To determine the machine’s Product Tree, refer to the silver tag on the right side of the machine, near the red power switch.

 

The new N-clinch tooling has been redesigned to increase its strength and wear resistance. This new tooling is easily identified by its black color as opposed to the gold color of the current tooling.

 

According to our records you have purchased at least one Radial 8 which can benefit from this new tooling.  We are informing you of this so that you may consider changing over to this new tooling to take advantage of the enhancements if you have not already done so.  We are also informing you that we will cease to offer the current gold color tooling by October 2000.

 

The new black tooling pieces are not interchangeable with the previous gold tooling.  The clinch tooling must be changed as a full set, using one of the retrofit kits in the table below.  Replacement parts ordered after the retrofit kit is installed may be ordered individually. The parts we have changed only affect the normal wear tooling pieces that you normally change during preventive maintenance cycles.  We recommend that you allow your current gold color tooling to reach the end of its life and then replace it with the enhanced kit.

 

Please refer to the table below to order the proper part numbers.

New High Pivot N-Clinch

If you own a Radial 8 with a Product Tree number other than those listed above, or any of our Radial 5 machines, you may also take advantage of this new enhanced clinch tooling by ordering a new style high pivot N clinch.  The high pivot N clinch automatically comes with this new tooling.  The high pivot N clinches offer greater cutting force than the former low pivot clinches.  You will need the high pivot N clinch in order to take advantage of this new tooling.

 

If you chose not to purchase a high pivot N clinch, the tooling that accommodates the low pivot clinches will still be available.

 

Since all Universal Instruments Corp. radial machines use the same clinch mounting system, you may simply order the new style high pivot N clinch to replace your low pivot type.  It’s a “drop-in” replacement.
