PEM® surface mounted standoffs that eliminate the need for attaching screws

PEM® SMTSS™ fasteners feature a spring action to hold a P.C. Board securely without screw or threaded hardware, allowing for quick assembly.
Mount on P.C. Boards in the same manner and at the same time as other surface mount components prior to the automated reflow solder process.
Alleviated concerns about potential damage to P.C. Boards due to improper secondary installation operations.
Fasteners provided on tape and reel compatible with existing SMT automated installation equipment.
Benefits include reduced scrap, reduced handling and reduced risk of board damage.
