SUBJECT: Bolt Products Inc to distribute new Tinnerman uMax Wide Panel Speed Nut

Monday, January 21, 2008

Bolt Products an authorized distributor for Tinnerman, is helping to promote and distribute the new uMax Speed nuts. Tinnerman specially designed this new wide panel speed nut  as a huge improvement to standard speed  nuts.

The innovative extension of the Tinnerman U-Nut product line accommodates a wide range of panel thickness from 0.5 mm to 4.0 mm. A single uMAX Wide Panel SPEEDNUT can replace as many as 2 to 3 standard u-nuts. The thread engaging member of the uMAX SPEEDNUT is uniquely designed to remain perpendicular to the bolt. This feature reduces strip-outs, increases joint integrity, and prevents panel damage caused by misalignment. The uMAX SPEEDNUT is hinged at two points, reducing insertion efforts.  Tapped barrel versions of the parts are now available in metric thread sizes of M5 x .8, M6 x 1.0, and M8 x 1.25. Tinnerman also offers a single thread engaging uMAX SPEEDNUT for “lighter duty” applications.

The uMAX Wide Panel SPEEDNUT are now available in single and multi threaded engaging types. In addition to part number reduction, the uMAX Wide Panel family offers some performance improvements over existing products. Benefits and specifications are listed below. Please contact Bolt Products if you have any questions regarding the uMAX Wide Panel family of parts. Samples, information and technical support are available from Bolt Products
