microPEM® FlexTack™ Fasteners designed to increase vertical installation in designs

  • Alternative to using micro-screws, eliminating the need to tap or use threaded inserts.
  • Installation time to simply press the part in (1.5 seconds) is less than the time to thread a screw in, equals less total installed cost.
  • The Belleville-shaped head allows for stack-up tolerance relief in a design.
  • Lowers overall total installed costs from the elimination of the following: patch to prevent loosening, threaded insert or tapped hole and driver bits, cost of rework due to cross-threading or driver bit “cam-out”

microPEM® ClampDisk® Fastener

  • Clamp load generation.
  • Simple installation.
  • Removability.
  • Works with multiple panels of any material.
  • Limited installation stress to assemble.

microPEM® TackSert® Type TK™ Pins

  • Secure panels to common magnesium die casting materials such as AZ91D.
  • Appropriate for attaching panels to plastics such as ABS.
  • Simple, press-in installation. Does not require heat or ultrasonics.
  • Alternative to micro screws, eliminating many of the costs associated with threaded hardware.
  • Top sheet can be any material.
  • Low-profile head.

microPEM® Self-Clinching TackPin® Fasteners-Designed for Sheet-to-Sheet Attachment


microPEM® Self-Clinching TackScrew™ Fasteners-Designed for Sheet-to-Sheet Attachment

  • Simple, press-in installation for secure attachment.
  • Twist out (unscrews) if removal is necessary.
  • Replaces micro screws, eliminating installation issues.
  • If removed, fastener can be reinstalled one time using permanent thread locking adhesive.
  • Can be installed automatically for high volume applications.
