Self clinching parts

Sheet metal fasteners with internal and external threads are especially suitable for working with thin metal sheets starting with 0.5 mm thickness. This reduces the thickness of the elements in general in favour of lower weight and less material. After processing they are permanently connected to the base material. The screwed connections can be removed afterwards without risking displacement of the fastener. Through this the production processes are rationalized and secured.

Mechanical insertion prevent the surface from damage and enables the usage also in prefabricated materials. A typical application nowadays for example is the production of communication media (smart phones, computers, notebooks) or the automotive industry.

VVG Befestigungstechnik keeps a large assortment of high-quality sheet metal fasteners and rivets for steel sheets as a perfect addition to the well-proven blind rivet products of HONSEL Group on stock.

A diversity of thousands of versions and the habitual VVG delivery service guarantees optimal and reliable support - also for individual adjustments.

Self clinching nuts

A self-clinching nut is a threaded fastener with a knurl and a groove. The knurl ensures that the displaced material is distributed evenly into the groove on the nut when it is embedded into the metal sheet, such that an especially secure hold is achieved.

Self clinching rivet nuts

Self-clinching rivet nuts from series 10.455 and 10.456 are riveted into the component. A shaft is passed through a pre-punched hole in the component and riveted on the opposite side. The base material is not deformed in the process.

Self clinching studs

Self-clinching studs are fasteners that have a serration under the head. At inserting into the metal sheet it presses the displaced material into the rivet ring to secure the fastener.

Self clinching standoffs

Self-clinch standoffs can serve as spacers or distance pieces. The hexagon head is simply pressed into the metal sheet, that the material will compress in the nut. The pressing in at the head finishes completely flush .
