PEM self-clinching threaded studs offer a practical alternative to weld studs or other joining methods claims the company. 
The product line-up includes types of flush-head studs for use in aluminium or steel sheets down to .040”/1mm thickness and stainless versions offering corrosion resistance in even thinner stainless steel assemblies. Also low-displacement flush head studs for close-to-edge installation and non-flush studs for sheets as thin as .020”/0.51mm. Designed for high loads, heavy-duty studs with heads project above the thin host sheet to distribute axial tightening force over a larger area and high tensile strength studs are available.
