TYPE TA™ microPEM® TackPin® Fasteners

New self-clinching microPEM® TackPin® (Type T™) fasteners for compact electronic assemblies enable sheet-to-sheet attachment, replacing costly screw installation in applications where disassembly is not required. TackPin fastener use eliminates typical screw-related issues (including tapping, cross-threading, torque control, and vibration backout) and ultimately promotes quick and easy installation with minimal hardware. TackPin fasteners can provide a good alternative to welds or adhesives.

Features and Benefits

  • Micro sized for fastening within very compact designs.
  • Attaches top sheets as thin as 0.2 mm / .008 in.
  • Clinches into base panels as hard as HRB 45 / HB 84.
  • Interference fit minimizes hole tolerance issues.
  • Tapered tip assists location.
  • Low-profile head provides cosmetic benefits.
  • Replaces screws: eliminating costly tapping, cross threading, torque control, vibration backout and installation time.

Ideal for today’s compact electronics– Laptops

  • Notebooks / Ultrabook™ Devices
  • Tablet Computers
  • Cell/Smart Phones
  • Gaming / Hand Held Devices
  • Ultrabook™ is a trademark of Intel Corporation
