Technifast provide a varied range of inserts, which are frequently categorised by the method of insertion.
We manufacture a range of blind self tapping inserts designed to give more strength, particularly where composite materials are used. Our through tapped metric OD inserts (thread reducers / thread repair) are ideal for use on pre-tapped holes which make them suitable for application with most materials and have a standard through-tapped metric internal with metric external threads.
Our portfolio also includes self-tapping inserts, which are a universal type of insert with a high resistance to pull-out, making them ideal for use in plastics, wood and non-ferrous metals. We also provide ultrasonic or heat inserts, which are only for use in thermoplastic materials and are stocked in brass. Our expansion inserts are an ideal solution when a durable thread is required, but the high pull-out resistance of a self-tapping insert is not essential.
