BTM Clinching Solutions

High value clinch joining technology for sheet metal assembly.

Are you still Welding or Riveting? SAVE MONEY - Join your parts with a Punch and Die!

BTM Tog-L-Loc® and related clinching tools join sheet metal without the expense of welding or purchased fasteners by simply joining the part’s own material! Assembly cost is significantly reduced by drawing and forming the part material into an interlock. Join galvanized, pre-painted, or even dissimilar metal combinations using an environmentally friendly process that does not produce sparks, harmful fumes or damaging heat!
