Feed system for captive fasteners

A feeding system for a captive fastener system is now available from Bollhoff, which provides a range of feed heads into press tooling. The systems require compressed air and standard mains voltage.

Threaded Kapti Nut fasteners are installed using a mechanical tool-and-die process into pre-punched sheets. Several nuts can be fitted at a time.

During the joining process, the nut forms a flange on the rear of the sheet.

Standard dimensions are M5, M6, M8 and M10.

A second product variant includes a threaded screw.
