PennEngineering® (Danboro, PA, USA) has entered into a license agreement with EJOT® GmbH & Co. KG, Industrial Fastener Division (Bad Laasphe, Germany) covering EJOT® PT® and Delta PT® screws for plastic applications. The agreement allows PennEngineering to use EJOT® technical information, patent rights, and trademarks in connection with the manufacture and sale of PT® and Delta PT® screw products.
New PEM® ReelFast® surface mount spring-loaded captive panel screws (Type SMTPFLSM™) from PennEngineering® install precisely and permanently where designed on printed circuit boards to provide secure attachment and allow for subsequent access whenever necessary. These all-metal captive screw assemblies mount in one piece on boards using the pick-and-place method and will install in the same manner and at the same time as other surface mount components prior to the automated reflow solder process. The captive screw technology eliminates issues and risks associated with the handling, installing, and potential loosening of standard screws and can be easily actuated with the combination Torx®/slot drive.
