Press nuts are used wherever a high degree of joint stability is required in thin-walled sheet metal or plastic parts. They are a very good alternative to nuts that are welded, brazed or welded to the component. Press nut that can obtain a high mounting strength thanks to the knurled portion under the neck.
Portion of the nut under the neck has a unique shape (knurled, grooved) and so a high mounting strength can be obtained.
Post-processing such as rust-proof processing, sputtering treatment for weld-on nuts, etc., not required.

Broaching-type fasteners can be used on printed circuit boards as well as on many other types of brittle materials. They are often used on materials composed of glass laminate or epoxy bases. They are also designed for use on materials that are too thin to support adequate threading.
Broaching nuts, also known as PCB nuts due to being commonly applied in printed circuit boards, are designed with a knurled shank that can be pressed into the drilled hole. The shank grips the board with an interference fit by broaching its way into the panel as it is squeezed into the holes.
Installation is simple, prepare the specified hole and using a flat punch and appropriate anvil, apply a parallel squeezing force to press the part into the hole. When installing in printed circuit board, broaching nuts are suitable for use in non-plated holes only.
