Norlok clinching and fastening machines -  sheet metal clinchers

ASTRACLINCH Alligator Line

Norlok Spot Clinch machine attexor alligator line

Extremely light, hand-held, articulated SPOT CLINCH® machines from ASTRACLINCH Tools, workhead weight 7-8 lbs (3.2-3.6 kg), cycle time 0.6-1.0 seconds, capacity 2x16 ga (0.120”) total mild steel. Applications include stud-to-track joining in both load-bearing structures and for partition walls, and also in the HVAC sector, for enclosures, appliances and general idustrial use.

Only ASTRACLINCH, Inc. holds ICBO/ICC building code approval.
To our knowledge, no other clinching equipment supplier has obtained ICBO/ICC building code approval for its clinched joints in structural members of cold-formed profiles (see ER-5439). This code approval is valid in all seismic zones, including zones 3 & 4, and in areas of high wind loads.

Advantages of the Norlok ASTRACLINCH :
• low investment (for lower production costs)
• rigid punches & robust dies give low tool consumption & minimal operating costs
• reversible punches & dies
• manual jaw closing for maximum safety
• no separate fasteners to buy, sort or feed
• no thermal stress around the joined area
• highly consistent joint
• rapid, non-destructive testing of the joint
• low machine weight
• joining more than two layers
• pre-painted or galvanized sheet materials
