The Flush 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 creating a flush-head assembly. The stud is locked into the sheet providing high torque-out and push-out resistance.
As an industrial fastener, the flush head self-clinching stud is an excellent choice for many applications. The fact that it is available in a variety of materials and thread sizes (both inch and metric) make it a popular choice among designers of industrial products. As a leading supplier of industrial fasteners, JHP Fasteners will provide you with a wealth of industry expertise to assist you in your product selection process.
