Designed for compact electronic assemblies, ReelFast microPEM (Type SMTSO) fasteners install on PC boards just like other surface-mount components prior to the automated reflow-solder process. A hex-shaped barrel provides a large solder area and, once installed, the steel fasteners become another board component.The fasteners can serve as nuts or standoffs to space or stack PC boards, mount boards, or attach components.

The fasteners reduce the risk of damage to boards that occurs when conventional fasteners are improperly installed with off-line equipment, minimize the number of loose parts, reduce board handling, and promote quicker assembly by eliminating secondary operations.

The fasteners come in thread sizes as small as M1/#0-80, lengths as short as 1 mm/0.62 in., and can be installed in boards as thin as 0.5 mm/0.020 in. They are packaged on 13-in. recyclable reels measuring 16 mm in width.
