SI® threaded inserts provide strong, reusable metal threads in plastics to enable subsequent access to assemblies when required. These brass, stainless steel, or aluminum threaded inserts serve as practical alternatives to permanent joining methods, such as adhesives or rivets. Components can be removed and re-attached quickly and easily utilizing mating hardware. The product line includes ultrasonic/heat staking threaded inserts installed ultrasonically or with a thermal press; molded-in threaded inserts installed during the molding process; press-in threaded inserts installed by pressing them into pre-molded or drilled holes; and patented DeltaForm brass threaded inserts installed by cold-press, ultrasonic, or heat-stake methods.
