"When our design requirements called for a denser server in a smaller profile, we had to completely change the configuration for its rackmount rails. PennEngineering® worked with us to create a custom fastening solution that was low profile, but still had a strong attachment point. This custom PEM® SpotFast® fastener was so successful that it was used for the remainder of this server's lifecycle, to the tune of 1.5 million fasteners over time.
