SI® brand inserts employ press-in, molded-in, or heat/ultrasonic installation methods to provide strong, reusable, permanent threads in plastic materials.
The STICKSCREW® system is a unique small screw installation system which eliminates expensive screw handling equipment and loose hardware. The screws are tightened to an exact torque as determined by the stick/screw design.
Application Engineering Services / Representatives
From our factories or in the field we can provide you with application analysis/review, 3D modeling, product samples, on-site training and total engineering support.
CSI™ (Cost Savings Investigation)
The PEM® Cost Savings Investigation program was developed to help companies attain a lower “assembled cost” for their designs. You can put our global fastening expertise to work for you by allowing our CSI team to disassemble and carefully analyze your product. Our CSI team will then make recommendations to you on how to reduce fastener costs, assembly time and/or assembly steps. Click here to read more.
