Clinching is, due to its characteristics, a joining method with several advantages. The high joining forces, which require heavy process equipment are a major disadvantage. The Fraunhofer Institute has developed clinching methods which reduce the joining forces considerably to make clinching applicable for further developments and new application areas.
