Description

TUCK – Spring Steel Dowels

The TUCK is a spring steel dowel, immediately load-bearing for gluing without a clamping aid. It is available in five sizes (Ø 6 mm x 25 mm, Ø 8 mm x 35 mm, Ø 10 mm x 32 mm, Ø 10 mm x 28 mm and Ø 10 mm x 16 mm) and processed like a conventional wooden dowel. The TUCK is self-tightening and no clamps aid is required when assembling the workpiece (cabinet, furniture, interior design, etc.). The spring steel guarantees a permanent tightening by pushing against the borehole wall. The processing can be done with a dowel-boring machine or with a CNC machining center. Due to the elimination of the usual clamping aids, the productivity of the gluing of workpieces (cabinets) can also be drastically increased even in smaller manufacturers. Also in industrial furniture manufacturing, the production time per workpiece can be considerably reduced.
