Helicoil thread inserts
We supply helicoil thread inserts ranging in length from 0.086 to 21.9 mm. They have outside diameters between 0.095 and 2.274 mm. They are available in thread sizes ranging from 1/2-13 to 9/16-18. The types inserts we can supply include tanged, tangless, 8-pitch, pipe thread, self-tapping, spark plug, oversize and twinsert. They are available in materials such as 304 stainless steel, Inconel, Phosphor bronze, titanium and carbon steel. We offer both free running and screw lock styles.
Tangless inserts provide easy installation, adjustment and removal. With these inserts, there is no need for tang break off so you don't have to worry about retrieving or losing them. There's no added stress applied to the parent material because they eliminate the need for staking, swaging or keying in place.
Pipe thread inserts are larger than the tapped hole prior to installation. Once installed, the outward force keeps the threading permanently in place, and provides a strong, leak proof joint.
Spark plug inserts feature a serrated top coil that is staked into the parent material. As a result, they can easily withstand the high performance and temperature requirements for spark plug ports.
Oversize inserts and twinserts are used to correct tapped holes that have been stripped, or mistakenly tapped with the wrong diameter. To achieve the correction, oversize inserts have a wire cross section that's larger than normal, while twinserts are designed in be installed inside another insert.
We have experience serving a wide range of clients. The threaded inserts we provide are used in many industries including construction, automotive, aerospace, electronics, transportation, telecommunications and more.
