Insertion Force of a Snap-Fit Connector
Snap-fit connectors are one of the oldest and most common fastener devices. They have the advantages of speed of connection/disconnection over other fastening methods, with no loose parts that could be misplaced. However, their proper operation requires precise design to ensure that the amount of force it takes to fasten or separate the connector, and the direction of application of that force, is optimal for the desired application. Join us for this 30-minute webinar to see the how insertion force of a snap-fit connector can be quickly calculated using simulation from Ansys. Learn how to determine what type of snap-fit to use, the required insertion force for operation and the amount of stress that various parts of the connector will experience.
