PEM R’ANGLE fasteners provide strong right angle attachment points in sheet metal and PC boards. RAA and RAS fasteners for metal are simply pressed into a rectangular mounting hole in the panel. RAS fasteners provide metric or unified threads in M3 and M4 or 4-40, 6-2 and 8-32 thread sizes.
RAA fasteners come with a plain bore suitable for M3 and M4 or 4-40, 6-32 and 8-32 self tapping or thread forming screws.
Both RAS and RAA fasteners make design less complicated and can replace bent angle tabs, bent flanges, separate angle brackets, tack welds and generally reduce the loose hardware which needs to be used on an assembly. In addition the right angle joints created tend to be stronger, more rigid and accurate than other methods.
SMTRA fasteners offer many of the same benefits of their RAS counterparts, except they are designed for use on PC boards and are installed using standard tape and reel installation equipment. Thread size run from M2 to M4 in metric and 2-56 to 8-32 in unified sizes.
SMTRA fasteners reduce assembly time significantly and eliminate waste and quality issues resulting from offline assembly methods. The footprint of SMTRA fasteners is also much reduced when compared to other techniques such as separate mounting brackets.
SMTRA parts come supplied on industry standard tape and reel packaging.
