Rethinking the Nail Gun

Porter Cable, later acquired by Black & Decker, put D2M to the challenge of developing alternate technology for nail guns that would differentiate their products.

Reduced Size

D2M’s innovation came in the development of a mechanism that increased combustion efficiency while minimizing piston length. This allowed the mechanism to package into a smaller volume, ultimately resulting in greater portability for the user.


Increased Efficiency

The D2M design team entirely redesigned the nail gun, from the feeding mechanism to the flush of the combustion chamber, and to the fuel delivery system. Additionally, our engineers worked to improve the burn characteristics of a firing event over an experimental testing process that utilized combustion instrumentation.
