Reducing component count and assembly time

Stainless steel SEMS screws manufactured by Specialty Fasteners and Components are an ideal way to reduce component count, assembly time and prevent the chance of loose components falling into complicated electronic assemblies.

The flat washer and lock washer (if required) are retained in the assembly by a rolled thread, thus making one unit from two or three components.

The components are available in imperial and metric sizes with a variety of head styles and lengths.

The word SEMS is derived from 'pre-asSEMbled' washers and screws with the S being added as they are bought in quantity. For more information visit their website www.specialty-fasteners.co.ukor click on the info button below.
