Sherex Fastening Solutions and Traceparts Internet Service have partnered up to provide a 3D interactive online catalog for engineers and designers. Sherex customers can configure rivet nut fasteners and threaded brass inserts for plastics and then download 3D CAD models of the products in an “as installed state” directly into their designs.
RIV-FLOAT® -The internally floating threads on RIV-FLOAT®allow for component attachments in off center applications and can accommodate for tolerance stack up in the manufacturing process. The floating nut (.020″ radial float) aligns the drive angle of the screw and thus eliminates cross threading and spinout.
RIV-FLOAT® was designed for post installation in applications where cage nuts, clinch nuts, floating nut plates or weld nuts are typically used.
Brass Inserts – Threaded Brass Insert for plastics are typically used when strong durable threads are required in plastic materials, especially when frequent assembly and disassembly of the unit for service or repair is necessary. Brass Inserts are available in a large variety if ultrasonic, heat staking, molded in,or press-in installation methods. Applications for the brass inserts for plastics vary from communication equipment, automotive industry, computer industry, and anywhere strong durable threads are required in plastics.
