PEM Inserting

What is Fastener Insertion?

Fastener insertion is the process of installing screws, bolts, nuts, rivets, or specialised inserts into materials to join them together. This process can be either manual or automated, depending on the volume of the products and the application required.

This is a critical step in the assembly process and is commonly used in the automotive, aerospace, electronics, construction, and manufacturing sectors. Secure and reliable connections are essential to the performance and integrity of the finished product, which is why many of those sectors choose fastener insertion.


Why use Fastener Insertion Services?

Fastener Insertion has many advantages that make it the perfect choice for your sheet metal needs.

Fasteners come in a wide range of types, sizes, and materials, allowing for flexibility in the design and assembly process.


Fasteners can be easily adjusted during the fabrication process, allowing for precise alignment of components.


Fasteners can be installed quickly, particularly when using more automated machines, resulting in faster production times.
