Threaded rivets and fasteners are a practical and effective solution for creating a load-bearing thread on metal too thin to tap, or difficult-to-tap materials such as composites or plastics. The benefits of threaded rivets include the ability to use an internal thread, which can help streamline and speed up assembly processes while eliminating the fear of losing a nut or bolt in a delicate assembly such as a circuit board.
Threaded rivets that feature an internal thread are used for screw attachments in a wide range of applications and industries, including medical equipment manufacturing, industrial controls, appliances, furniture, and electronics.
In additional to internal-threaded rivets there are external threaded rivets and even fasteners with internal and external threads for even greater fastening versatility and capability. These dual threaded rivets enable you to screw the rivet into a component or product and then screw something into it – ideal for assembling a base unit and providing flexible functionality for add-on components.
