The A-T Series Knurled Threaded Insert is unique in that it can be installed into most any material above .030/,76 mm in thickness. As the A-T Insert is installed, the threaded portion is completely swaged 360° into the sleeve portion and the hole. This permits the A-T Insert to be used with Grade 8/Metric 12.9 mating screws.
The A-T Series Knurled Threaded Insert is installed using lightweight, handheld pneumatic AVK tools that can be located at any position in your product’s assembly sequence. The A-T Insert can be installed either prior to or after finish.
Reduced overall length of the installed A-T Series Insert allows it to be used in limited clearance applications.
Can be used with grade 8/Metric Class 12.9 Screws due to the A-T Series high shear load capability.
