New Fastener: Pem® Type SGPC(TM) Swaging Collar Studs Accommodate Multiple Panels and Dissimilar Materials
New PEM® Type SGPC(TM) swaging collar studs provide ideal fastener solutions for attaching dissimilar panel materials and/or multiple panels. 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 limited-space applications.
PEM Type SGPC swaging collar studs can install into sheets as thin as .024" / 0.6mm and in multiple panels whose total thickness does not exceed the maximum sheet thickness of .047" / 1.2mm. 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 ¼-20 and M2.5 through M6. Lengths range from .312" through 1.50" and 8mm through 35mm.
Their 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.
