Standard catalog parts and custom-engineered PEM® fastening solutions deliver rugged, reliable performance for a wide range of aerospace electronics and military and defense applications. Our ability to provide quick turn ordering and sample requests, as well as rapid prototyping, speeds up and simplifies product development cycles.

The innovation behind our self clinching, broaching, flaring, and surface-mount technologies (SMT) gives you the power to miniaturize, improve costs, and reduce assembly time.
 
PEM® products are certified to meet several specifications:

Fasteners for PC Board applications

PEM® offers a comprehensive line of fastening solutions for use with PC board applications used in aerospace and defense electronics. These fasteners can satisfy component-to-board, board-to-board, and board-to-chassis attachment needs and deliver optimum product performance.

ReelFast® Surface Mount Fasteners

PEM® surface mount technology (SMT) fasteners mount on
PC boards and use the same soldering processes as the
board’s other electronic components. 

  • Eliminates common productivity and damage issues caused by loose fastening hardware and broaching fasteners
  • Supplied in tape-and-reel packaging for easy pick-and-place assembly
  • Excellent pullout and torque-out forces

Broaching Fasteners

This fastening solution offers a practical alternative to loose hardware, which can increase the risk of poor performance in mission-critical applications. It is a knurled-shank fastening device that can be pressed into a hole to provide a permanent, strong, threaded or unthreaded attachment point in PC boards. 

  • Specially formed axial grooves around the fastener shank “broach” or cut into the material, creating a firm, interference-type fit resistance to rotation

Fasteners For Network Applications

Product performance is only as strong as the components inside. That’s why so many trust PEM® fastening solutions. Our fasteners can be found in just about any network application for aerospace and defense – from servers, switches, and routers to 5G network infrastructure and data centers.
