Reinforcement/repair of female threading
Equipment and device structures / General industrial machines
- A keyed female-thread reinforcing insert.
The key mechanically locks the rotation so there is no risk of it falling out.
With the high strength of integrated stainless steel, it is usable for firm fastening or in areas where bolts are frequently fastened and removed.
It is ideal for reinforcing female threading in light metals, castings, resin etc., as well as for repairing damaged female threading.
No special technique is required for insertion.
Mounting is even easier than with coil-type inserts. Use the dedicated tool SKK（SKK）.
- Coil-type inserts and special surface treatment specifications are also available. Please contact our customer service.
