Portable Tools, Fasteners & Hardware

Hydropneumatic Tool hastens blind threaded insert installation.

October 7, 2014

Operating on 90 psi air pressure, Atlas® RIV949 accelerates and facilitates installation of blind threaded inserts. Installation can be accomplished without access to both sides, and inserts provide strong and reusable threads upon installation to accommodate mating hardware for final component attachment. Offering pull-to-pressure or pull-to-stroke modes, hydropneumatic tool can be equipped with unified or metric nose assemblies and can develop 4,721 lb of pull force. Read More

Heavy-Duty Studs clinch permanently into thin metal sheets.

August 29, 2014

Available in lengths up to 2 in., PEM® Type THFE™ Studs feature enlarged head diameter that distributes axial tightening force over wide area to minimize compressive stress on host panel, optimize pull through performance, and develop full thread strength. Self-clinching studs install into steel or aluminum sheets as thin as .031 in. with hardness of HRB 85 or less on Rockwell B scale and HB 165 or less on Hardness Brinell scale. Thread sizes range from ¼-20 through 5/16-18 and M6–M8. Read More

Spring-Loaded Plunger Assemblies serve as positioning pins.

August 21, 2014

Designed to install permanently in aluminum or steel sheets as thin as .060 in. with hardness of HRB 80 or less, PEM® Type PTL2™ Assemblies serve as positioning pins to quickly move racks, slides, access panels, consoles, and similar equipment without requiring tools. Lockout feature keeps fastener's spring-loaded plunger fully retracted until plunger pin drops into final position. Quarter-turn of fastener activates retracted locking and unlocking functions.

Electronics Assembly Pins provide alternative to screws.

August 5, 2014

Used to securely attach top panels to base panel or chassis in compact electronic assemblies via press-in action, microPEM® TackSert™ pins provide alternatives to micro screws and eliminate issues associated with threaded hardware. Diagonal knurl holds top panel of any material and as thin as .008 in. to base panel or chassis manufactured from magnesium die-cast materials or plastics. During installation, tapered tip aids in location, and firm interference fit eliminates hole-tolerance issues. Read More

Fastener-Installation Press includes optical safety sensor.

July 15, 2014

Designed for installing self-clinching fasteners, PEMSERTER® Series 4® integrates Optical Sensor Indicator to signal when safety is properly set for each job. OSI activates during set-up mode when press ram/punch is being adjusted onto workpiece prior to fastener installation. OSI changes from black to orange at exact point when safety is successfully engaged, eliminating potential for operator error. Featuring 18 in. throat depth, press achieves adjustable insertion force from 400 lb to 6 tons. Read More

Self-Clinching Flush Nuts install into stainless steel sheets.

July 3, 2014

Manufactured from 400 Series stainless steel, PEMSERT® Type F4™ Self-Clinching Flush Nuts provide load-bearing threads in 300 Series stainless steel without creating protrusions on either side. Upon permanent installation into sheets as thin as .060 in., both top and bottom of sheet will remain flat. Nuts are available in thread sizes #2-56 through ¼-20 / M2 through M6 and can perform as intended in stainless steel sheets with hardness up to HRB 88 on Rockwell B scale. Read More

Self-Clinching Standoffs suit thin stainless steel assemblies.

April 16, 2014

Manufactured from heat-treated 400 Series stainless steel, PEM® Type TSO4™ standoffs are used for stacking or spacing components to or from ultra-thin stainless steel panels as thin as .025 in. and with max hardness of HRB 88 on Rockwell B scale or HB 183 on Brinell scale. Hardened stainless fasteners install permanently; one mating screw is required for final component attachment. Various styles, including thru-threaded or blind threaded versions, and lengths are available. Read More

Self-Clinching Studs attach thin metal assemblies.

March 13, 2014

Designed to install permanently using standard press, PEM® Self-Clinching Threaded Studs include flush-head models for use in aluminum or stainless steel sheets as thin as .040 in. and stainless versions for corrosion resistance in even thinner stainless steel assemblies. Other types include low-displacement flush head studs for close-to-edge installation; non-flush studs for sheets as thin as .020 in.; and heavy-duty studs whose heads project above sheet to distribute axial tightening force.
