MATERIALS:ATLAS® FM™ blind threaded inserts introduce full metric fastening solutions for “blind” attachment applications where only one side of a panel is accessible for hardware installation. These inserts install quickly and easily from the accessible “front” side with only a single mating screw required to complete final component attachment. Their introduction extends the traditional ATLAS product line of inserts featuring unified or metric threads. The “blind” attachment capability ideally suits one-sided access applications such as tubing and extrusions, among others. These fasteners offer practical alternatives to tapped holes, weld nuts, rivets, and self-drilling or tapping screws, and can satisfy close-to-edge mounting challenges.
ATLAS FM inserts install into metric size round or hex holes in panels of any hardness as thin as 0.51 mm. They are available in thread sizes M3 to M10 and can be specified in a variety of head styles (flat, thin or countersunk), body types (round smooth or knurled, half hex or full hex) and materials (steel, stainless steel, aluminum or brass). The inserts can be installed permanently anywhere and at any stage in the shop or field using a spin/pull action tool.
Transfers the control of a large number of motion axes from one numerical control kernel to another within a CNC system, using multiple NCKs, and enables implement control schemes for virtually any type of machine tool.
