Efficient Fastening of even the Thinnest Components

When KA Swanstrom founded Penn Engineering & Manufacturing Corp in 1942, he did so with a revolutionary new product: an easy-to-install, self-clinching fastener that provides load-carrying threads in metal sheets too thin to be tapped.

At first, Mr. Swanstrom produced his innovative design with four machines in a Doylestown, Pennsylvania garage. This simple operation soon gave way to a modern facility in Danboro, Pennsylvania as manufacturers and engineers alike recognised the benefits of self-clinching fasteners. They not only reduced time, labor, weight and inventory on many assembly jobs, but they also opened up a whole new world for engineers and designers, making a wide assortment of thin-metal designs possible for the first time.
