Astoria, NY --- Keystone Electronics has introduced a new series of threaded standoffs specifically designed and packaged for use on PC Boards in the same manner as other surface mount components. Manufactured from steel with a tin plate, these standoffs can be added to the board using the same SMT equipment used to populate the board, reducing scrap and handling time while minimizing damage to a PCB that may occur while using traditional mounting products ensuring easy reflow soldering for reliable solder joints.
Threaded SMT standoffs are available in 2-56, 4-40 and 6-32 threads in lengths from 1/16” up to 3/8” and are 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. Availability is from stock through Keystone’s global distribution network.
