And both are available from us!

CLINCHING TECHNIQUES FOR YOUR INDUSTRY

 

For decades, leading automotive manufacturers have been relying on ECKOLD solutions. With ECKOLD clinching, you can make significant cost savings in car body production. Comparisons with other joining methods revealed that clinched joints are particularly durable – even under adverse ambient conditions. For the joining of mixed materials and/or materials of different thickness, clinching can often be performed with a single tool kit. ECKOLD clinching is also suitable for hybrid joining, i.e. clinching in combination with gluing. Thanks to the compact design of our clinching machines and the broad range of tools on offer, ECKOLD clinching is a highly versatile technique. Computer-aided process monitoring ensures continuous online supervision and documentation of the clinching processes, thus guaranteeing reproducibility.
