The right fastener not only helps speed production of PC boards, it also affects customer satisfaction. To satisfy component-to-board, board-to-board, and board-to-chassis attachment requirements, these surface mount and broaching fasteners for PC boards install permanently, reduce the need for loose hardware, eliminate secondary operations, and simplify and streamline the production process. The families include ReelFast® surface mount fasteners (threaded or unthreaded nuts and standoffs, captive panel screws, and R’ANGLE® right-angle fasteners), broaching fasteners (internally threaded nuts, threaded or unthreaded standoffs, threaded studs, panel fastener assemblies, and spring-action SNAP-TOP® standoffs), broach/flare-mounted standoffs (offering greater pullout performance), and SpotFast® clinch/broach mount fasteners (for joining metal to boards or plastic panels).
ReelFast fasteners mount on PC boards in the same manner and at the same time as other surface mount components prior to the automated reflow solder process and become another board component. Broaching fasteners install into all types of PC boards and aluminum, acrylic, casting, or polycarbonate components and create a firm, interference-type fit resistant to rotation.
