The Strip-LOK™ Sheet Metal Joiner is a portable strip-joining machine driven by compressed air. Unlike traditional coil steel joiners the main use for Strip-LOK™ joiners is repairing strip tear off situations on modern steel strip processing lines such as continuous galvanizing and paint coil coating lines. Two models are available to suit most production facilities. Designed for use with aluminum or steel substrates, this is the best advance in economical efficient and effective strip joining equipment in decades. Already used by most steel manufactures worldwide, the Strip-LOK™ Sheet Metal Joiner is highly appreciated and valued.
Repeatable, strong connections can be achieved with a total sheet thickness up to 1.8mm.
Operation is very clean and quiet as the Strip-LOK™ Joiner does not require any consumables other than the
two pieces of strip to be joined and no blank is produced.
The strength of each join depends upon the gauge and properties of the metal being connected. As a general rule, 20
punches on each side of .4mm soft iron sheets provide a tensile force of approximately 25kN. If joining two sheets of
different thick nesses, always place the thicker material on the underside.
Note: A light application of lubricant on the sheets being joined or on the punch will facilitate operation when
joining thick sheets near the joiners upper capacity.
The joint is achieved by mechanically punching a square hole through the sheets to be joined and folding the
flared strip back onto itself. Apart from requiring an external compressed air source the Strip-LOK™ Joiner is
fully self contained. The Strip-LOK™ Joiner is activated as soon as the trigger is pressed and an automatic cycle
of punching and flattening the two layers of metal strip will then commence. The joining cycle will immediately
stop as soon as the trigger is released.
Four models available; Standard, Standard Low Pressure, Long Reach & Long Reach Low Pressure.
