Self-clinching Nuts Ideally Suit Restrictive Design Envelopes

PEM Type SMPS self-clinching nuts have introduced ideal fasteners for ultra-thin metal sheet applications where design envelopes may be restrictive and space for attachment hardware may be limited. Installing permanently in steel or aluminum metal sheets as thin as .025” / 0.64mm, their minimal “edge of sheet” to “center of fastener” distance (.145” / 3.7mm) enables close-to-edge mounting on a panel and a small diameter (.220” / 5.6mm) and low height (0.065” / 1.4mm) combine for an overall low-profile fastener solution.

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.
