MATERIALS: New PEM®high tensile strength studs provide robust fastening solutions for the most demanding applications requiring superior thread strength and hardness. These Type HFG8TM (unified) and Type HF109TM (metric) clinch studs are specially heat-treated to achieve greater tensile strength up to Grade 8 (unified) and Property Class 10.9 (metric) meeting 150 ksi/1040 MPa minimum. Their large-diameter heads serve to reduce compressive stress on panels and promote development of full thread strength.These carbon alloy steel studs have been introduced in thread sizes up to 5/16-18 / M8 and in lengths up to 1 inch/25 mm. (Longer lengths can be specially ordered.) Appropriate sizes of the Grade 8 and Property Class 10.9 products meet SAE J429 and ISO 898-1/SAE J1199 specifications, respectively. They additionally carry the appropriate head markings.
The studs install permanently in carbon steel or HSLA steel sheets as thin as .040 inch/1.5 mm with hardness up to HRB 89 on the Rockwell “B” scale. Installation is accomplished easily (without welding) using standard punch and anvil or automated equipment. The studs enable reliable, secure, and simplified attachment of components or assemblies with only a mating part necessary to complete the process.
Wearables are changing the way we see ourselves. With onboard sensors that have access to our bodies, we are starting to know our physical selves like never before, quantifying our activity, our heart rate, breathing, and even our muscle effort.
This year, Design News is getting a head start on the Fourth of July celebration. In honor of our country and its legacy of engineering innovation -- in all of its forms -- we are taking you on an alphabetical tour through all 50 states to showcase interesting engineering breakthroughs and historically significant events.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
