A key concept in using Invert-A-Bolt™ fasteners & related products is the idea of tabbing parts. Whether it is a nesting application (to reduce setup time & cycle time) or for individual parts, it is important to know/understand/apply the concepts of tabbing. Please refer to the pictures in which over-the-top, foil, and mid-flange type tabbing is shown/described. For even more understanding, download the provided 3D CAD *.STEP file in which these features are modeled.
