The IMTEC CO thread insert for in-moulding is an asymmetric rolled stainless steel A2 (option A4) wire which is mainly used for customer components with blind hole threads. That wire is coiled to form a fixed bushing with at least one flange-type extension. In the forming process, the fasteners are also sufficiently magnetised and can be placed on magnetic core pins manually or by means of handling systems.
■ Maximum usable thread length
■ Corrosion and acid resistance
■ Increased technical cleanliness (residual dirt minimisation)
■ High extraction force due to an optimisation of flank covering in plastics
■ Weight reduction of the components
The IMTEC CF thread inserts with „double flange“ are produced from steel by cold forming. The in-moulding technology requires particularly accurate thread inserts. The deformation area on the IMTEC CF allows precisely adjusting the length of the thread insert according to the mould dimension. Upon closing, the parts of the mould compress the IMTEC CF and precisely adjust the length of the component (L ± 0.05 mm). IMTEC CF is primarily intended for components with through hole threads.
■ Very large flange diameters possible
■ Deformation area for length adjustment of the insert; close length tolerances < L ± 0.05 mm
■ Torque resistance by hexagonal design or knurls
■ Pull out resistance by providing significant under cuts
■ No metal-cutting operation
■ Also feasible as compression limiter
