These inserts are press-fit into a drilled or molded hole after the molding process has been completed.

The process of press-fitting allows inserts to be installed without the use of heat or ultrasonics. 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.

Fast Facts:

  • Designed to be press-fit into a drilled or molded hole, after the molding process.
  • Superior torsional and pullout properties.
  • For softer materials. Ideal for use with plastic.
  • Can be placed using a simple press.
