Swiss Firm Of Eckold AG Offers Free Literature On 'Press-Joining'

Eckold AG of Trimmis, Switzerland, is offering free literature on"press-joining," an advanced method of connecting metal sheets, profile sections and components.

These can be of either the same or different materials and up to a maximum combined thickness of 5 mm (0.200 inches).

Press-joining requires no heat and no auxiliary materials. Echold says you can forget about rivets, screws, nuts and bolts when connecting light-gaged metal parts, thus saving time and money while also avoiding fumes, surface damage and distortion of the material. All it needs is a hydraulic unit to drive one of the mobile tools which have various throat depths to enable you to press-join air duct parts or other metal components on construction sites or in the shop.

Eckold can also supply tools and stationary machines for multiple joints in a single work cycle.

Press-joining is said to be fast, simple, reliable and easy to inspect.
