Fast and economical connection
Joining is the simplest and most cost-effective way of connecting two or more metal parts. With the TruTool TF 350 you can produce a form-fitting connecting element with joints that are easy to reproduce from the material with cold forming. Whether the workpieces are coated or uncoated is irrelevant. The TruTool TF 350 joins total material thicknesses of 0.8 mm to max. 4 mm. The result is a long-lasting connection in one operation, without additional connecting elements.
The connection point is secure and resilient and the joining points are resistant to corrosion.
No screws or rivets are used, which saves costs and simplifies handling
The joining quality does not depend on whether surfaces are coated or uncoated.
Simple single stroke activation with consistent strength and connection quality.
Up to three parts can be connected together, even if the sheet thickness varies. For coated sheet metal, mild steel, stainless steel, aluminium or with intermediate layers such as adhesive and plastic mats.

Straight to the point
With displacement joining, the sheets of metal to be joined are placed on top of each other. Then the tool cuts a strip into the sheets in a combined punching and forming operation. The top sheet is joined with the lower one with a form-fitting and corrosion-resistant connection as the materials flow into one another. The connection point solidifies and you get a permanent connection without the need for filler materials or heat.
No connecting elements
The rectangular joining point appears as a shallow raised spot. This means that you have no interference contour, such as with edges for example, which you find with screws and rivets. The simple handling offers the benefit that no connecting elements need to be provided and the machine is therefore quickly ready for use. The TruTool TF 350 can also be adapted to the desired application quickly and easily. Simply choose the relevant tool.
The TruTool TF 350 power fastener offers an impressively compact and slim design, which makes it particularly well-suited to uses where space is limited. The geometry of the tool also has a large throat depth with a minimal interference contour. This produces flawless connections when processing ventilation ducts. Applications on tight corners and small flange widths are also no problem for the TruTool TF 350.
The joining zone is exposed to neither thermal loading nor tension. The protective layer flows with the material during forming. This means that the material properties remain unchanged and free of oxidation, and the surface structure is not damaged. There is no need for preliminary work or reworking. A further benefit is that with clinching you avoid contamination of the material surface. This is perfect for coated and uncoated materials; even sheet metal with a layer of oil is ideally suited to this.
