Commercial vehicles


Products for the commercial vehicle industry by TOX Pressotechnik

Flexible joining in the commercial vehicle industry

International trade is growing, consumer habits are changing, urbanization is progressing – these are just some of the drivers for the growing demand for trucks, coaches and trailers. The challenge for you as commercial vehicle manufacturer compared to car manufacturing: the degree of automation is lower, the range of types bigger. This requires flexible work processes, simple retooling and fast process configuration.

We use clinching and punch rivet technologies to optimize your assembly processes and support you in significantly reducing the weight of the commercial vehicles. Describe your requirement to us, we assist you with joining technologies, drive and press systems as well as software for seamless process monitoring – for an efficient, reliable and sustainable production.

Gewicht reduzieren und CO2-neutral produzieren

A more sustainable mobility requires lighter commercial vehicles with a CO2 footprint as low as possible. This works with the cold joining processes from TOX®, which perform a lot better compared to the often used welding. Why? Find out about it in our Comparison of welding versus clinching .
