50% less parts per unit.
When a global tech company was challenged with increasing power output for an electric power pack system, a custom-engineered microPEM® TackSert® pin answered the call. Parts per unit were reduced by 50% – driving faster, more efficient installation and improving the cosmetic look of the assembly.
TD™ Cable Tie-Mount Fasteners
A server rack assembly with no differentiation between AC and DC power supplies resulted in the installation of a wrong power supply into a server unit. Future costly errors were eliminated with a custom PEM® TD™ pin – which now acts as a mechanical fail-safe for the server’s power systems.
Smaller profile. Strong attachment.
A new rackmount rail configuration was needed when this global tech company redesigned their processor, resulting in a denser server. To fit the server’s smaller profile, they switched to a custom PEM® SpotFast® fastener, meeting the new rack-mountable product specs.

PEM® Self Clinching Fasteners
PEM® captive fasteners and captive nuts and studs are designed to help keep parts to a minimum and eliminate risks associated with loose hardware that could fall out and damage internal components. The panel fastener assemblies are ideal to attach metal panels to other thin material components in applications where subsequent access is needed.
See what’s possible with PEM® fastening solutions for consumer electronics. From catalog to custom parts, PEM® fasteners use self-clinching, broaching, flaring, and surface-mount technology for strong, reusable, and permanent threads and mounting points in different ductile/non-ductile materials.
Thinner. Lighter. Stronger.
