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.
The 3D printing revolution seems to have a knack for quickly moving technology ahead by way of collaborative effort and even a little friendly competition -- all of course in the name of scientific advancement.
Advantech has launched a new series of motion-control I/O modules to meet the increased demands that come with more distributed industrial systems that require control of a growing number of axes and devices.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
