Blind threaded steel inserts with straight shank style

28 July 2010

The PEM family of Atlas Plus Tite blind threaded steel inserts has been expanded with a new version that features a straight shank design. This pre-bulbed insert offers superior pullout resistance when installed permanently in plastics or thin sheet metal. All types provide reliable and reusable threads for blind attachment applications, including tubing and extrusions, where only one side is accessible for fastener installation and component assembly. A single mating screw completes the final attachment process.

Atlas Plus Tite inserts can install permanently into single, variable, or multiple-thickness materials as thin as 0.50mm. The straight shank design will accommodate a smaller mounting hole and the pre-bulbed inserts will require less installation load.

Both install from the accessible front side of a component. Installation can be accomplished anywhere and at any stage in the shop or field using either a spin-pull tool or spin-spin tool, depending on insert type. A shoulder on both styles serves as a self-locating feature.

The inserts are available with internal formed threads in sizes #10-32 through 3/8-16 and M6 through M10.  Threads are compatible with unified grade 5 or metric class 9.8 screws.  All insert surfaces are plated for corrosion-resistance.
