PEM introduces the RVTB captivated threaded rivet bushes, designed to deliver exceptional performance in thin sheet metal applications. These rivet bushes, including PEM RAB, RABS, Type RMAB, and RMABS, provide robust and reusable threads in ultra-thin panels, making them an ideal choice for a wide range of industries and applications.
“The introduction of rivet bushes completes our industrial fabricator product lineup, and positions PEM as the go-to destination for captive fasteners in thin sheet materials,” said Mary Ann Fleming, president at PEM Europe. “They allow installation into panel materials with excessive hardness, where conventional self-clinching fasteners cannot be installed.
“Rivet bushes can be used for non-ferrous metals like aluminium alloy, copper, and brass or even non-metallic materials such as plastic and asbestos. Riveted joints are free from thermal after-effects because no heat is required in the joint.”
Fleming continued: “We take it a step further, to guarantee the joint’s integrity, instilling absolute trust in the installation process when using a Haeger and PEMSERTER installation machine for auto-feeding. Fabricators have consistently expressed their desire for automated rivet bush installation, and we've heeded their call. In fact, we take pride in being the sole company in the market that manufactures both the rivet bush and its installation.”
