Sheet-To-Sheet Attachment

Allows permanent joining of two metal sections and metal to PCB/plastic panels
  • Alternative to riveting and welding.
  • No special installation equipment required.
  • Flush mounted on both sides.
  • Minimal space requirements.
  • Can be installed blind into bottom (panel 2) sheet.
  • Can be concealed with paints and powder coatings.
The PEM® SpotFast® self-clinching fastener creates a permanent, flush joining of two sheets. The RoHScompliant fasteners install smooth with the top sheet, and flush or sub-flush with the bottom sheet. Squeezing the fastener into place causes a cold-flow of panel material into the fastener’s two separate clinch profiles. Type SF, SFP, and SFW fasteners can attach two metal sheets too thin to weld; fasten sheets of unequal thicknesses; join dissimilar metals unable to be welded; and even attach ultra-thin metal sections. Type SFP fasteners are made from precipitation hardened stainless steel for installation into stainless steel sheets where corrosion resistance may be required.
