Self Clinching Threaded Flush Head Studs specifications:
• Installed quickly and easily by squeezing into place
• Creates flush-head assembly
• Stud locked into place
• The minimum sheet thickness of 0.040" /1.00 mm
self-clinching studs are installed by placing them in properly sized holes in the sheets and squeezing into place with any standard press. The squeezing action embeds the head of the stud into the sheet. The metal displaced by the head flows smoothly and evenly around the ribs and into the annular groove – creating a flush head assembly and securely locking the stud into the sheet with high torque-out and pushout resistances.
