The proliferation of computers, peripherals, cell phones and other electronic devices has resulted in an increased emphasis on assembly related cost-savings of these products. Contaminants produced by chips and dust generated by conventional drilling and tapping operations result in time-consuming and expensive cleaning procedures.
TAPTITE®and REMFORM® fasteners are currently being used in over 25 small diameter applications in the thin sheet metal of Hewlett Packard chassis and molded plastic components.
TAPTITE® and REMFORM® fasteners form their own threads and thereby eliminate any contaminants produced by any drilling and tapping operations. TAPTITE® and REMFORM® fasteners also eliminate cross-threading repairs and damaged components, saving significant costs and production time.
