BTM Battery Operated Hand Held Clinching Units

Rechargeable battery powered units designed for mobility and limited-use situations when a power supply is not readily available.

No power source? No problem!

BTM's battery clinch units are light-weight units designed to be both mobile and compact. These units operate on a rechargeable battery making them ideal for use on construction sites, or anywhere a power supply is not readily available.

These units are designed for limited use. If you require a unit for small run production or prototyping, please view one of our pneumatically operated, air/oil booster powered, or hydraulic pump powered options.
