PennEngineering announced ATLAS SpinTite blind threaded inserts for thin sheet applications with only one-sided access.
Installation is performed from the accessible “front” side, using spin-spin tooling technology, and the inserts become permanently mounted on the “back” side to accept a mating screw for final component attachment.
- Blind installation capability especially suits applications such as tubing, extrusions and others where access to the back side is either limited or nonexistent
- Steel, aluminum, brass or stainless steel inserts ideally replace tapped holes, weld nuts, rivets, self-drilling or tapping screws, and through-bolted applications necessitating loose hardware
- Supports close-to-edge applications and can be installed at any stage during the production process
