We have a great choice of sheet metal inserts that we can help you with from threaded self clinch studs and bushes, plain pins, anchor rivet bushes, thumb screws or earth points. We often insert these parts into sheet metal lighting gear trays, electronics chassis, fixing plates and brackets using our Haeger bush inserter or our fly presses. The ability to fix a thread in place is ideal for designs where a component may need to be removed and replaced several times e.g. inspection plate, gear box cover, pump adjustment bracket etc. The range of inserts is enormous and there should be a solution to your needs, if you need any advise in finding the right part please just ask us.
