Aero-Space Southwest also offers outstanding field engineering support to help you select the ideal self-clinching hardware for your specific applications.  Some of the advantages of self-clinching fasteners are:

  • They provide strong threads in very thin material.
  • May be installed using any standard Arbor press.
  • Provide high push-out and torque-out resistance.
  • Do not require special hole preparation, such as chamfering and deburring.
  • Reverse side of material remains flush.
  • No re-tapping necessary after application.
  • Low installed costs, fewer parts to handle, fewer assembly steps and less assembly time.

When considering fasteners it is important to consider if a self-clinching fastener should be specified.  Whenever a component must be readily replaced and where "loose" nuts and hardware aren't going to be accessible, then a self-clinching fastener should be utilized.  If you are building a chassis, enclosure or cabinet, consider if the "nuts" and "screws" can be reached after it is assembled.  If your answer is they are not accessible, then self-clinching fasteners are the solution to your problem. 

Today, self-clinching hardware is commonly used worldwide by many manufacturers in many industries including aerospace, military, medical, automotive, telecommunication, computer, gaming equipment and systems. Aero-Space Southwest has  the inventory and resources to fulfill your requirements.
