Micro self-clinching standoff fasteners from PEM
30 June 2010
New PEM micro self clinching standoff fasteners are suitable for spacing or stacking applications in compact electronic assemblies. PEM Type MSO4 micro self-clinching standoffs are manufactured from 400 Series stainless steel and are engineered with threads as small as M1.0 and in lengths as short as 2mm. They can be installed into sheet metal (including 300 Series stainless steel) as thin as 0.4mm with maximum hardness up to HRB 88 on the Rockwell “B” scale.
The micro standoffs clinch permanently into place by simply pressing them into a properly sized mounting hole using a punch and anvil until the fastener’s head is flush with the sheet. Upon installation, they become a permanent part of an assembly, will not loosen or fall out, and provide strong and reusable load-bearing threads.
