Autofast, LLC was created to produce superior rivet tools that manufacturing facilities could leverage to achieve their rivet fastening goals. Our hallmark product -- the AutoFast rivet fastening system, is a fusion of breakthrough technology and innovation.
The world's first portable, semi-automatic rivet system is the brainchild of James Hopkins who was struck with the idea for the AutoFast automatic rivet gun two decades ago. A racing enthusiast, James had been working with various fastener products to maintain his racing cars. His growing annoyance with the inefficiency of available rivet guns, which had to be hand-fed every single rivet, every single time, led him to create his 'dream' rivet fastening tool. A semi-automatic rivet gun that came pre-loaded with rivets in virtually any rivet size, a mandrel catcher that could hold hundreds of mandrels, most importantly -- a tool that was as durable as it was fast -- and so the AutoFast was born.
Today, the AutoFast is the industry record-holder for fastest rivet application with a time of one rivet per second.

Since purchasing the AutoFast, there's been no more dropped and wasted rivets out on the floor, less clean-up time spent sweeping up rivets and mandrels and zero time separating good rivets out of the trash. Everything goes into one collection sack with an easy-open zipper. This tool has paid for itself by eliminating the dropped rivet waste. Not to mention, the safety improvements from waste on the production plant floor and the more precise rivet installations.
The competitive advantage is clear--no other rivet system competes with our speed, flexibility, safety and reliability.
As an additional safety precaution the nose piece on the AutoFast will not fire, unless properly engaged, further reducing job-related injuries.
