Press-in stud with flange

Application area

  • These press-in studs can be used for component thicknesses from 1.0 to 4.0 mm and tensile strengths of up to 1200 MPa
  • Suitable for a wide range of high dynamic, static and impact load conditions
  • Suitable for use where threaded fittings need to be resistant to high axial forces
  • Can be used for aluminium or other materials
  • Suitable for use with surface-treated, galvanised or painted components

Technical characteristics

  • Thread sizes: M5 to M12
  • FK 8 (standard)
  • Resistance to corrosion in accordance with the customerĀ“s requirements
  • Pre-punched processing
  • No adverse effects on the joint or function of the thread; no damage due to weld spatters
  • High resistance to twist and ejection forces
  • Stud positioning tolerance ranges can be halved as compared to welding methods
  • Straightforward, in-process and non-destructive quality testing possible by worker instead of elaborate destructive tests
  • No stud deformation during pressing-in procedure

Processing steps

  • Prepare hole
  • Position component above die
  • The support fastener is pushed through the component material by means of axial motion
  • The specific geometry of the die is used to form from the hole walling of the component material the surrounding area at the head underside of the press-in stud so as to result in a form-fitting and friction-locking connection. There is no deformation of the stud
