Electronics Interconnect Production / Materials Standoffs standoffs unthreaded unthreaded

PEM SMTSK unthreaded standoffs permanently surface-mount on printed circuit boards to enable quick attachment and removal of stacked components without requiring screws or tools. Product’s barrel design allows for a stacked board or panel to be slipped easily into place and then detached by simply sliding the component sideways and lifting it off. Devices serve to attach and space components either horizontally or vertically using minimal hardware and fewer assembly operations. Devices are supplied on tape and reel compatible with existing SMT automated installation equipment and will mount 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.
