BTM ClinchClamp Press Unit

Delivers balanced force from an Air-Over-Oil Cylinder & features a rotary motion for easy loading and unloading of parts.

A Cost-Effective Sheet Metal Clinching Solution!

The BTM ClinchClamp's Air-Over-Oil cylinder provides economical, balanced, and quiet force for applying clinch joints. The balanced force improves tool life.


The ClinchClamp is also ideal for Geo-Set applications as it features qualified surfaces for mounting part locating pins and pre-clamping components. This allows parts to be properly located to each other while they are economically clinched in place to establish correct geometric orientation.
