Basic Product Overview
A Low Cost Assembly Solution
BTM's purpose built die sets for clinching sheet metal are an ideal way to inexpensively assemble your part by utilizing an existing stamping press. BTM has the design and build capability to offer a variety of solutions including large & complex die sets which perform multiple operations simultaneously- such as combining clinch joints with hole piercing or bending of the part. Fixed and/or dynamic gauging is also utilized to meet the GD&T feature tolerances required to make your parts less expensive and easier to assemble.
