PEM® ReelFast® SMTPFLSM™ surfacemount, spring-loaded, captive panel screws from PennEngineering®, Danboro, PA, install permanently on printed circuit boards to provide secure attachment and allow for subsequent access whenever necessary. The all-metal assemblies mount in one piece on boards using the pick-and-place method, and install in the same manner and at the same time as other surface-mount components prior to the automated reflow solder process. They are supplied on tape and reel, and are compatible with existing SMT automated installation equipment.
