Heli-Coil inserts offer a convenient and reliable way to strengthen and protect tapped threads in any material. This solution enables the use of softer, lightweight materials such as aluminum in applications where steel-like thread performance is needed. Threaded inserts and a variety of related Heli-Coil products are available from Gould Fasteners.
Like all of the products Gould Fasteners offers, customers can have confidence in the manufacturing behind Heli-Coil inserts. The Mississauga, Ont.-based distributor has a reputation for only working with manufacturers who are dedicated to quality assurance.
“At Gould Fasteners, all of our suppliers must adhere to strict standards of excellence,” the company states on its website. “We simply want the best for our customers.”
Heli-Coil inserts are screw thread coils that are precision formed using stainless steel wire with a diamond-shaped cross section. Once they have been installed in Heli-Coil tapped holes, the inserts provide permanent threading with conventional 60 degree internal screw threads, allowing them to accommodate any standard screw or bolt.
Heli-Coil inserts were originally developed in the 1930s to accommodate the needs of the aircraft industry. They were later used as original equipment on the Boeing 747 and every space shuttle. Today, some common applications for Heli-Coil threaded inserts include automotive, communication, aerospace and defence. All HeliCoil products are ISO certified and built to military standards.
Additional Heli-Coil products
In addition to inserts, related Heli-Coil tooling is available, such as STI taps, power or hand tools for installation, gauges, and tang break-off tools.
Heli-Coil brand products are manufactured by Stanley Engineered Fastening, a company that has been a leader in threaded fastening technology since 1963. The company is committed to providing solutions that offer high value to the end-user.
