Self-clinching nuts for ultra-thin metal sheets suit restrictive design envelopes

Penn Engineering : 09 September, 2013  (New Product)
PEM type SMPS self-clinching nuts are fasteners for ultra-thin metal sheet applications where design envelopes may be restrictive and space for attachment hardware may be limited.
Self-clinching nuts for ultra-thin metal sheets suit restrictive design envelopes
Installing permanently in steel or aluminium metal sheets as thin as 0.64mm, their minimal “edge of sheet” to “center of fastener” distance of 3.7mm enables close-to-edge mounting on a panel and a small diameter (5.6mm) and low height (1.4mm).
 
These self-clinching nuts provide strong, durable, and reusable metal threads to accommodate a mating screw, which completes the assembly and eliminates any need for additional attachment hardware. A serrated clinching ring prevents the fastener from rotating after installation. In service these nuts ultimately will not loosen, fall out, or otherwise adversely affect end-product integrity or performance.
 
PEM Type SMPS nuts are made from 300 Series stainless steel imparting high corrosion resistance and can be supplied in unified or metric thread sizes #2-56 through #6-32 and M2.5 through M3.5.
 
When hardware must be installed prior to painting or similar operations, a PEM Blu-Coat thread mask can be applied in advance. Upon application of torque, threads of the mating hardware during assembly will remove the paint, electro-deposited automotive undercoatings, or weld splatter.
