RAF Electronic Hardware is the nation's leading supplier of electronic hardware, including standoffs, spacers, handles and ferrules, male/female standoffs, captive screws, retainers, jackscrews, precision shoulder screws, thumbscrews, thumbnuts, swage standoffs, insulating washers, anti-rotation swage standoffs, swaging tools, plastic circuit board supports, NAS 1829 & 1831 standoffs, and NAS 42, 43, and 61 spacers.

Since 1975, RAF has offered a wide range of products in both American standard and metric dimensions for immediate delivery. Most catalog items are off-the-shelf and available for same-day shipment. RAF can also supply any customized products with small minimum orders and competitive pricing. The in-house plating facility also enables them to provide plated parts with quick turnaround and controlled consistency.

With the acquisition of Futuristics Components in 2014, RAF expanded its manufacturing capabilities to include CNC machined parts, as well as strengthening its primary and secondary capabilities in: crimping, plating, slotting, knurling, assembly, threading, heat treating, and zone annealing. The development of an internal Quick Turn Program allows RAF to produce custom turned contacts with very short lead times.
