Helisolid® Threaded Inserts are ideal for repairing or reinforcing threaded holes in soft metals like Aluminium, Magnesium, Cast Iron, Plastic, Wood, etc. Helisolid® Threaded Inserts can be easily installed with standard tools. No special taps or installation tools are needed.
Helisolid® Threaded Inserts are installed into materials with low resistance (such as alloys, plastics, wood and castings) requiring threaded seats with high specifications of resistance and wear. They can also be used for re-tapping worn thread.
Helisolid® Threaded Inserts have a large cutting surface and therefore offers greater resistance to traction. It can be inserted into the finished item, which means higher efficiency for machining centres and elimination of positioning errors or material deposited in the thread. A casting hole or tool with standard tolerances is all that is needed to fit Helisolid® Threaded Inserts. Its fast and easy fitting makes the system extremely cost effective.
Standard size external threads and pitch permit the use of standard drills and taps. Helisolid® Threaded Inserts can be installed with a screwdriver, bolt/jam nut (except IC series), or optional power drive tool.
