Traditional weld nuts (caged or anchor), self tapping screws for metal, and sheet metal screws can be expensive options when considering total installed cost. And they can lengthen your time to market from secondary operations and inefficient installation time.

Choose PEM® clinch nuts, heavy-duty studs, surface mount technology, micro fasteners, and SI® threaded inserts for your automotive electronics applications – and move forward with cost savings, reliability, and eco-friendly performance.
