Wed, 07/16/2008 - 5:08am
Threaded inserts provide strong, reusable metal threads in plastics to allow for subsequent access to assemblies when required. These brass, stainless steel, or aluminum 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, molded-in, and press-in threaded inserts. Products come available in a variety of types and a wide range of unified and metric thread sizes.
