microPEM Task Fasteners go beyond the ability of traditional micro screws.


Get thinner, lighter, more durable solutions for your micro applications.

While traditional micro screws can serve the general purpose of holding multiple components together, they can be an expensive option when considering the entire cost of your installation. Micro screws can also be a challenge to fit into smaller profiles and may increase the chance of failed performance within your application.

microPEM® solutions like TackPin® and TackSert® fasteners provide a better alternative by going above and beyond the ability of traditional micro screws.

  • Smaller size – ideal for consumer electronics applications
  • Designed for thinner applications and a sleek cosmetic profile
  • Lighter and stronger
  • Fit within a smaller envelope
  • Lower total installed cost
  • Better process control
  • Reduced opportunities for field failures
