Stainless steel front panels with stainless steel stand offs.
If you are looking for sheet metal components manufactured with sheet metal pressed inserts you have certainly come to the right place. Based in Fareham, Hampshire, UK right by the M27 for over 30 years we have produced a wide range of sheet metal components with inserted studs, bushes and standoffs. Whether it is stainless steel panels, aluminium enclosures, mild steel angle brackets or welded fabrications we have a vast experience of pressing in a wide range of inserts. The 2 sheet metal work examples shown here happen to both be manufactured from 304 stainless steel. As well as the components being in different ferrous and non-ferrous materials we can also insert stainless steel, aluminium alloy and mild steel zinc plated fixings. With the wide range of designs available to you there is always a solution that we can use to help speed up your assembly.
Sheet metal work with pressed studs inserted
All the sheet metal components that we manufacture here at V and F Sheet Metal have inserts pressed in either on our Haeger bush / stud inserter or various fly-presses. Both methods work well in pressing inserts into pre-punched or laser cut holes. The positional tolerances are to within +/-0.2mm and they are very reliable. As well as the standard self-clinch and hank style anchor rivet style bushes / studs there are many specialist parts that can be inserted. For example there are inserts allowing PCB to be snapped in place or bushes with nylon rings to prevent screws vibrating out when in operation.
If you want more information on the types of pressed inserted that we can source and insert for you please give us a call on 01489 577786 and we will be happy to advise you on the right solution for your sheet metal component design.
