1.FILN Button Switch Example:

1.1 Product Introduction:

Welcome to our latest product introduction, the 22mm Gravity push button switches, a metal push button switch  designed specifically for nail guns shooting. This button, a robust metal push button switch, is crafted from high-quality stainless steel 304, featuring two connection legs/wires, capable of handling up to 250V and 5A of current. Its compact design, measuring only 22mm in diameter without a light, makes it suitable for various nail guns shooting environments. Our clients from the USA have requested custom push button switches for nail guns, with high demands for product quality and stability. We are committed to providing them with the highest quality push button switches and services.

1.2 Customization Needs:

Through communication with our client, we discovered that the push button switches provided by their previous supplier could not withstand the impact force of nail guns shots, leading to damage and disintegration of the nail guns head after a few uses. This significantly impacted the quality and user experience of the nail guns. Consequently, the client reached out to several Chinese button companies, including FILN, hoping for a better metal push button switch solution.

1.3 Innovative Response Measures:

Based on the situation, we recommended a more stable 22MM stainless steel metal push button switch structure and provided clear product effect pictures. Considering the traditional push button switches’ susceptibility to wear and tear in nail guns shooting environments, we introduced innovative measures, adding a spring structure to counteract the impact force. Furthermore, we customized the head and internal structure of the metal push button switch to withstand the impact force of nail guns gravity shooting, thereby enhancing the product’s durability and reliability. Compared to push button switches provided by previous suppliers, our product offers better resistance to nail guns shooting, avoiding damage due to impact.
