Nokia 6 Teardown Summary

Nokia 6 has a 5.5-inch FHD IPS display with a polarizer film covered with 2.5D Gorilla Glass for protection. The smartphone comes in a black 6000 series aluminum uni-body chassis with flat edges that are milled using a CNC machine from a single brick of aluminum alloy. Various screws in the assembly can be replaced with TackPins, TackSerts, Snap in Fasteners, or microPEM® screws.
Below are certain alternatives featuring several PEM® fasteners that can help achieve better functionality and cost savings.

MicroPEM® Screws

PennEngineering® can provide all off these screws with different design solutions.
PEM has license with TORX ®, TORX PLUS®, MICROSTIX® driver and self-tapping thread
patent as like TAPTITE, FASTITE, REMFORM and REMFORM F.

TackSert® Pin

The screws that are used to hold the PC board, earphone jack and power charge
on the main body of the device, can be replaced by TackSert® pins. The TackSert® pins
are a permanent solution but the press-in installation is significantly quicker than the typical screw assembly.

PEM® microClip™ Fasteners

The micro Clip™ Fastener can replace a threaded hole and screw, thus eliminating the need for loose
hardware, while providing a permanent press in solution with clamp load.
The micro Clip™ Fastener also eliminates the need for tapped holes, or mating clinch hardware.

MSIA™ microPEM® Inserts For Plastic

MicroPEM® thru-threaded brass inserts for plastics introduce ideal fastener solutions to attach
components in compact electronic assemblies. The brass bush can be replaced by MSIB series microPEM®
inserts without hole threaded. PennEngineering® can provide different sizes and types of MSIA to meet the
application requirement. The new MSIA series offer light weight, lead-free alternative.

MSO4™ Self-Clinching microPEM® Standoffs Fasteners

The molded-in nuts can be replaced by MSO4 microPEM® self-clinching standoffs. PennEngineering®
can provide the MSO4 standoffs in different sizes and types to meet the application requirement.

SMTSO™ Surface Mount microPEM® Nut

The M1 SMT micro nut can be replaced by SMTSO microPEM® surface mount fasteners.
PennEngineering® can provide the SMTSOs with different sizes and types to meet the application requirement.
