It was not until around 1600 that the first machine for making nails appeared, the 'Oliver' - a kind of work-bench, equipped with a pair of treadle operated hammers - provided a mechanism for beating the metal into various shapes but the nails were still made one at a time. Eventually, in the USA, towards the late 1700's and early 1800's, a nail machine was devised which helped to automate the process.
Soon nail making really took off, and this is where Vulcania took captive of the nail market. Vulcania reinforcing continuously produces nails in large numbers, sizes and various other shapes.
