Fastening Technology | Zip-Tech®

Supplier: Sheetmetal Tooling Tech

Wilson Tool's Zip-Tech® Fastening Technology addresses the fabricating industry's need to eliminate expensive fastening methods in some applications.

Price Guide: POA

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
