New PEM® Type SGPC™ swaging collar studs from PennEngineering® are designed to attach dissimilar panel materials and multiple panels. They can accommodate most panel materials, including stainless steel, and exhibit strong torque-out resistance, the manufacturer says. Their design allows for close centerline-to-edge distance for limited-space applications.
The studs can install into sheets as thin as 0.024 in. and in multiple panels not exceeding 0.047 in. thick. They are manufactured from 300 Series stainless steel and can be used in sheets of any hardness.
The studs are available in thread sizes #2-56 through ¼-20 and M2.5 through M6. Lengths are from 0.312 through 1.50 in.
