How AVK Pneumatic Tools Install Blind Threaded Inserts

Jun 26, 2023 | Tools

We often get asked, how do AVK Pneumatic Tools install blind threaded inserts? It’s a simple process once you match the specific installation tool with the insert. AVK Industrial Products recommends AVK ARO pneumatic tools to install AVK blind threaded inserts.

The AVK ARO pneumatic tool has an ergonomic design and a rocker-type forward and reverse trigger that is easy, dependable and comfortable to use. The quick-change thread adaption kit assembly allows for an easy removal of the tool’s nose assembly without the need for wrenches.

AVK Pneumatic tools provide the highest RPM for the thread size selected, resulting in optimum installation speed.

How AVK Pneumatic Tools Work

The AVK ARO spin on/torque stall/spin to reverse pneumatic tool install AVK inserts regardless of the material thickness without adjustment. It’s an important feature for in-plant quality control.

Here’s how to use the tools to install blind threaded inserts:

  • The operator quarter turns an AVK threaded insert onto the tool mandrel and places it into the hole in the parent material.
  • The top trigger is depressed and the tool mandrel spins into the insert.
  • The head of the threaded insert is gripped by the knurling at the nose piece preventing it from spinning as the threaded area of the insert “walks” up the mandrel.
  • As this occurs, the AVK insert expands within the hole wall – providing hole fill and forming a secondary flange against the backside of the parent material.
  • The tool continues to torque the insert’s threaded – causing the knurling to bite into the backside edge of the parent material.
  • The tool stalls when it reaches its predetermined stall torque. This occurs even if the parent material varies in thickness. AVK ARO tools need no adjustments in install AVK inserts in variable thickness materials.
  • The operator then presses the lower reverse trigger which causes the mandrel to spin out of the installed insert.
