Cold-formed carbon steel ensures high strength attachment in plastic components.

Enables Verification

Allows for torque monitoring of the joint due to excellent torque resistance.


Engineered for plastic components with high serviceability requirements.

Enables Lightweighting

Aids in mass/weight reduction by enabling conversion of some components from metal to plastic without losing any integrity of joint performance.

Enables Assembly Options

Can be installed with induction-press heat staking (recommended) or can be molded-in to the assembly. Can also be cold-pressed into plastic.
