Default drain pan nipple press

A couple years ago I came upon a machine that would press a 3/4" male pipe thread nipple on to a sheet metal drian pan. The nipple and machine were designed to work together.

I'm looking for a source for both the press and the nipples that go with the press.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Don't know about the machine you are looking for but it sounds expensive but interesting. Would like to see one if you have pics.
Have you ever tried these fittings. We use them extensively on condensate pans etc.

Sorry I can't help either. I take a 3/4" C X MIP adapter and flange the copper end over and sweat it into the pan. I usually cut the hole in the pan first and insert the fittting and then flange it. Then I heat the fitting only and put the solder to it. good luck on finding your machine. Perhaps a custom tool company could build it for you.
