Clinching, Joining & Punching Tongs

Our experience has shown that the application and the desired handling specify, whether a hand tongs or a unit from our modular kit system offers the right solution.

Our hand tongs are designed as a compact unit and optimized for our sheet metal joining technology or punching.

When using a robots in automated production, you need tongs that fit well into the manufacturing process. We are able to provide appropriate managed units customized on the standardization of the individual elements.


Clinching, Joining and Punching have a great impact in the automotive industry, including these applications: suspension, engine and transmission, motor and battery, and automotive body.

The tongs frame has a console which is mounted to the robot arm (robotic tongs) or a station in the line (machine mount tongs). Tooling, drive, controls and monitoring are defined on your needs.

The TOX®-Handheld Tongs have been designed with the operator in mind. They are robust, durable and provide an excellent handling.

When the application requires clamping, positioning, holding, crimping, shearing, cutting, stamping, marking, bending, folding or welding, then one needs a force that is linear, with precise repeatibility.

Procedure for selecting a TOX®-Tongs for your application:

  1. For Clinching operation send us samples of your material and we will prepare a TOX®-Test Report for you. This report contains all the necessary data and guarantees for the tested TOX®-Joint.
  2. Determine pressing forces.
  3. Check parts and fixtures for proper clearance.
  4. Determine stroke.
  5. Select type of drive.
  6. Decide whether a process monitoring system is required.
  7. Discuss your press unit pre-selection with us.
