The eyelets are metal rings that tighten or reinforce punched holes in sheet metal parts. These devices work very well on light and fibrous materials, such as sheet metal, linen, and similar materials. The lack of eyelets in holes in more delicate fabrics makes those holes more prone to tearing, whereas the presence of eyelets lowers the chance of rubbing and subsequent damage. The creation of eyelets involves various raw materials like metal, plastic, or rubber.
Eyelets are ideal for a punched hole through other materials. Reinforcing something or protecting it from the jagged edges of a hole is a perfect application for eyelets. Before the invention of a stapler, the eyelet machine was the most common method for an individual to bind documents.
The diameter of the hole is the most crucial factor to consider. The eyelet has to have a suitable diameter to pass through the hole. But it also needs to have the appropriate flange diameter to give sufficient strength in any application you have in mind. Get in touch with us right away for further information on the customizing.

Eyelets’ Manufacturing Process
DEEP DRAWN STAMPING: This process provides various shapes, like cylindrical, square, shell-like, rectangular, and cup-like. The first step is to move the blank, flat metal sheet across the die for molding. The blankholder helps maintain the position of the blank sheet while forming the desired mold. Then the punch is forcibly inserted into the flat sheet, die-cast, and molded into the required shape.
Various materials are suitable for the stamping process of manufacturing custom eyelets, including titanium, steel, aluminum, nickel, and zinc. It is typical that if the stamping is thicker, the substance is softer. Moreover, the stamped-made eyelets are ideal for various applications, including the electronic industries, in which eyelets are used for computer desk drive shells. Eyelets are produced for motor housing and oil pans for the automobile industry.
