Threaded hex spacers are fasteners that are used to properly position two components in a circuit by creating space in between them. Threaded hex spacers are typically used to space panels and circuit boards. They are particularly useful for connecting items together when a specific distance between them is required.
Threaded hex spacers are used when mounting circuit boards or other components onto a chassis, to provide heat or electrical insulation or to calibrate the height of a switch or sensor.
Threaded hex spacers are available in male/female, male/male and female/female orientations with different body lengths for various applications. They come in a variety of materials including brass, aluminium, stainless steel and nylon.
Threaded hex spacers are integral components in a range of applications, and are used in industrial sectors such as aviation, automotive and electronics. Due to their hexagonal shape, they are sometimes used instead of round spacers to resist twisting.
