Original Press Release:
Atlas(TM) Maxtite® Threaded Rivet Nuts Ideal for High-Load Attachment Applications
Heavy-duty Atlas(TM) MaxTite® threaded rivet nuts feature a thicker head and heavier wall than standard rivet nuts for use in demanding high-load applications. These fasteners are designed to provide strong, permanent metal threads in "blind" attachment applications, where only one side of a workpiece is accessible for fastener installation and final component assembly.
They can serve as practical alternatives to tapped holes, weld nuts, rivets, and self-drilling or tapping screws.
Installed from the accessible "front" side of a workpiece, Atlas MaxTite threaded rivet nuts can be utilized in panels as thin as .020"/0.51mm. Their use eliminates any need for additional hardware beyond a mating screw to complete component attachment.
Available types include flathead and countersunk (with the countersunk feature enabling the fastener to be installed flush with the surface of a sheet). Rib or key features are offered for high-torque applications. Thread sizes range from #4-40 through 1/2"-13 and M3 through M12.
Unlike weld nuts or press-in type nuts, Atlas MaxTite threaded rivet nuts can be installed permanently anywhere and at any stage in the shop or field utilizing a hand-held portable tool.
