Captive panel screw integrated in spring-loaded assembly minimises parts count, enables easy access

Penn Engineering : 29 July, 2013  (New Product)
PEM Types PF50 and PF60 self-clinching captive panel screws keep hardware parts count to a minimum by integrating a captive screw in a spring-loaded assembly to promote easy and efficient handling and installation. Their permanent mounting in thin metal assemblies additionally eliminates any risks associated with loose hardware that could fall out, get lost, or misplaced and potentially cause damage to internal components.

These fasteners ideally suit panels, covers, drawers, racks, and other access points where secure attachment and subsequent access will be necessary.

Their low-profile design minimizes protrusion on front panels to satisfy particular functional and cosmetic requirements. When tightened, the fastener (depending on size) will protrude only 8.64mm from the top of the sheet.

PEM Types PF50 and PF60 captive panel screws feature a Phillips recess as standard to enable their captive screws to be tightened or loosened simply using a Phillips screwdriver (a Torx recess can be specified). Their large heads (knurled or smooth knobs, depending on type) further allow for operation by hand without tools.

These steel fasteners install permanently in aluminum or steel panels as thin as 0.8mm and are offered in multiple screw lengths with thread sizes from #4-40 through 1/4 to 20 and M3 through M6. They can be engineered with MAThread anti cross-thread technology and can be customised with a scratch-proof DuraBlack finish.
