Threaded Inserts For Aerospace, Automotive, And Commercial Use
Threaded inserts are fasteners that allow an internal or external threaded component to be installed in or through an installation surface. They are installed using a special tool with a threaded stud. As the stud engages and the threads of the insert pulls upward, a portion of the body of the insert deforms and expands against the reverse side of the installation material. This action contributes to a secure, permanent joint. As a type of blind rivet, or blind threaded insert, these fasteners can be easily installed when only one side of a structure is accessible. They can also be used to repair damaged threads in existing threaded parts.
Our inventory includes a comprehensive range of threaded inserts that can be installed in a variety of materials, from metal and composites, to plastics and even ceramics. They are used in many applications as aerospace threaded inserts, automotive threaded inserts and more. They can be found in all manner of equipment and hardware, such as leg levelers, electronic cases, air conditioning and refrigeration units, luggage racks in automobiles, on motorcycles, RVs, boats, and more.
