Join Gabriel Corbett for an in-depth discussion in this video Hardware, part of SOLIDWORKS 2013-2017: Sheet Metal Design.
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.…It needs to be inserted into a sheet metal part with a hydraulic press.…Most of this hardware is produced by a company called PEM.…PEM fasteners produces a full lineup of captive hardware including nuts,…standoffs, threaded studs, panel screws, and so on.…There's other companies also, like Spyraflo and SouthCo, who produce captive…bearings, thumb screws and panel hardware. To install the hardware, we need a…hydraulic press. (SOUND) We simply load the piece of…hardware, place the part on top, step on the foot pedal and activate the press.…
This press here is pushing, about 2,000 pounds.…However, this press can push up to about 12,000 pounds to install heavy duty hardware.…(SOUND) It's quick and easy work. (SOUND) Just load the hardware, place the…part and actuate the press. Pin fasteners are provided in almost every…size and configuration you can think of, Have small 256 screws all the way up to…
