Profil has launched the SZB stud, a fast and secure anchor post for plastic or metal clips used to secure trim, insulation, hydraulic-pipework or electrical-wiring runs to sheet-metal components.

Suitable for automotive-industry, electrical-equipment or domestic-appliance use, the fastener features an asymmetric-buttress-style thread that provides simple push-on, screw-off location for the secondary fasteners.

With a 5mm core diameter and installed height of 15mm, the anchor stud is dimensionally equivalent to standard welded fasteners.

It can be inserted automatically in pressed components as part of their production process at rates of more than 100 fasteners a minute.

The SZB stud can be installed in low-volume and prototyping applications using a C-frame press.

SZB studs will self pierce up to 1.5mm DC03/DC04-grade steel and can be mounted in pre-pierced materials up to 3.0mm thick.

The anchors are equally suitable for use with coated or uncoated materials, including high-tensile, stainless and sandwich steels, aluminium sections and magnesium castings.

They also provide assured clip orientation and location, as well as an absolute positional accuracy of 0.2mm.
