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 material connection with joints that are easy to reproduce using cold forming. Whether the workpieces are coated or uncoated is irrelevant. The TruTool TF 350 joins overall 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, aluminum, or with intermediate layers such as adhesive and plastic mats.

Straight to the point
With the clinching process, 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 process. A form-fitting and corrosion-resistant connection joins the top and lower sheets as the materials flow into one another. The connection point solidifies resulting in a permanent connection without additional tools or heat.
The rectangular joining point appears as a shallow raised spot. This means that you have no interference contour, such as in the case of edges that you find with screws and rivets. The simple handling means no fasteners are required and the machine is 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. Application on tight corners and small flange widths is also no problem for the TruTool TF 350.
The joining zone is not exposed to thermal load or tension. The protective layer flows with the material during forming. This means that the material properties are unchanged, remain free of oxidation, and the surface structure is not damaged. There is no need for preliminary work or rework. An additional benefit is that clinching avoids material surface contamination. This is perfect for coated and uncoated materials; even sheet metal with a layer of oil is ideally suited to this.
