All online CAD drawings for PennEngineering® Fastening Technologies' entire line of fastener products now can be inserted directly into many CAD systems. No download or importing is required.
The new tool allows designers to insert drawings directly into as many as 30 different CAD systems and versions, as well as enabling downloads into as many as 20 each 2-D and 3-D file formats.
With the tool, the designer selects the fastener, presses the button, and the geometry immediately is inserted into a design. The online CAD library includes drawings of all types of PEM self-clinching fasteners for thin metal sheets; broaching fasteners to attach printed circuit boards and nonductile materials; Atlas SpinTite®, MaxTite®, and Plus+Tite™ threaded inserts for use in blind-attachment applications; and SI threaded metal inserts.
