Captive HCH Series high-torque self-clinching studs are installed by squeezing into punched or drilled holes, which require no further preparation. The studs are manufactured in carbon steel or 300 Series stainless steel, in inch and metric thread sizes. They may be installed into aluminum and steel sheet material with standard industrial presses. The studs are also available with an optional dog point, which is targeted for use in attaching mating nuts using motorized nut drivers in high-speed production assembly. Applications include heavy-duty ones where increased pull-through and torque-out resistance are required.
Design collaboration now includes the entire value chain. From suppliers to customers, purchasing to outside experts, the collaborative design team includes internal and external groups. The design process now stretches across the globe in multiple software formats.
A new high-pressure injection-molding technology produces near-net shape parts with 2-inch-thick walls from high-performance materials like PEEK, PAI, and carbon-filled polymers. Parts show no voids, sinks, or porosity, have more consistent mechanical properties, and are stronger.
