Fix multiple panels even with dissimilar materials

PEM has released a swaging collar stud which is suitable for attaching dissimilar panel materials and multiple panels.

Type SGPC can accommodate most panel materials -- including stainless steel -- and exhibits strong torque-out resistance. The fastener's design allows for close centreline-to-edge distance to suit limited-space applications.

The RoHS-compliant studs can install into sheets as thin as 0.6mm and in multiple panels whose total thickness does not exceed the maximum sheet thickness of 1.2mm. They are manufactured from 300 Series stainless steel promoting corrosion resistance and can be used in sheets of any hardness.
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.

The product is available in the UK from authorised distributor Zygology, which provides technical and sales support for PEM self-clinch fasteners.

Visit Zygology at FAST Exhibition SOUTHWEST at the Haynes Motor Museum near Yeovil on 12th May.
