Better than a weld stud

PEM International says its new self clinching stud is easier to install than weld studs and reduces the cost of installation. The HFE has been designed to provide a high strength application in aluminium or steel sheet down to as thin as 1mm.

PEM has increased the size of the ribbed stud head, so that it projects above the sheet and distributes the axial tightening force over a wider area, which improves pull-through resistance.
