Original Press Release:
PEM® Broaching Fasteners Ideal for Use In or With Printed Circuit Boards
PEM® broaching fasteners are designed for use in or with printed circuit (PC) boards and can satisfy component-to-board, board-to-board, and board-to-chassis production-fastening needs using less attachment hardware.
PEM broaching fasteners can be utilized with all types of PC boards, as well as with acrylic and polycarbonate components. Available in a wide range of sizes and finishes, these fasteners install simply, quickly, and permanently for secure and reliable attachment. Their use eliminates the need for washers, lock washers, nuts, and other excess hardware.
The PEM family of broaching fasteners includes broaching nuts with permanent threads for board mounting or component attachment; threaded or unthreaded standoffs for stacking or spacing and flare-mounted standoffs for greater pullout performance; threaded studs for use as solderable connectors or as permanently mounted mechanical fasteners with external threads; all-metal standoffs featuring a spring action to hold a PC board securely without screws or threaded hardware; and one-piece board-mount screw assemblies with captive screws for easy mounting and removal of PC boards.
