Wilson Tool's Zip-Tech® lance and form tool fabricates snaps to join metal parts together without time-consuming and labour intensive welding and grinding operations, spot-welding or other fastening methods.
Via formed snaps, the metal sheets are connected so tightly, they virtually cannot be pulled apart. Conventional methods of welding and grinding operations and spot-welding metals together have historically prevented some dissimilar or coated metals from being joined together.
In addition, welding and spot-welding most coated metals releases toxic gases from the coating and typically corrodes the rust-resistance properties of the metals, prompting the need for the extra steps to restore the rust resistance.
- Zip-Tech® is available in any style of tooling
- The tool works on stainless, mild steel and aluminium
- Different types of materials of the same thickness can be joined together
