A Systems Approach to Attaining Multiple Thread Fasteners in Thin Sheet Metal Sections 700008
The methods of applying fasteners has taken on new significance with the increased need to automate the manufacturing assembly function. A systems approach is described which allows installation of multiple threaded nuts in sheet metal simultaneous with other stamping operation.
Justification for new approaches to fastening procedures is documented. Both system philosophy and hardware approach are treated in detail, including identifying the problem, designing for solution, supplier and user agreement and execution of the plan.
