Shop threaded metal inserts by application type, including aluminum, non-magnetic, plastics, thermoplastics, and wood.
ABS plastic is a type of thermosplastic known for its light weight and electrical insulation ability, thought superior to other plastics due to its hardness, toughness, and gloss.
Pressed-in threaded fasteners provide permanent threads in aluminum and other soft metals. Aluminum applications call for a knurled body to lock tightly into the hosting material. We provide FREE samples for our patent designed threaded inserts for metal.
Threaded inserts for ceramics are commonly used in two ways - molded-in and pressed-in applications. In molded-in applications, the fasteners are introduced during the production process and the ceramic material is molded and hardened around the metal insert. Alternatively, the metal inserts can be pressed into a pre-drilled hole in the hardened ceramic material, allowing for flexibility in installation methods.
Various standardized epoxied-in non-magnetic threaded insert products. Choose between molded-in, pressed-in, and molded-in Inserts with shoulder/chamfer.
Threaded inserts for fiberglass applications call for a non-corrosive fastener that will have a snug fit, but not over tightened. Prototype to production. free samples!
Metal tube applications require an insert that provides permanent thread and the ability to lock tightly into place, while having the capability to swage to the tubing.
Particleboard is a denser, lighter, and weaker material than traditional wood, calling for an insert that will be reliable and lock securely into the material. Inserts with long outer threads give strong holding power in weaker materials like particleboard.
Our threaded inserts for plastic are a versatile solution suitable for molded-in or pressed-in applications. The plastic threaded insert is either inserted into the product at the time of manufacturing as the plastic molds and hardens around it or pressed into a hole in the hardened, cool plastic, creating a secure and long-lasting fit. These plastic inserts are available in a range of sizes and designs to meet the needs of various applications and can improve the strength and durability of plastic products.
Rubber applications typically consist of use of molded-in inserts. After a metal insert is placed into the cavity of a mold, heated rubber is injected, and encases and hardens around the insert. Pressed-in installation is also possible, where a pressed-in threaded insert is inserted into a hole in the cool rubber.
Pressed-in inserts provide permanent thread in soft metals. Soft metal applications call for knurled body to lock tightly into the hosting material.
Thermoset plastics have a cross linked molecular structure, permanently shaped in the manufacturing process. This type of material generally responds best to molded-in or pressed-in inserts.
