What methods do you use for mounting a PCB?



  • Jayx .

    For aerospace, screws are usually staked with epoxy glue (see for example page 33-35).

    I'd say it's recommended to have a pad around the hole and have it plated, just for extra strenght. Also vias can be added to mounting holes for crush prevention during torque:

    Thanks Jayx, an interesting reference and some goood techniques, some of which I have seen on professional equipment.

    Very interesting regarding the pad around the hole. I have seen vias added in mouting point pads and thought it was to ensure a good earth bond, but now realise they serve a mechanical purpose.

    I'm still learning, thanks fro the advice.
