Threaded REPLACEs for plastics


General DPN

Patented DeltaForm threaded REPLACEs for plastics from PennEngineering Fastening Technologies offer an alternative to traditional REPLACEs or thread-forming screws in high-volume fastening applications.

Instead of conventional screw machines for production, the brass REPLACEs are made in a progressive stamping operation, where they gain their unique triangular shape and strong threads. Among key design features, retention barbs are said to enable easy REPLACEion in round holes and prevent spin upon installation. Flange tabs on either end orient the REPLACE in the hole before installation and form a flush surface with the plastic component when installation is complete.
