Studs are metallic rods, either threaded their entire length (continuously threaded) or with a base on one end that is pressed into a housing or chassis, leaving the male thread exposed. Continuously threaded studs are sometimes slotted on one end. Studs are often set into mounting plates to attach motors, brackets or other sub-assemblies where access to the reverse side of the plate is not available.
Typically made from stainless steel, studs can be slotted and soft touch can be added as well. Standard thread sizes range from 4-40 up to 2″-8, and lengths can be varied according to customer requirements.
ASM’s refined manufacturing processes can hold tighter tolerances than the industry standard and allow for the fastest turnaround of parts as needed. Part lengths can be modified to suit any customer requirement. ASM’s quality management system is AS9100D and ISO9001:2015 certified. DFARS documentation is available upon request.
