ECKOLD PORTABLE CLINCHING PLIERS (CLINCH_eckold) are pneumatically driven and have integrated adjustable stroke limitation for the application of individual clinching elements on various metal sheet combinations. The key features of this portable ECKOLD product are its lightweight design, large throat, and 360° swivelling suspension mechanism. Thanks to the large throat and the excellent reproduction accuracy of the pre-set, yet adjustable stroke, the pliers are particularly suitable for joining tasks in the HVAC sector. The clinching method allows for the connection of two or more overlapping pieces of sheet metal by means of local cold forming.
Other advantages of the device include the cheap tools, the sturdy overall design and low maintenance costs. Tools for this machine (punches and dies) vary, depending on the actual clinching task, and must be ordered in conjunction with the machine.
