Learn about installing PEM hardware.
- [Instructor] Hardware comes in all shapes and sizes…from nuts to bolts to washers.…However, most of the hardware used in sheet metal parts…is captive, and needs to be inserted…to a sheet metal part with a hydraulic press.…Most of this hardware is produced by a company called Pem.…Pem Fasteners produces a full line of captive hardware…including nuts, stand-offs, threaded studs,…panel screws, and so on.…There's other companies also like Spiroflow…and Southco who produce captive bearings,…thumbscrews, and panel hardware.…To install the hardware we need a hydraulic press.…
You simply load the piece of hardware,…place the part on top, step on the foot pedal,…and acuate the press.…This press here is pushing about 2,000 pounds.…However, this press can push up to about 12,000 pounds…to install heavier duty hardware.…It's quick and easy work.…Just load the hardware,…(machine noise)…place the part,…(machine noise)…and acuate the press.…(machine noise)…Pem fasteners are provided in almost every size…and configuration you can think of…
First, review the sheet metal tools in SOLIDWORKS and the properties that make sheet metal unique: bend radius, K-factor, bend deduction, gauge thickness, and more. Then learn how to create basic parts, with base features, flanges, and bends that add strength and connections. Find out how to flatten parts and add holes, cuts, and corners that are manufacturing ready, and use the Convert to Sheet Metal command to convert imported geometry into native sheet metal parts. Gabriel also shows you how to create assemblies from multiple parts, use the Pattern and Mirrors tools to effortlessly duplicate existing work, and then document your designs with detailed sheet metal drawings. Watch the bonus videos to learn about the different machinery and processes that occur during manufacturing.
