The "Apprentice" Surelok-Image

With it's safe operation and innovative design the "Apprentice" by Norlok will introduce students to the modern technology of metal fastening by clinching. Due to it's reliability, low environmental impact and cost effectiveness, Clinching is the new and preferred method of fastening sheet metal in the 14 - 32 gauge range within many manufacturing and sheet metal industries.
