PEM� ReelFast� SMT spacers/nuts

May 09, 2005

New PEM� ReelFast� SMT spacers/nuts can be mounted on printed circuit boards in the same manner and at the same time as other surface mount components prior to the automated reflow solder process.

They add to a growing family of PEM ReelFast SMT products and can be used to space or stack boards or (as nuts) to mount boards or attach components. The fasteners can be installed in boards as thin as .060�/1.53mm.

Among their production and cost advantages, ReelFast SMT spacers/nuts reduce the risk of damage to boards (and resulting scrap) that may occur when improperly installing fasteners with off-line equipment; reduce handling of loose parts to deliver labor savings; and speed assembly by eliminating secondary operations.

Threaded types are available in sizes #4-40 through #8-32 and M3 through M4 and thru-hole (non-threaded) types in sizes .116�, .143�, 3.6mm, and 4.2mm. All types are offered in lengths from .065� to .375� and 2mm to 10mm.

Tape-and-reel packaging conforms with industry standards and preferences for other surface mount components. Each reel carries up to 1,500 parts, depending on fastener size.
