Tech-Sert Information for designers
The Tech-Sert has been designed for post mould installation into thermoplastics using heat or ultrasonics with the opposing knurls and vanes providing high levels of pull out and torque resistance. The symmetrical design means the insert can be installed either way round which allows for automated installation.
Symmetrical design for automated installation
Allows for thin walls in the boss
High pull out and torque resistance
The Tech-Sert is installed using either heat or ultrasonics.
Where heat is used you must ensure that the insert softens, but does not melt the plastic, which helps avoid flash forming around the top of the insert.
Ultrasonic installation works best with low amplitude vibrations and enough power to soften the surrounding plastic.
Care should be taken to avoid excessive downward pressure being applied during installation which can result in the insert being forced into the hole rather than allowing the plastic to soften around it.
