Electronic Heat Sink Captive Screws
September 1, 2005
Captive screws designed specifically for electronic heat sink applications provide consistent, high-load mechanical fastening that maximizes thermal conductivity regardless of chip thermal expansion, shock and vibration. Series 5T is intended for thermal and mechanical engineers involved in printed circuit board applications. The screws provide a preload up to a maximum of 5 lb/ft (22 N) per screw to maximize surface contact and thermal conductivity throughout the range of chip expansion.
