|Impossible to lose the screw
||Screw is attached to the retainer, which is itself attached to the workpiece after installation
||No risk of losing the screw in a sensitive environment (electrical, power supply, etc.)
|High-resistance assembly guaranteed
||See values in technical data sheets
||Guarantee of perfect assembly
|No special preparation of the workpiece is necessary
||Rough holes, non-chamfered and non-deburred
||No costs related to the preparation of the workpiece
|Guarantee of positioning and coaxiality of the screw after installation
||The shank of the retainer self-centres the component on installation
The retainer receiving the screw allows clearance, which facilitates final assembly
|Perfect assembly is assured, in terms of both functional and aesthetic aspects
|Simplification of the production flow and process
||Can be used on painted workpieces
No polishing on a stainless steel workpiece
|Simplification of the process: pre-painted workpieces can be used
|Elimination of retapping to remove excess paint
||No need to paint after installation
||No visible welds nor burning of the material
||Completely aesthetic yet without polishing costs or assembly deterioration (burns and deformations)
|Can be used on all metals
||The screw is installed without any heating of the material
||Process savings - whatever the workpiece material
|Rapidity and ease of setting captive screws
||CAPTIFIX™ solutions are installed to workpieces using a simple press.
In its IMC version, CAPTIFIX™ enables manual snap-on assembly, without tools.
|Maximum reduction in assembly costs.
|Assembly of a panel fitted with several anchorage points on its frame, facilitated by the use of IMC-type captive components.
||In the IMC version, the CAPTIFIX™ allow significant freedom in positioning when installed to a workpiece equipped with lights, allowing absolute coaxiality between the fastener and the threaded elements of the frame. These captive elements can also be integrated to cylindrical holes, with a diameter allowing for clearance.
||Fastener position, in relation to the threaded elements of the frame during the assembly phase, is 100% guaranteed.
Faster assembly time for sheet metal work.
