Keystone Electronics has introduced a new series of ultra-low profile, surface mountable threaded inserts specifically designed and packaged for use on PCBs in the same manner as other SMT components.

Manufactured from steel with a tin plate, these inserts offer an easy method of adding threads to a PCB while utilizing the same equipment as other SMT components, resulting in a reduction of handling time or damage that may occur while using traditional threading methods for a PCB.

These new threaded SMT inserts are available in 2-56, 4-40 and 6-32 threads with low profile height above the board of only .012”. Supplied on tape and reel with Kapton tape on top surface for easy pickup, they are ideal for use with most vacuum and mechanical pick-and-place assembly systems.
