Stainless Steel Wire Thread Inserts - Free Running - P0080

Wire thread inserts (Heli-coil) are used to repair or strengthen threads in metal. Automotion stock a huge range of wire thread inserts - they are mainly made from stainless steel and P0080 are the standard free-running versions. Typically defined by the thread size required and the length of the thread. So for example M8x1D would be a standard M8 coarse pitch insert with a length equal to 1x the thread diameter (so in this case 8mm long). The thread inserts have to have a specially threaded hole to be inserted into and we also offer the relevant thread tap to achieve this. The insertion of the thread insert can also be quite fiddly and we also offer an insertion to make this easier.

Stainless Steel Wire Thread Inserts - Screw Lock - P0081

Wire thread inserts (Heli-coil) are used to repair or strengthen threads in metal. Automotion stock a huge range of wire thread inserts - they are mainly made from stainless steel and P0081 are the less standard screw-lock version. The "screw-lock" refers to the ability of these inserts to "lock" a screw in place to guard against it vibrating loose in particular applications. This is achieved as the middle of each insert has a small portion of deformed thread that grips on to the screw when inserted. Typically defined by the thread size required and the length of the thread. So for example M8x1D would be a standard M8 coarse pitch insert with a length equal to 1x the thread diameter (so in this case 8mm long). The thread inserts have to have a specially threaded hole to be inserted into and we also offer the relevant thread tap to achieve this. The insertion of the thread insert can also be quite fiddly and we also offer an insertion to make this easier.

Thread Inserts - Thinwall - P0084

Thin wall key-locking inserts from Automotion are very robust thread inserts used to repair or strengthen threads. The name "thin wall" relates to the fact that these style generally have a slighty thinner wall that the standard thread inserts - meaning that the external thread diameter for a given internal thread size does not have to be so large. For example being able to insert a strong thread into an aluminium part. These thread inserts are also know as Keenserts, ACME inserts, solid inserts.They are available in both steel and A2 stainless versions. They are easier to install than wire thread inserts, as well as being stronger.
