This is clinching :
In clinching, a rivet-like joint is made from the stud and track themselves without any added fastener. In short, the process is that a punch will push the overlapping material into a die. At the bottom of the die is an anvil so the material will be squeezed between the punch and the anvil to form the clinch joint. The process is fast, clean and silent. The strength of a clinched joint is comparable to that of a rivet or screw and is greater than that of a pin. Our clinch joints have successfully passed tests simulating earthquakes, strong winds and fire and are approved for load-bearing structures in all seismic zones, including zones 3 and 4.
The product range goes from ultra-light stitchfolding tools and light handheld clinching tools, to heavy-duty clinching tools and and clinching workheads for line builders and integrators.
TAGGER – Stitchfolding tools
TAGGER creates a staple-like joint from the material members, without any added fasteners. The stitchfolding process is fast, clean and silent.
Light-weight clinching tools
Application areas include appliances, metallic furniture, internal partition walls, HVAC, solar panels etc.
Heavy-duty clinching tools

The Mega line
The Mega line features articulated machines to be used hand-held, pillar or bench mounted or robot-held. The automated opening/closing mechanism allows production rates of the order of 5,000-7,000 clinch points per 8-hour shift or more than 1-1.3 million joints per year.
The Kombi line
The Kombi line offers a selection of fixed and articulated workheads. Here, integrators and line builders find solutions for even the most demanding clinching jobs. Workhead depths from 35 mm, 1 1/2″ to 300 mm, 12″, greater on special request.
