Type SKS-R™ fasteners are designed so that two sheets can be quickly joined flat against each other. Typically, several fasteners are used with one standard PEM® threaded F™ flush nut which accepts a screw to secure the sheets against any unwanted movement.
New PEM® SMTSS™ ReelFast® SNAP-TOP® standoff fasteners from Penn Engineering® hold printed circuit boards securely in assemblies without the need for additional mating screws or other loose threaded hardware to complete attachment
New PEM® S-RT free-running lock-nuts allow the mating screw to be spun on freely until a until clamp load is induced. Unlike other thread locking systems the screw runs freely until the final clamp load is reached and provides superior resistance to vibration.
PEM® SMTPFLSM® Reelfast® panel fasteners come pre-assembled and supplied on tape and reel. This means that the panel fastener can be fitted in one operation with no offline secondary operations making it the fastest way to assemble panel fasteners to a PCB.
New PEM® TK™TackSert® pins from Penn Engineering® introduces an ideal alternative to screws for attaching thin panels in assemblies. They can securely attach panels of any material to base panels manufactured from commonly used materials not suited to self-clinching techniques
The PEM® heat sink mounting system introduces an engineered solution to securely attach heat sinks to circuit boards while providing a firm and constant contact to the chip component for optimum heat dissipation. The system additionally integrates a unique audible "click" feature to prevent over tightening during installation, accommodates slight expansion and contraction of joint components without causing stress or damage to delicate and expensive circuitry, and allows for removal of the heat sink if necessary.
PEM type MPP, self-clinching micro standoffs are ideal for today's compact electronic assemblies. Simply pressed into a correctly sized mounting hole, these micro pins clinch permanently into place. Micro standoffs can be installed into a variety of sheet materials up to HRB 92/HB 195 in hardness and offer excellent corrosion resistance.
New Micro-PEM® fasteners are now available supplied on tape and reel. With Thread sizes down to M1 the PEM® SMT range is now suitable for use attaching hardware components on even the smallest applications.
Type SCB® Spinning Clinch Bolt is a one piece fastener that installs by simply pressing it into a properly sized hole. The controlled clinching action permanently captivates the screw in the panel yet still leaves it to spin freely in the sheet. This allows quick attachment of mating hardware.
SCN™ Spinning Clinch Nuts are permanently captive, free spinning one-piece flanged hex nut that are installed into a round punched holes. SCN clinch nuts are made from hardened carbon steel and allow installation into sheet materials as thin as 1.5mm /.060”: New- Spinning clinch nut is now available with RT™ self locking technology
New PEM® SFN® spinning flare nuts are designed to rotate freely when permanently captivated in thin metal sheets for quick attachment to mating hardware and reduced need for loose fasteners such as flange nuts. When paired with a self-clinching stud or other fixed externally threaded hardware, all loose hardware can be eliminated from an application to help streamline assembly time and decrease production costs.
The SpotFast SFW self-clinching fastener allows pivoting of two sheets of metal. A wave washer provides the consistent torsion to allow repeatable hinging. The fastener installs smooth with the top sheet, and flush or sub-flush with the bottom sheet.
PEM Type SGPC swaging collar studs can install into most panel materials, provide strong torque-out resistance and are suitable for close centerline-to-edge applications. They can also be installed into multiple layers of panels as long as the total thickness does not exceed the recommended maximum.
