Although innovations are moving forward in steel and all metals, aluminum remains a popular choice for many fastening applications in auto making — and particularly when it comes to weight advantages and flexibility. Ramco, a provider and producer of critical components, offers a go-to choices for these applications: clinch and pierce nuts.
Ramco’s certified Strux fasteners are ideal for aluminum applications. The six, equally spaced, raised lobes on a Strux nut create resistance to rotation and push-out during service. The Strux clinch nut also excels in assemblies where welding is not possible or preferred.
Strux nuts are lightweight, easy to install in different kinds of metal, are made in USA. What’s more: they are ideal for installation in-die.
Addition, Ramco’s square pierce nuts are excellent for non-welding and thin-sheet aluminum applications. Employing either of these nuts in aluminum applications:
- Helps manufacturers in forming a particular joint;
- Saves costs by inserting nuts in-die; and
- Provides a manufacturing tool that creates the stamping.
Ramco can deliver the critical components required for any application.
