Subject: A mechanism process description of a stapler

Figure 1 Stapler

Introduction

A stapler is a portable "device that binds together sheets of paper by driving a thin metal staple through the sheets and folding over the ends to secure the paper".( Wikipedia) Most office staplers are 30 cm long, 9 cm wide, and 18 cm tall. The stapler is made of rubber, plastic, and metal. The main components of an office stapler include the base, the anvil, the magazine, the metal head, the case, the hanger, and the springs.
