Standoffs for Printed Circuit Boards

Enable quick attachment and removal of stacked components without using screws.

Pem Smtsk Standoffs

PEM SMTSK unthreaded standoffs from PennEngineering permanently surface mount on printed circuit boards to enable quick attachment and removal of stacked components without requiring screws or tools.

Their unique 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.

These standoffs will effectively serve to attach and space components either horizontally or vertically using minimal hardware and fewer assembly operations.

The standoffs 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.

These hardware solutions:

  • Reduce handling issues

  • Curb risks of board damage

  • Limit costly scrap

  • Streamline production

  • Promote β€œscrewless” designs of subassemblies

PEM SMTSK standoffs are manufactured from carbon steel and available in unified lengths .125”, 250,” and .375” and in metric lengths 3mm, 4mm, 6mm, 8mm, and 10mm.
