The self-clinching feature offers fast and simple assembly. The fasteners are squeezed into prepared holes using any standard press. The sheet remains flush on one side, and the fastener is permanently locked in place.
RSM® brand fasteners utilize self-clinching, broaching, flaring, surface mount, or weld technology to provide strong, reusable, and permanent threads and mounting points in thin sheetmetal, P.C. board materials, and other ductile or non-ductile thin material.
RSM Clinching Fasteners
These standoffs, which use the proven self-clinching design, install with a squeeze in properly sized round holes - and become permanently mounted in the thin sheet. When blind-threaded types are used, outer sheet surfaces are not only flush, but closed as well.
RSM® 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 flushhead assembly and securely locking the stud into the sheet with high torque-out and pushout resistances.
