Sheet Metal Clinching
Blending innovation with reliability, TOX PRESSOTECHNIK engineers sheet metal clinching systems for industry partners around the world. Sheet metal clinching is a cold-forming technique that joins two or more metal pieces without the use of fasteners, bolts, rivets or spot welding. Trusted by the manufacturing, automotive, appliance, housing, HVAC and furniture industries, TOX sheet metal clinching systems are an economical solution for your sheet metal fastening needs.
Used for high-strength fastening, sheet metal clinching produces a button-type joint that does not impact the surface finish. Additional advantages of TOX systems include:
- Reliability: TOX guarantees the joint strength values provided by our clinching systems.
- Versatility: TOX clinching systems are commonly used for sheet metal, but can be used for other material types as well.
- Eco-Friendly: TOX sheet metal clinching creates no wasted material, and is a clean, quiet process.
- Budget Friendly: This type of sheet metal joining is more affordable than spot welding and other fastener techniques.
TOX Clinch Procedures
TOX PRESSOTECHNIK offers a patented clinching technique that results in a solid die cavity, but joint shapes can also be customized to your project-specific needs. Clinch procedures include:
Patented and used over one million times, the round joint provides high static and dynamic strength without cutting or corrosion. Round joints create simple, solid tools, with a very long lifespan. (Also available as MICROpoint with 1.5 and 2 mm point diameter.)
Versatile die with a combination of fixed and sliding segments, this method is used for special applications, or in conjunction with the ClinchRivet or with glue within the sheet metal layers for further strength. more
Used an an alternative to the pierce rivet, this simple, cylindrical rivet is cold-formed into the metal during the clinching process. more
Increases dynamic strength by creating a double joint with a diameter of 2mm to 10mm.
Joining system that flattens the joint protrusion when it is aesthetically undesirable or when the protrusion causes interference. more
