PEM® brand fasteners utilize self-clinching, broaching, flaring, surface mount, or weld technology to provide strong, reusable, and permanent threads and mounting points in thin sheet metal, P.C. board materials, and other ductile or non-ductile thin material.
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.
