Sheet Nuts

SKU: SMF11 Category:

A sheet nut is a type of nut or threaded insert that is used on sheet metal.

They permanently achor themselves to the sheet metal via a process called ‘swaging’, the use of grooves.

Generally made from hard metals such as stainless steel, they are inserted into a softer material such as aluminium.

This is a popular method for adding load-bearing threads to a relatively thin piece of soft sheet metal.

Available from M3 to M8 as standard, with specials available order.

Please call us for more information.
