We probably offer the most extensive range of metal pillars and spacers in the UK. The range includes brass/nickel plate, mild steel/zinc plate and stainless steel pillars & spacers. All of our Spacers and Pillars are RoHS compliant. We also make screw-lock pillars and assemblies. Standard lengths range from 5 - 80mm, threads M2 to M6, with most sizes available from stock. If you require a part outside our standard range we can manufacture non-standard lengths, threads and other materials to your specification.
Tough and resilient, nylon spacers are useful for many applications. They are typically used in electrical and electronic PCB assemblies. They also can be used as bushings, bearing, rollers, and glides. Our spacers can be supplied in clearance or threaded styles and for applications where strength and insulation are required we manufacture with brass threaded inserts. We stock an extensive range in metric and imperial sizes and offer a fast turnaround for non standard sizes. Normally manufactured from Nylon 66 (UL 94 V-0), spacers are also available in CPVC, PTFE and Delrin and are RoHS compliant. We can also supply in other colours or materials by special request.
As suppliers of Richco, Anixter, Microplastics and Skiffy, our plastic hardware range has more than 100,000 products. Combined with over 25 years of experience we are able to provide the complete solutions in terms of design and cost effectiveness. Typical products include circuit board supports, spacers, washers, screws, card guides, rivets, plugs, feet, cable ties & accessories, clips clamps, wire routing accessories, grommets, bushes, glands etc. If there isn’t a standard product available we have a custom service with a full design facility and should be able to meet your specific needs.
Ceramic beads and spacers from Cerabead are typically used for high temperature insulation applications and are available as straight tubes for spacing hot resistors off the PCB or interlocking for flexible wire protection. Made from Steatite ceramic, the beads can withstand temperatures up to 1000ºC.
We offer Plastic and metal die cast boxes from Hammond or Boss to suit just about any possible application. As an additional service we can customise any standard enclosure with holes, cut-outs, paint, screen print or even complete assemblies with PCB, switches, glands etc. For screening RFI/EMI applications we offer a comprehensive standard range from Perancea. Enclosures can be used to screen components, modules or circuits from other sensitive areas on the PCB. Standard styles give the choice between PCB mounting, enclosed, open frame and fingered lids. Again, standard boxes can be customised, or alternatively we can make to suit your own particular requirements.
