Large Head Self Clinching Stud Application notes:

  • The wide-head self-clinching stud is inserted by placing into a properly sized hole and then squeezing into position via use of any standard press device. The metal displaced by the squeezing process flows around the ribs and into the groove providing high torque-out and push-out performance. Depending on stud thread size and sheet material, an installation force of between 7500 and 15500 pounds will be required for proper insertion.
  • These industrial fasteners provide strong and durable performance. For example:
    • Depending on stud thread size and the type of sheet material being used, these self-clinching studs provide push-out performance of between 165 and 570 pounds. Torque-out performance would be between 58 and 288 pounds. Pull-thru performance would be between 1900 and 6400 pounds.

As the above data indicates, the wide-head self-clinching stud provides performance that is difficult to beat in terms of strength and durability. They also eliminate the costly and cumbersome process associated with the use of weld studs. If you want to avoid welding, then selection of the wide-head self-clinching stud may be the fastener for you.
