An updated 14-page “Self-Clinching Fastener Handbook” is now available free from PennEngineering®. The publication serves as a useful educational resource and general reference guide about self-clinching fastener technology.
The illustrated “Self-Clinching Fastener Handbook” provides an informative overview about these types of fasteners and profiles the self-clinching process. Self-clinching fasteners install permanently in thin metal sheets and promote secure attachment of components using fewer parts and assembly steps than possible with conventional attachment hardware.
The handbook covers the general types of self-clinching fasteners and their simple step-by-step installation procedure. Trouble-shooting tips with solutions for potential problems are outlined and crucial issues of quality and reliability are reviewed.
A special section answers the “10 Most Frequently Asked Questions” about self-clinching fasteners. The handbook concludes with a glossary of relevant industry terms.
The “Self-Clinching Fastener Handbook” is available in a traditional printed version or can be downloaded free in PDF format from the Web site at this link:
