EMX ENTERPRISES Keystone Electronics ultra-low profile, surface mountable threaded inserts include metric and imperial thread options and are specifically designed and packaged for use on printed circuit boards (pcb) in the same manner as other SMT components. Manufactured from steel with a tin plate, the inserts provide an easy method of adding threads to a pcb, while utilizing the same equipment as with other SMT components. This results in a reduction of handling time or damage that may occur while using traditional threading methods for a pcb. SMT inserts are available in metric (M2.5, M3, M4) and Imperial (2-56, 4-40, 6-32) threads with low profile height above the board of only .012”.  Supplied on tape and reel with Kapton tape on top surface for easy pickup.
