FIXI Group has announced the launch of a new catalogue for self-tapping and special threaded inserts.
Easy to install by manual or machine-operated tools, FIXI self-tapping and special threaded inserts enable high resistance fixings and money-saving features.
FIXI self-tapping inserts are metal bushes with an internal and external thread and can be used in both hard and soft materials. These inserts are designed with a cutting slot or cutting holes that allow the self-tapping feature.
Additionally, these inserts are available in different geometries with specific technical features and are suitable for many applications and fields such as automotive and railway industries, household appliances, medical devices, furniture, composite products and more.
Self-tapping inserts are easy to be installed and ensure a higher pull-out force compared to the one given by pre-tapping the receiving material. Simply drill the right hole diameter in the receiving material and insert the fastener by using a manual or machine-operated installation tool. The use of self-tapping inserts can result in a reduction in thread size required saving material, reducing weight and costs. By using the self-tapping inserts, the base material can be thinner and less expensive too.
Self-tapping inserts ensure a higher pull-out force compared to the one given by pre-tapping the receiving material and are used for repairing damaged threads maintaining the same dimensions of the fixings and resulting in a reinforced thread.
Moreover, the company has introduced a new range of special threaded inserts, the KN-KNH series, that once installed, lock the insert against the rotation due to torsion or vibration. The keys are placed in the proper seats by a punch or a hammer. Available in thin wall and heavy-duty versions. Used to obtain high performance thread on light alloys, steel and cast iron or to repair worn thread.
