Sheet Metal Fasteners
PSM International’s Sheet Metal Fasteners provide deep tapped female threads or studs to be used in conjunction with thin sheet metallic materials. The fastener is permanently attached to the parent material allowing the associated bolt (or nut) to be removed without risk of the fastener becoming dislodged. This feature has allowed industry to streamline production methods and fabricate complex shapes including closed box sections. Our sheet metal fasteners include Self-Clinching Fasteners, our Anchor® Rivet Bush series, unique FLANGEFORM® fasteners, and our high strength GRIPFORM® fasteners.
