Blind Self-Clinching Press Nut Application Notes
- The self-clinching blind press nut is an economical alternative to nut and screw-type hardware. The self-clinching blind press nut requires no seals and eliminates the need for cumbersome assembly processes.
- Insertion into holes in sheet metal is accomplished via application of a steady squeezing force. This squeezing process results in the cold-flow of the sheet metal, which is displaced by the nut’s knurl. When properly inserted, the knurl prevents torque-out during the tightening of the mated part.
- These self-clinching blind press nuts are identical to industry standards in all respects and are suitable for use in automated assembly processes.
During the early stages of design of your product, it is important to give adequate consideration to the types of connection mechanisms that will be most appropriate for your design. JHP Fasteners has a wealth of knowledge and experience to bring to bear for you.
