Abstract

Disclosed is a bracket with screw tapping to enable a reflow process on a Printed Circuit Board (PCB). As shown in the Figure, the bracket has four legs (b) and two pegs (c) to be fixed and soldered to the PCB rigidly ((1), (2)). There is no projection on the opposite surface of this part, so that it can be applied to the soldering process of a reflow component. This bracket can be mounted on a PCB automatically with a tapping package. This height (A) may be changed as required.

Tapping Bracket (Reflow Type)

      Disclosed is a bracket with screw tapping to enable a reflow
process on a Printed Circuit Board (PCB).  As shown in the Figure,
the bracket has four legs (b) and two pegs (c) to be fixed and
soldered to  the PCB rigidly ((1), (2)).  There is no projection on
the opposite surface of this part, so that it can be applied to the
soldering process of a reflow component.  This bracket can be mounted
on a PCB automatically with a tapping package.  This height (A) may
be changed as  required.

      This invention makes it much easier and more reliable to
provide a screw tapping on the PCB than the other existing methods,
such as a staking metal stud.  This mechanism can be applied to all
electrical devices that contain a PCB with surface mounted
components.
