Sherex Application Spotlight: Replacing Welded Hex Fasteners with Full Hex Rivet Nuts!

 

Sherex's engineering team worked with a manufacturer of agricultural equipment to significantly reduce their fastener and installation costs for several key joints.

The Challenge:
  • The OEM was experiencing low throughput rates and creating toxic emissions by utilising weld nuts.
The Solution:
  • Sherex's engineering team designed and produced a full hex rivet nut to be installed using the FLEX-5 rivet nut installation tool.
  • The new solution increased throughput by 50%, eliminated toxic emissions, AND provided a significant cost savings to the OEM.
