Corp.'s new series of self-retaining, T-1 LED mounting spacers are designed
for uniform and perpendicular LED positioning and can reducing assembly costs. The
self-aligning LED spacers feature internal retention "teeth" that secure spacers onto LED leads, prior to assembly on PCB's.
The design also eliminates the possibility of LED lead shorting by separating
and retaining component leads while inserting into a PCB. No special tools are
required to preassemble LED's to spacers. The new spacers feature 0.020 inch (0.5 mm) legs incorporated into
the molded Nylon 6/6 structure to serve the dual purpose of heat dissipation
and easy post-solder cleaning. Overall height
of the spacers range from 0.120 to 0.925 inch (3.0 to 23.5 mm). Keystone also has "Universal" and
"Self-aligning" LED spacer mounts for Tri-lead and Bi-lead T-1 and T-1 3/4
The new composites manufacturing innovation center is intended to be a source of grand challenges for industry, like the kind that got us to the moon under JFK. These aren't the words its new CEO Craig Blue used, but that's the idea and the vision behind the Institute for Advanced Composites Manufacturing Innovation (IACMI).
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
