Eckold MCD 30/50 AH Portable Clinching Unit

Eckold MCD 30/50 AH portable clinching unit is an innovative, proven tool for the joining of sheet metal and profiles. Work pieces are permanently joined by cold forming – doing away with fixtures and auxiliary parts. The primary advantage of clinching is the fact that a positive joint can be formed directly from the sheet metal material. The technique is also suitable for the joining of work pieces of different materials and thicknesses.
