TackSert® Pin

The TackSert® Pins eliminate the need for loose hardware (screws and tapped holes) as well as the need for pressed-in inserts.
They provide a permanent solution, while installing with a quick and simple pressing action.

microPEM® Screws

A microPEM® screw can be offered for this assembly. This would be a direct fit, non-permanent solution.

 

PEM® Snap-in™ Fasteners

An alternative is the snap-in fastener that provides sufficient clamp load with a very low profile head (0.15 mm).
The snap-in fastener eliminates the need for loose hardware and tapped holes.

 

PEM® Inserts

All brass threaded inserts could be replaced by PEM® Aluminum Standard Inserts made from 2024-T4,
with the results of lower cost and approximately 70% lighter material.
