Optimally mobile clinching tools 

In order to meet the requirement of optimum mobility, ClinchPartner, Inc. has developed a family of clinching power tools, notably the ClinchMaster MX4 product line.

ClinchMaster MX4 can be used cordless, using powerful Li-Ion batteries, giving the operator total and unrestricted mobility.

ClinchMaster MX4 can also operate with a Power Supply unit, slotted into the battery socket and connected to the mains through a power cord. Both 110 V and 230 V versions are available.
 
Prime target applications include internal partition and curtain walls, suspended ceilings. modular structures of various kinds, solar panel racks, HVAC, roof jobs, installation tasks and generally speaking for joining sheets and profiles on-site or off-site.

ClinchMaster MX4

ClinchMaster MX4 is a high-performance, yet low weight cordless clincher. The core of the unit is an advanced electro-hydraulic drive featuring 14.4 V Li-Ion technology, supplying a clinching force around 60 kN.

The weight of the drive is a mere 5.3 lbs, 2.4 kg, including a 1.65 Ah battery. A rapid charger, 110 V or 230 V will load the battery fully in one hour.
Additional batteries 3.2 Ah available.

As the unit will have capacity for making 200-350 clinch joints on a battery load, it will be possible to work more or less uninterrupted by swapping between one battery on the charger and one on the tool.

For more systematic in-factory use, the unit can be equipped with an optional Power Supply for 110 V and 230 V, slotting into the battery socket and connected to the mains.

ClinchMaster features optimum cycle control with automatic return after finished clinching cycle, but allows manual override at any point in time.

A variety of clinching tongs including punch-and-die sets adapted to the thickness of the material to be clinched is available. 

ClinchMaster MX4 comes in a sturdy metallic case with space for the drive unit, up to four additional tongs, charger, additional battery.

The tongs as well as the punch-and-die sets are patented or patents pending.

Specifications approximate and subject to change without prior notice.

Special tongs are available for thicker material

Tongs are closed at rest for operator safety and open manually to allow straddling of flanges and return lips.

All tongs have a weight of around 2.5lbs, 1.15 kg and they pivot around the drive unit axis by +/- 180 degrees for user convenience.

Changing the clinching tong is a simple snap-out, snap-in process, taking less than 5 seconds.
 
The clinching cycle takes about 2.5 seconds.
