Handbook focuses on self-clinching fasteners

The new 16-page Self-Clinching Fastener Handbook is offered by PennEngineering Fastening Technologies. The publication can serve as a resource and reference guide about self-clinching fastener technology and related topics.

This illustrated handbook provides an overview of these types of fasteners and describes how and why the self-clinching process proves effective in enabling secure attachment of thin metal components using fewer parts and assembly steps.

General types of fasteners are profiled, as well as installation procedure and problems, possible causes, and solutions.

A special section answers the “10 Most Frequently Asked Questions” about self-clinching fasteners.
