Broaching Standoffs

Broaching fasteners can also offer practical alternatives to “loose” hardware. They install permanently in all types of PC boards, as well as aluminum, acrylic, casting and polycarbonate components. A broaching fastener is a knurled-shank fastening device that can be pressed into a hole to provide a strong threaded or unthreaded attachment point in non-metal materials. Specially formed axial grooves around the shank of the fastener “broach” or cut into the material, creating a firm, interference-type fit resistant to rotation.
