PEM® Type SMPS™ self-clinching nuts can be mounted up to 50% closer to the edge of ultra-thin steel sheets than standard self-clinching nuts. Their relatively lower profile (smaller diameter and height) further makes these fasteners ideal to serve in applications where space for attachment hardware is limited.
These self-clinching nuts have been engineered to install in steel sheets as thin as .025”/0.64mm. Their diameter (.220”/5.6mm) and height (0.65”/5.6mm) contribute to the low-profile design requiring minimal “real estate.”
The nuts install permanently and will not loosen, fall out, or otherwise adversely impact end-product integrity or performance. They provide reliable and reusable threads for a mating screw to complete final component attachment with the least amount of hardware.
The fasteners are made from 300 Series stainless steel and are available in unified and metric thread sizes #2-56 through #6-32 and M2.5 through M3.5. They are RoHS compliant.
In cases where hardware is installed prior to painting or similar operations, an optional PEM® Blu-Coat™ thread mask can be specially applied in advance. Threads of the mating hardware during assembly will remove the paint, electro-deposited automotive under coatings, or weld splatter upon application of torque.
