Hi All

Glad to be part of this forum, been working in the metal sheet industry for 18 months now.

We are trying to source an air powered tool that will punch lock 0.3mm GI sheets as seen in the pictures, so far no luck, I have looked everywhere yet seems like am not researching the right tool name, hope someone can help in this regard.

Thanks

Hi Mohammed,
It's hard to tell what you are working on? HVAC (heating,ventilation, air conditioning) I see insulation. That may help narrow the scope of your search. Welcome the Forums! tt

Hi oldgoaly

You are correct, these are pocket type filters, held in place using formed GI metal sheets, we currently use staplers to secure these various parts together, yet looking for other convenient solutions.

Hi Mohammed,

Welcome to MM

How about using the pliers that are used for locking steel "skeleton"/frames for drywalls?

Stud punch/crimper closest thing I can think of.

Hi Folks

Thanks for your excellent help.

I just contacted Norlock and Malco.

Norlock seems to be spot on.

Anders, we do this all day long so I think an air powered solution is best suited for this application. thanks for your help.
