Inserting sheet metal fastenings using our Haeger inserter machine
We are inserting sheet metal fixings everyday of the week. They may be female threads such as the parts shown here or male threaded studs. Simple brackets like these can also have bushes inserted using one of our fly-presses when needed. If you follow the links you will see plenty of examples of sheet metal work projects with inserts.

Thin gauge aluminium brackets are perfect for receiving sheet metal fastenings. Aluminium is generally too soft to receive a self-tapping screw. Unless the gauge is considerably thicker we would not recommend tapping a thread. Pressed inserts however are perfect for the job.
If you have a new design for a product in sheet metal and it needs inserts please give us a call. We have lots of standard inserts on the shelf and we can buy in most within a day or two. As a result we can be manufacturing your parts and have the inserts in ready to go when needed. Just give us a call and let’s see what we can do for you.
