PEM® Fasteners

KEY ADVANTAGES OF SELF-CLINCHING FASTENERS

  • Provide strong threads or attachment in metal as thin as 0.20 mm / .008″.
  • May be installed using any parallel acting squeezing force.
  • Provide high pushout and torque-out resistance.
  • Do not require special hole preparation, such as chamfering and deburring.
  • Reverse side of metal sheet remains flush – no swaged rim protrusion.
  • No retapping necessary after application.
  • Low installed costs.
  • Can be installed using automated equipment for high volume applications.

DESIGN FOR ASSEMBLY

Self-clinching fasteners help designers meet DFA parameters which include:

  • Fewer parts to handle. Hardware such as washers, lock washers and loose nuts are no longer required in final assembly.
  • Fewer assembly steps. Since the task of hardware installation is done during fabrication, the number of steps required for final assembly time is reduced.
  • Less total assembly time. Fewer parts and less steps mean shorter assembly time
