Round shoulder nut, conical

The nut is pierced into the component from the screw fitting side. This can help resolve access problems.

Application area

  • These rivet nuts can be used for component thicknesses from 0.75 to 2.0 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
  • Also suitable for the accommodation of lateral forces
  • Can be used for aluminium
  • Suitable for use with surface-treated, galvanised or painted components

Technical characteristics

  • The nut is placed from the screw fitting side
  • Thread sizes: M6 and M8
  • FK 8 (standard)
  • Resistance to corrosion in accordance with the customerĀ“s requirements
  • No adverse effects on the joint or function of the thread; no damage due to weld spatters
  • High resistance to twist and ejection forces, even for thin sheet metals
  • Water-tight and gas-tight in reference to the requirements demanded by the automotive sector and dependent on the quality of the component material
  • Nut 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
