New PEMType SGPC swaging collar studs
provide fastener solutions for attaching dissimilar panel materials and/or
multiple panels. PEM Type SGPC swaging collar studs can install into sheets as
thin as .024 inch / 0.6 mm and in multiple panels whose total thickness does
not exceed the maximum sheet thickness of .047 inch / 1.2 mm. They are
manufactured from 300 Series stainless steel promoting corrosion resistance and
can be used in sheets of any hardness. The studs are available in thread sizes
#2-56 through Â¼-20 and M2.5 through M6. Lengths range from .312 through 1.50
inch and 8 through 35 mm.
permanent installation is quick and easy using standard punch and anvil. After
inserting the stud into a properly sized mounting hole in the host sheet and
with punch and anvil surfaces parallel, sufficiently applied squeezing force
pushes the punch over the protruding knurls of the stud and the fastener then
becomes locked securely in place. They can accommodate most panel materials --
including stainless steel -- and will exhibit strong torque-out resistance.
Their design additionally allows for close centerline-to-edge distance to suit
