More About Our Press-fit (or Press-in) Inserts

The process of press-fitting allows inserts to be installed without the use of heat or ultrasonics. They are press-fit into a drilled or molded hole after the molding process has been completed. This is accomplished by placing the insert into the appropriate hole size and driving it into place with a simple press.

The “barbed” configuration of these inserts displaces the plastic as it travels into the hole. The plastic then springs back into the grooves between barbs, providing pullout resistance.
