Taloc has introduced the new model C71 fastening machine with a 15-inch horn. The modular build design uses fewer parts, and the permanently centered piston-type ram reduces friction. A patented floating punch assembly is easier to adjust for perfectly concentric tooling, said company officials. Detach guards cover all moving parts and the solid-state frame cuts from 4-inch-thick plate. Also available from Taloc is the model C72 with 30-inch horn
