Captive Studs

Self-Clinching studs are installed by placing them in properly pre-cut holes in sheets and applying enough force for metal to cold flow into an undercut.

 

This allows the nut to be integrated into the sheet with a strong bond, but installs flush on the underside of the panel. The serrated ring prevents the nut from rotating and have excellent torque and push out characteristics.

Self-Clinching, High Torque

HCH high-torque studs offer advantages over weld studs and other fasteners. The heavy head configuration provides greater torque-out and improved pull-through resistance. Phospher Bronze studs provide excellent electrical conductivity and mechanical attachment in copper. The head of the stud will remain above the surface when properly installed.

Self-Clinching, Wide Head

HCW Wide-Head studs offer advantages over weld studs and other fasteners. The wide head configuration provides strong load bearing threads in materials as thin as .040 in. (1mm).

Part Number:

HCW

Cross Reference:

HFE

Self-Clinching, Thin Sheet

TCH non-flush studs are manufactured for use in sheets as thin as .020 inches (.5 mm) thick. The pushout and torque-out values are excellent for most applications. The head of the stud will project above the panel surface when installed properly.

Self-Clinching Concealed Head

CFA & CFC concealed-head studs allow permanent mounting in thin metal sheets, using a hollow punch and solid anvil. The stud head is pressed permanently into a blind milled hole, with no marring of the exterior surface.

Part Number:

CFA/CFC

Cross Reference:

CHA, CFHA/CHC, CFHC

Reel Mounted Spacers & Nuts

CRM Reel Mount nuts and spacers provide a low-installed-cost solution for surface mount hardware. The fasteners are fed from the recyclable reel using “pick and place” equipment and oriented prior to the wave soldering operation.
