MEMFAST Self Tapping Threaded Inserts are single piece, precision turned parts with both external and internal metric threads and are manufactured from mild steel 230M07-PB. These inserts allow permanent threads to be produced in a wide range of components and materials.
Features & Benefits include:
Tough and durable due to their substantial wall thickness, their use can reduce the thread size required due to the insert's large effective shear surface. This could save material as well as reduce cost and weight.
They eliminate the need for close tolerance holes required for tapping into the base material, damaged tools and low productivity - they need no special installation tool nor the time consuming process associated with installing a wire thread insert. Holes do not need to be separately tapped as the groove will cut its own thread so long as the correct diameter tolerances for the material and the insert are adhered to.
