Captive panel screw integrated in spring-loaded assembly minimises parts count, enables easy access
Mechanical Fasteners : 29 July, 2013
PEM Types PF50 and PF60 self-clinching captive panel screws keep hardware parts count to a minimum by integrating a captive screw in a spring-loaded assembly to promote easy and efficient handling and installation. Their permanent mounting in thin metal assemblies additionally eliminates any risks associated with loose hardware that could fall out, get lost, or misplaced and potentially cause damage to internal components.
Spinning clinch bolts enable captivated screw to spin freely for quick attachment
Mechanical Fasteners : 03 June, 2013
PEM spinning clinch bolts for use in thin metal sheets are one-piece captive designs, whose controlled clinching action during installation permanently captivates the screw while allowing it to spin freely in the sheet. This allows for quick attachment of mating hardware and reduced need for loose fasteners (such as screws and retaining clips or washers). These fasteners can serve as cost-effective alternatives to multi-component fastener assemblies.

Self-clinching flush nuts provide load-bearing threads for mating hardware
Mechanical Fasteners : 20 May, 2013
Pemsert self-clinching flush nuts are designed for attachment applications where thin metal sheets can benefit from the introduction of strong load-bearing threads without creating any protrusions on either side. Upon their permanent installation in aluminium or steel sheets as thin as 1.5mm, both the top and bottom of the sheet remain flush, with only a single mating screw required for final component attachment.
Unthreaded fastener with coiled locking wedge - the more vibration, the tighter the fitting
Mechanical Fasteners : 07 May, 2013
Gala Tent, a company that transformed the event industry by making it more affordable to buy than to hire marquees and gazebos, has developed the innovative Spirotite unthreaded fastener that is set to revolutionise the way fasteners are used in industry.
Adjustable concealed hinge comes apart in the hands
Mechanical Fasteners : 06 May, 2013
These hinges separate into two pieces to make installation easy and accurate, so one man can even install a large door without drama. And with the smaller hinges where many may be used in a development, a simple snap, click or screw together assembly can save a great deal of time.
Self-clinching flush-head studs less costly to install than weld studs
Mechanical Fasteners : 19 April, 2013
PEM type FHP self-clinching flush-head studs install permanently into thin stainless steel sheets to provide attachment in applications requiring corrosion resistance. They will install more easily and at less cost than weld studs and additionally can contribute to thinner and lighter designs for component assemblies in industries including medical, food service and marine.
