HONSEL self clinching parts

Self clinching nuts V-S / V-SS

A self-clinching nut is a threaded fastener with a knurl and a groove. The knurl ensures that the displaced material is distributed evenly into the groove on the nut when it is embedded into the metal sheet, such that an especially secure hold is achieved.

Self clinching nuts V-F

The flush nuts from this serie provide a thread within the thickness of the metal sheet with a flush finish on both sides. The hexagonal head is simply pressed into the metal sheet in such a way that the metal places itself evenly around the item’s conical shaft and secures it reliably in place.

Self-clinching studs

Self-clinching studs feature serration beneath their heads; this pushes displaced material into the rivet ring when the fastener is inserted into the metal sheet, thus securing the fastener in place.

Self clinching standoffs

Self-clinching standoffs can serve as distance pieces. The hexagon head is simply pressed into the metal sheet in such a way that the material is swaged into the groove. The pressing at the head results in a completely flush finish.

A wide selection of open and closed versions is available. For high-stress applications, versions with larger heads and higher tractive power can be produced.
