Self-clinching fasteners were first developed in the U.S. some 70+ years ago as a way to handle high torque loads in thin pieces of sheet metal. Electronic Fasteners, Inc. (EFI) offers self-clinching options for a variety of fasteners, including nuts, studs, and stand-offs.
These components create permanent, sturdy threads in soft materials, making them hard to remove or even rotate.
Self-clinching hardware offers significant benefits, including:
- Increased durability and strength compared to conventional fasteners
- The ability to withstand heavy torque loads
- Permanent and simple to install
- A reduced need for replacement parts
- Overall reliability
EFI is a stocking distributor, supplying quality fasteners for industrial, commercial, and mil-spec fastener markets. The company offers self-clinching fasteners for nearly all commercial, industrial, or technical applications requiring solid, hard-to-remove fasteners.
