Sheet metal inserts - Hank bushes
Using screws and nuts to fasten sheet metal components together has been a production method used for centuries. To speed up the assembly process or to fix a nut in an awkward or blind place is where self-clinch and anchor rivet buses really come into their own. We use a Haeger bush inserter and various manual and hydraulic fly-presses to press the fixings into our sheet metal work in all sheet materials from 0.7mm thick and upwards. Single side approaches, such as tubes, can also be dealt with by using Avdell style single side bushes.
As well as standard metric and imperial thread bushes we regularly insert stand-offs, studs and many specialised inserts into our sheet metal work for example captive thumb screws. Have a look at our Haeger bush inserter webpage for more information on this plant and links to more detailed information on self-clinch and anchor rivet bushes. If you have an odd requirement and are not sure whether there is a sheet metal insert solution available for you give us a call and we can investigate it for you.
