Stable fastening solution with a high holding force
Würth Elektronik has unveiled a space-saving replacement for PCB-mounted, bonded or snapped cable holders intended to accommodate cable ties.
The automatically mountable and solderable holder is dubbed the WA-SMCH (Surface Mounted Cable Holder). Made of tin-plated phosphor bronze, it is said to offer a very stable fastening solution with a holding force up to 370 N. Cables or cable ties can be routed lengthwise or crosswise through the 10 × 6 × 2 mm component.
Subsequent manual placement of individual components in surface-mounted manufactured assemblies requires additional processes and thus generates error risks and additional costs. “WA-SMCH is surface-mounted and thus eliminates additional processes and costs in production,” states Würth Elektronik.
