TAPPEX® thread inserts made from brass (also available in steel and stainless steel) create precise, robust nut threads in workpieces made from plastic (thermoplastics, thermosets & laminates), GRP light-metal alloys and some notch-sensitive materials. TAPPEX® have been specified for over 50 years by OEM & their supply chains & Plastics Industries globally.

 

Advantages: 

  • Creation of a high strength thread in plastic & wood
  • Wear-free & anti-corrosion
  • Allowing repeated tightening and loosening of bolted fastenings
  • Versatile
  • Various installation opportunities

TAPPEX® THREAD INSERT TYPES:

TRISERT® Thread inserts for screwing in

Thread inserts for screwing in can be used as self-cutting thread inserts in thermoplastics, glass-fibre reinforced plastics (GRP) and thermosets. In pre-moulded and pre-drilled attachment holes the three cutting slots create firm embedding in the base material. TRISERT® guarantees a clean, chip-free inner thread. A particular advantage of the thread inserts without heads is that they can be used on both sides.

 

  • Thread sizes: M2, M2,5, M3, M3,5, M4, M5, M6, M8, M10
  • Model: With and without head
  • Installation: Screw in
  • Material: Brass

 

TRISERT-3® Steel thread inserts for screwing into light alloys and plastics

The TRISERT-3® thread inserts, made from steel or stainless steel, fulfil the highest of requirements, e.g. in medical technology or in the maritime or groceries industry.

  • Thread sizes: M3, M4, M5, M6, M8, M10
  • Model: With small head
  • Installation: Screw in

Material:
  • Steel
  • Stainless steel 303 comparable with 1.4305
  • Stainless steel 316 comparable with 1.4401

FOAMSERT® Thread inserts for screwing into foams and wood

The FOAMSERT® thread inserts (TRISERT® subgroup) are special self-cutting thread inserts that are used in pre-drilled holes in foams and wood.

 

  • Thread sizes: M2, M2,5, M3, M3,5, M4, M5, M6, M8
  • Model: With and without head
  • Installation: Screw in
  • Material: Brass

 

MULTISERT® Thread inserts for pushing in

The MULTISERT® thread inserts with inner threads and patented jag fastening sections are particularly well-suited to being pressed into thermoplastic materials. Installation process: pressing in, ultrasound embedding, heat embedding (local melting of the plastic).

 

  • Thread sizes: M1,6, M2, M2,5, M3, M3,5, M4, M5, M6, M8, M10, M12
  • Model: With and without head

MICROBARB® Thread inserts for pushing in

MICROBARB® thread inserts for pushing in with micro knurling. This subgroup of the MULTISERT® thread inserts is ideal for use in thin-walled materials.

 

  • Thread sizes: M2, M2,5, M3, M4, M5, M6, M8, M10
  • Model: With head
  • Installation: Pressing in
  • Material: Brass

 

HIMOULD® Thread inserts for insert moulding

HIMOULD® thread inserts made from brass for insert moulding are used in moulded and cast components. Thanks to the thin walls, the HIMOULD® can position and mould directly into the moulding edges. Extraordinarily versatile in use for thermoplastic and duroplastic mouldings with through hole and stud hole threads.

 

  • Thread sizes: M2, M2,5, M3, M3,5, M4, M5, M6, M8, M10, M12
