A spacer is simply defined as an object that is used to create space between two object, often to properly position them. In the world of electronic compenents we typically see spacers used in a variety of situations.
The standard range of Spacers includes both inch and metric specifications in two wall thicknesses and several materials. This provides a very extensive range of sizes particularly if the inch sizes are converted to metric or vice versa. The benefits of using standard Spacers are as follows:
- Reduced cost particularly in low or medium volume applications and no tooling charges
- No excess components at the end of a production run
Spacers are formed into butted tubes from cold rolled strip. The component cost savings are achieved through: highly flexible and efficient production technology.
Typical applications use the Spacers to separate two components in an assembly joined by a screw, rivet or rod passed through the inside diameter of the Spacers. The inside diameters of Spacers are designed for a clearance fit.
