Helisolid Self Tapping Threaded Inserts are Self Tapping and Self Locking Inserts; specially designed to cut their own threads as they are being driven into a drilled hole. The thread cutting action is performed by the cutting slots or holes on the insert.
Helisolid Self Tapping Threaded Inserts are ideal for thread reinforcement, especially when the mating stud or bolt will be removed frequently. They provide strong, permanent steel threads in a weaker parent material — ferrous, non-ferrous, or non-metallic. Helisolid Self Tapping Threaded Inserts are also well suited for quick repair of stripped, damaged, or worn threads.
The installation of Helisolid Self Tapping Threaded Inserts is simple and quick, using only one tool, which lowers installation cost. By tapping its own thread, the self tapping insert eliminates the need for base material to have pre-tapping.
Unlike coil inserts, which require a special tap and installation tool, Helisolid Self Tapping Threaded Inserts for metal are installed using standard tools. Simply drill the appropriately sized hole with a standard drill and turn in the Helisolid Self Tapping Threaded Inserts like an ordinary fastener with a Helisolid installation tool.
