Faster Fastener Installation Into Plastics
01 March 2005
Tappex Thread Inserts has introduced a heat inserter that achieves faster
installation of threaded brass inserts into plastic materials, including
thermoplastics, rigid plastics and structural foam. The 400W unit offers
improved temperature control as well as a faster duty cycle, and can
handle headed and non-headed Multiserts from the Tappex range, both male
and stud. In addition, it can install Tappex's range of Microbarb
Multiserts into thin section thermoplastics and thermosets. The
application of heat is not the only way to install Multiserts, which can
also be inserted by cold press fitting or ultrasonics, according to the
type of plastic being used.
