Remform screws from Arnold Umformtechnik GmbH & Co. (Forchtenberg-Ernsbach, Germany) reduce the overall assembly cost of plastic parts because they do not require nuts or inserts. They furthermore ensure the highest levels of assembly security, due to a specific design that creates a large difference between the forming torque and the stripping torque. The main application of Remform for plastic parts assembly is the automotive industry.
In contrast to other joining methods for plastic components, direct assembly with Remform screws does not require nuts or inserts to hold the components together. Remform screws form their own threads and the necessary core hole in the plastic component concerned. This eliminates the need for cost-intensive processes involved in joint preparation. Simultaneously, the high threading speed required by the method reduces production times....
