Abstract

When a staple jam has occurred or when staples are freshly loaded, some uncertainty exists that the stapler will correctly resume stapling. To verify that the proper procedures have been performed and that the correct conditions exist within the stapler, a manual requested firing (stapling actions) control has been implemented, using an extra set of contacts on the "Power On1* switch. Pushing this switch for two seconds (deliberately chosen to avoid the "toy syndrome" of unnecessary actuations) will cause the stapler to swing into position and to fire (stapler closure) twice; once for performing the next staple, and one for actual staple clinching.
