Fasteners for thin metal assemblies

Fasteners for thin metal assemblies

Patented PEM R’ANGLE fasteners for thin metal assemblies and printed circuit boards create strong right-angle attachment points to enable tighter design control, reduced hardware counts, and associated production economies. This family of fasteners consists of self-clinching types for permanent installation into metal sheets and ReelFast SMT surface mount versions for permanent installation onto printed circuit board. 

R’ANGLE clinch fasteners for metal can serve as replacements for conventional bent edge tabs, bent center tabs, bent flanges, angle brackets, or tack welds. R’ANGLE surface mount fasteners for PCBs eliminate requirements for angle brackets or threaded blocks.

For metal assemblies Type RAA aluminum clinch fasteners install in aluminum sheets as thin as 1mm and accept thread-forming screws in sizes 4-40, 6-32, 8-32, and M3 and M4. Type RAS steel threaded fasteners install in aluminum or steel sheets as thin as 1mm and are available in thread sizes 4-40, 6-32, 8-32, and M3 and M4. A single mating screw completes the component attachment process. Holding power of the fastener will be unaffected by any tightening or loosening of the screw. 

ReelFast SMT fasteners are designed to mount board to chassis, chassis to board, or component to board.
