Our Company

Compufab Inc. has manufactured PCB stiffeners for over 33 years and has over 200 long time satisfied customers, worldwide.  Some of our customers include GE, GTE, Siemens, Honeywell, and Northrop Grumman.  Over 1.5 million Compufab printed circuit board stiffeners have been installed on PCB's to date.

The Compufab PC Board stiffener does not lock the customer into specific mounting hole locations on the PCB, such as other stiffeners with fixed fastening solder tabs.  Our PC Board stiffener is universal and allows the customer to use one unique stiffener for multiple PC Board applications with various mounting hole locations.  This makes the Compufab PC Board stiffener a significant cost saving item.

Compufab PC Board stiffeners do not have multiple fixed mounting points that individually must be bent over to fasten to the PC Board.  Compared to solder tab type stiffeners, if all solder tabs are not bent over and fastened properly, the stiffener is ineffective.  By using the Compufab PCB stiffener, the stiffener is connected to the board with structurally sturdy machine screws or rivets.

Compufab will also provide any custom length at no additional charge to the customer.

The Compufab PCB stiffener is an aluminum bar which can function as a bus bar to conduct electrical current across the PCB.  Aluminum has 62% of the current carrying capability of copper, but is much lighter in weight and significantly less expensive.  Screws or rivets fasten the bus bar to the PCB and transfer the current throughout the stiffener from one end of the PCB to the other, as well as┬áproviding stiffening qualities to the PCB.

The Compufab PC Board stiffener can also be used as an extraction handle when mounted on the rear of the PC Board.

The Compufab PCB Stiffener is manufactured in the USA and is RoHS compliant.
