Thread-forming in metal
There are plenty of options, from simple manual installation tools to standard tools to fully automated complete systems.
Our assembly solutions are designed as fully automatic or semi-automatic workstations. Depending on your requirements, parts can be handled by the operator, a handling system, a rotary indexing system or a transfer system. Take a look at our assembly solutions.
HELICOIL® thread inserts create high-strength, wear-resistant, heat-resistant thread of the highest precision by transferring the forces from flank to flank into the pilot thread. The reduced diameter of the HELICOIL® Plus in the first turn ensures that the thread insert can be installed like a screw.
Installing HELICOIL® thread inserts is easy and cost-effective, because there are only a few basic rules to follow. For efficient assembly, whether for a single application or for high-volume production, we provide a broad range of manual and automated installation tools.
The HELICOIL® system combines conformance to standards with easy installation.
The installation steps in detail
You can use a standard twist drill.
Use a 90° cutter for countersinking and deburring before thread cutting. External diameter of the countersink = DHC + 0.1 mm.
You should use our system’s original HELICOIL® taps to cut the HELICOIL® Plus pilot thread. Use HELICOIL® plug gauges to verify that pilot thread is true-to-gauge.
Use a thread former to quickly and easily produce a chipless internal thread.
You can carry out the installation with a manual installation tool, an automatic installation tool or a fully automated solution.
