they are usually never enough.
– Sending samples has a cost that we do not want to bear, we are a small company with a large number of customers and even admitted and not allowed to have enough samples to ship, shipments would cost too much.
– So even if we can send you samples, you must be prepared to pay for the shipping costs.

By which shipping method will I receive my order?
