Tangless thread insert
Tangless thread inserts that are helically-coiled, bi-directional, wire design,designed to offer the same reliable, permanent, wear-resistant screw thread that completely eliminates the need for tang break-off and retrieval. Generally, wire thread inserts use a small piece of material at the bottom of the insert to provide a catching point for the installation tooling, making installation possible and easier. The tang needs to be broken off and removed after installation.
Tangless inserts, however, can be installed without the use of a tang using specialised tooling and have notch located at either end of the coil insert instead of a tang located at one end of the inserts. The absence of a tang eliminates the risk of the metal tang falling into safety critical applications such as engines or electronic equipment.
In fact,Tangless Thread inserts are identical to tanged inserts in every way except for their method of installation and removal.
Tangless inserts provide many advantages over tanged inserts.
They allow for non-destructive insert removal. Tangless inserts are easily adjusted and easily removed after installation.
