A process as simple as assembling panels can rapidly become a source of additional costs if not handled smartly. While our speed grip cage nuts have been making the method smarter for several decades, their origin can now be easily identified with the new “RG” & “T” lettering which is now stamped on the cage. A seal of quality to look for!
ARaymond ™ Cage nuts provide the assembly ease of a spring steel fastener with the robust joint of a cold-headed nut. These self-retaining threaded nuts can be assembled without tools in blind locations and don’t require any special operations.
The fact that a cage nut is self-retaining and that it permits blind assembly, together with its ease of assembly lead to another strong advantage: it can be applied at any convenient spot along the assembly line. Assembly can therefore take place on a secondary assembly line instead of the main one or even be outsourced more easily.
This is true from both a logistical point of view and a financial one. By simplifying assembly as well as by cutting tools out of the equation, they have a direct impact on Total Cost of Ownership: significant savings are made on assembly time, logistics or even tool purchasing.
