PEM62 Blind NutsPEM self-clinching blind nuts permanently install into thin metal sheets to provide reliable and re-usable metal threads, and completing final component attachment in an assembly, says PennEngineering. Their closed-end design protects the nut’s threads against foreign matter and potential damage to internal components from mating screws.

The company says the carbon steel (Type B) and stainless steel (Type BS) nuts install quickly and permanently into aluminium or steel sheets as thin as .040”/1mm.
