Gould Fasteners can supply a wide variety of circuit board hardware from Essentra Components (previously known as Richco). Though the company has a new name, it still offers the same great products, including locking board supports, wire saddles, and vertical card guides and pullers. These products feature easy installation and secure holding.
Gould Fasteners only works with the industry's most renowned manufacturers, so customers can have confidence in the products it carries. It’s no surprise then that it offers products from Essentra, a company that has earned a reputation for product quality and design innovation.
Essentra Components offers products designed for specific applications in a range of industries, including computer, electronics, consumer goods, telecom/datacom and contract manufacturing. The selection of PCB and electronics hardware available includes supports, switches, card guides, fan hardware, screw grommets, LED hardware, and fuse covers and insulators.
For instance, quick fit fuse covers are available for use on fuse clips and blocks mounted to PC boards. To ensure a snug fit, these covers are made from flexible PVC. They are also transparent to make visual inspection easy, and they are UL approved to E120063.
Another expertly designed solution from Essentra is its line of adhesive base supports. These board supports come with a double-sided adhesive tape. They are available in snap-locking types that make installation quick. They can also be supplied in low profile varieties for applications where space-saving capability is desired.
The company’s selection also includes wire and cable management products such as bushings, clips, clamps, conduit, ties, insulators and heat shrink tubing.
Richco, now Essentra Components, was founded in 1954 and began with a manufacturing facility converted from a small candy store. From the beginning, the company has focused on creating plastic parts of the finest quality, at competitive prices, with prompt delivery. The company began designing innovative solutions and the business quickly took off. Since then, the manufacturer's product catalogue has continuously expanded with new innovations, most of which were developed in direct response to specific design needs of engineers in the field.
