Hybrid Threadform Forming Tool



Mate's is designed to fasten two pieces of sheet metal together without tapping or secondary operations. "A 4-minute video shows how one customer saved 150% over traditional welding methods," said a company spokesperson.

Mate's tool is designed with an upper and lower insert machined with a profile that matches the thread helix of the screw head. Designed for use when the material thickness is greater than the screw pitch, Mate's Hybrid Threadform tool thins the material in the center of the form, creating a threadform helix so that the material fits between the pitch of the screw head in just one direction. It operates at speeds of 200 strokes a minute.

"The video details a real-world application using a Mate Hybrid Threadform tool to fabricate POP displays for the retail market," said the spokesperson. "The Hybrid Threadform tool eliminated the need for welding self-clinching nuts into display panels. The video proves the cost savings of just one cent per threadform hole versus fifteen cents for welding the nuts for this application. And the time savings for assembling this order of 10,000 displays was also huge, ensuring delivery of the entire display order weeks ahead of schedule."
