No matter how sophisticated or advanced, electronic components must be attached reliably and securely if they are to deliver optimum performance. We offer several fastener products for use with PC boards to satisfy component-to-board, board-to-board, and board-to-chassis attachment needs.

Concerns about potential damage to PC boards due to improper secondary installation operations have prompted our latest innovative solution, Reel Fast surface mount fasteners. These 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. The fasteners simply become another board component. The fasteners are provided on tape and reel compatible with existing SMT automated installation equipment. The benefits of using Reel Fast SMT fasteners are: faster assembly; reduced scrap; reduced handling; and reduced risk of board damage that may occur when fasteners are improperly installed with off-line equipment.

Broaching fasteners can also offer practical alternatives to “loose” hardware. They install permanently in all types of PC boards, as well as aluminum, acrylic, casting and polycarbonate components. A broaching fastener is a knurled-shank fastening device that can be pressed into a hole to provide a strong threaded or unthreaded attachment point in non-metal materials. Specially formed axial grooves around the shank of the fastener “broach” or cut into the material, creating a firm, interference-type fit resistant to rotation. Broach/flare-mount standoffs offer greater pullout performance.
