Press Fit Support Fixtures protect your circuit board assembly while inserting press-fit (compliant leaded) components. Made from either aluminum or ESD-safe composite material, our press-fit fixtures are designed to be both light weight and durable.

Press Fit Fixtures

Key Elements of a Press Fit Support Fixture:

  • Support fixtures are machined from a solid plate of aluminum which maximizes longevity, precision, and durability while minimizing costly hand assembly.
  • Press Fit fixtures prevent damage to the PCB while still allowing enough pressure to seat components.
  • Press Fit fixtures eliminate damaged components and solder joints caused by deflection of the PCB due to poor board support or an operators’ careless scraping of an assembly against the press table.
