BTM’s Lance-N-Loc® Joining System produces clean, strong and consistent joints in most coated or uncoated metals.
The BTM Lance-N-Loc® rectangular joint can, in addition to connecting two layers, also be used to connect several layers of sheet metal. The layers of material are partly cut locally and then interlocked with each other. The rectangular point is also suitable for use with non-metallic partners such as glass fibre fabrics and plastics, while stainless steel sheets/layers such as austenitic stainless steels can also be securely connected with the Lance-N-Loc®.
Because the metal is sheared, a secure electrical connection is established in coated metal sheets. Especially in white goods, the Lance-N-Loc® is therefore also referred to as the “grounding joint”. In addition, the rectangular joint offers a high degree of anti-rotate protection, even where only one clinch joint can be set due to space restrictions.
