Our Motion Control division manufactures a range of varied self tapping inserts for metal, but we also can create custom self tapping threaded inserts to suit any application's required specification. The self tapping relates to the ability of the insert to tap its threads as they are inserted; these components are practical solutions against wear in metal

High-Quality Self Tapping Threaded Inserts for Metal

Self tapping threaded inserts are used where a damaged thread has been worn down, but they are also used where new, reliable threads are required within soft materials. Self tapping threaded inserts reinforce these connections and create a high-strength, wear-free screw connection that will reduce vibrations and risk of damage.

Our threaded inserts are effective for creating strong connections for various materials and can be successfully installed into sheet metal, aluminium, steel and even hardwood. Although attempting to create a thread within a soft material will have unpredictable results, self tapping threaded inserts provide much-needed confidence in these connection points.

Custom Designs, Bespoke Manufacture

We can manufacture your required self tapping threaded inserts to meet your necessary specifications, such as our most popular choice; in stainless steel 303 (or equivalent) and with a finish of stainless steel – passivated.
