Sheet Metal Products: Self Clinching fastener solutions for pressing installation
TR Fastenings manufactures and distributes a wide spectrum of sheet metal fastening products that are pressed into pre-punched holes. These include our own branded Self Clinch fasteners, Hank® Rivet Bushes, and K-Series® Nuts. TR’s sheet metal clinching products provide strong load bearing threads in sheet metal of differing thicknesses
Installation process overview
Self Clinch fasteners are designed for installation when both sides of the sheet metal are accessible using a parallel squeezing force, delivered by pneumatic press.
The fast and simple pressing installation process using Self Clinch Studs, Nuts, Standoffs or Panel Fasteners creates mutual self deformation between the mating part and the sheet metal fixing. The clinch fastener becomes a permanent part of the sheet metal panel delivering a hugely reliable and strong fixing.
We hold an extensive range of our own branded Self Clinch products in stock, with access to either our own manufacturers or reliable distributor networks we can also deliver bespoke or product variants at speed.
