The new HELICOIL® Smart is a further quantum leap in the HELICOIL® thread technology. A coil thread insert with tang which does not have to be broken off. The innovation: The installation mandrel bends it backward during spinning off and then compresses it. This smart thread insert merges the advantages of the HELICOIL® Plus and the HELICOIL® Tangfree.
The HELICOIL® Smart thread insert, which is made from a wire with rhombic profile, is also formed into an elastic spiral. As to the Free Running version, thread by thread it is a completely free running coarse thread.
The result is a true‑to‑gauge internal thread including the last thread which is in every case threadable. It produces high‑strength threads transferring forces from flank to flank into the holding thread.
To screw in the thread insert, all you need is the Smart installation mandrel of similar size as a tap. Very special is the blade position control. Upon screwing‑in, the blade has a pull‑in function, whereas upon screwing‑out, it turns into a bending and compression tool.
Of course, you also benefit from the well-known advantages of the established HELICOIL® thread technology.
