HP Spectre X360 Teardown Summary

The solid, full aluminum body of the HP Spectre X360 provides remarkable cosmetic detail to the notebook’s design and additionally its structure makes it easy to repair. Most of the fasteners used are screws, while the mated female threads are tapped into the main chassis. Most of the screws are used to fix the keyboard with the main chassis.
– Below are certain alternatives featuring several PEM® fasteners that can help achieve better functionality and cost savings:

Alternative PEM® Solutions:

TackPin® Fasteners

The regular screws that hold the keyboard on the main chassis often generate costly tapping, cross-threading; torque control and vibration back out. As an improvement they can be replaced with TackPin fasteners that provide higher performance in terms of pull out strength, less weight, smaller head footprint and of course cost savings.

TackSert® Fasteners

The TackSert fastener can provide a higher performance, cost saving alternative solution to replace the self-tapping screws that go in the plastic cap of the fan.


PEM® Self-Clinching Standoffs

We can provide MSO4 self-clinching standoffs made by different materials and sizes that meet a larger limited application area, with a minimum sheet thickness of 0.3mm.


The two existing SMT standoffs found in the device can be replaced by either the surface mount ReelFast®, MicroPEM® (type SMTSO™) fastener for higher torque-out performance or an SMT SNAP-TOP® Standoff for quicker assembly.
