Captive Series CHTS Studs provide a strong, flush-head assembly in stainless steel sheet material as thin as .040 in. (1.0 mm). The heat-treated 400 Series stainless steel studs may be installed with a standard shop press and provide high torque-out and pushout performance in materials with a Rockwell Hardness of B-92 or less.
Self-clinching nuts provide a strong female thread in panels that are too thin to be conventionally tapped. They are installed by placing them in properly pre-cut holes in sheets and applying enough force for metal to cold flow into an undercut.

Self-Clinching Studs
Self-clinching studs are installed by placing them in properly pre-cut holes in sheets and applying enough force for metal to cold flow into an undercut.
This allows the nut to be integrated into the sheet with a strong bond, but installs flush on the underside of the panel. The serrated ring prevents the nut from rotating and have excellent torque and push out characteristics.

Standoffs 
Standoffs are used in applications that require mounting, spacing or stacking panels, boards or components. These standoffs are pressed into pre-cut round holes and pressed with parallel squeezing force.They can mount permanently to sheets as thin as 0.025"/0.63mm.

Pins and Other 
Self-clinching pins are ideal for compact electronic assemblies. These pins are easily installed by squeezing them into a properly sized hole in a sheet. With applied force, the metal will cold flow and clinch them permanently into place. They can be installed into a variety of hardness (HRB 92/ HB195).
