Standardized self-clinching fasteners for a stable and permanent connection in sheet metal

Self-clinching fasteners for detachable fastenings in sheet metal processing

Self-clinching fasteners are standard parts that provide sheet metal components with detachable fastening elements. The Self-clinching fasteners are inserted into a receiving hole in the workpiece. The mounting hole is slightly smaller than the standard part to be used.

A special press-in machine is then used to apply targeted pressure to the fastener to be pressed in. Due to the pressure, the depressed part moves the material into the area of the receiving hole.

Due to this cold forming, the displaced material is pressed into a prepared undercut in the shank area of the connecting element. To prevent the Self-clinching fasteners from twisting, it either has a special head shape or a serration. These connections also withstand extreme loads.
