Gould Fasteners can supply a wide range of electronic hardware from Amatom, a manufacturer known for ingenuity and dependability.
The Amatom product line includes standoffs, insulated washers, captive panel hardware and more. The company is certified to build products to military specifications. The different types of hardware Amatom has experience producing includes:
- spacers and standoffs, including post, swage and anti-rotation types in metric or imperial sizes;
- insulating washers, including flat and shoulder types in nylon, Teflon, fibre and phenolic;
- ferrules and handles, including offset, slanted, locking and spring loaded; and
- captive panel hardware, such as screws, washers and retainers.
Materials Amatom typically works with include brass, aluminum, steel, stainless steel, nylon, Teflon, phenolic, Delrin and PVC.
All of the products Amatom supplies are produced in the company’s advanced manufacturing facility in Cromwell, Conn. The manufacturer has the capability to offer a variety of plating finishes. An important note is that all of Amatom’s brass or steel products with external threading (such as captive screws) are made undersized to accommodate plating. When plating is not required, Amatom can produce hardware on a special order basis.
Amatom has more than 50 years of experience serving industrial companies. Launched in 1957 as a broker for manufacturers, the company expanded by 1962 to become a full-service manufacturer of electronic hardware. In the mid-1960s, company founder Lowell Abeles introduced the Amatom Electronic Hardware Reference Manual. It became known as “the bible of the electronic hardware industry”, and helped cement Amatom’s position as the leading source for industry parts.
