Self -Tapping / Threading Thread inserts for critical applications
Trisert-3® – Features
Insert’s material grades
In most applications into plastic, the standard brass Trisert® offers a satisfactory and economic solution with good wear resistance and strength. Also it will withstand corrosion in most environments without any second operation surface treatment.
In order to meet the requirements of a wider range of host materials and harsher applications, the selection of the material for the Trisert-3® is very important. Trisert-3® inserts are offered in two grades of stainless steel (303 and 316) as well as a case-hardened steel variant with zinc nickel, trivalent passivated finish.
The stainless steel versions, in particular, are able to withstand critical operating environments, such as marine and chemical/food-processing, while still retaining good wear resistance and mechanical strength.
Trisert 3® – Installation
Hand Installation Equipment
Alternatively, the inserts can be installed by hand, using Tappex Hand Tools (031 range) that come complete with an alignment bush to ensure correct installation.
TRISERT-3® - REDUCED HEADED - 6238M3
These materials are RoHS compliant.
Finish: Self-Colour Passivated and as specified. Special finishes to customer requirements, at extra cost.
Description: The Trisert-3 is a single ended self-tapping insert. Its main features are the truncated external thread form with three equally spaced cutting facets.
Application: Designed to meet the the requirements of a wide range of host materials and harsh environments where brass Triserts would not be suitable. The Trisert-3 is compatible with the hole size for the equivalent size standard Trisert. Suitable in corrosive atmospheres and for installation into alloys or particularly hard engineering plastics.
Hole Size: Moulded and drilled hole diameters vary dependent upon installation technique, specific component geometry and material. Please consult our technical department for a precise recommendation, to ensure optimum production conditions. Sizes given are for reference purposes only.
Hole Design: The hole design information is intended to indicate the approximate dimensional requirements for satisfactory installation of the insert. They should not be specified for production tooling without prior consultation with our Application Engineering Department - we accept no responsibility should the use of this information without consultation result in product failure.
