Norlok | Clinching/Fastening Systems | Norlok Power line

Norlok clinching and fastening machines -  sheet metal clinchers

Power Line

Norlok power clinching line

In two-stroke clinching, the material to be joined is first deformed plastically inside a die. In a second phase, the joint is created through a squeezing between the punch and anvil outside of the die. The result is a high quality joint in terms of shape, strength and repeatability.

What's Included in this Norlok Power line :
A complete SPOT CLINCH® Power Line unit consists of a compact workhead connected through a hydraulic hose to an air-over-oil pressure intensifier (booster) with automatic cycle control, ready for connection to the
factory compressed air net. An air preparation unit with pressure regulator, filter and water trap, a variety of tool kits, balancer and rotator are available as options.

Advantages of the Norlok Power Line :

• one tool set for the entire thickness range
• sturdy, rigid punches and dies give low tool consumption and minimal operating costs
• no separate fasteners to buy, sort or feed
• no thermal stress around the jointed area
• very good consistency of the joint
• rapid, non-destructive testing of the joint
• low machine weight
• ideal for large workpieces
• ideal for joining more than two layers
• fastens pre-painted or galvanized material
• fastens stainless austenitic steel
• fastens materials with foils or adhesive intermediate layers
• for narrow flanges and clinching close to walls
