Manufacturers working with soft metals and die-cast alloys now have a time- and labour-saving solution to create strong, durable metal threads. PEM introduces the 300 series stainless steel CastSert inserts, designed for quick, reliable, and cost-effective installations.
The PEM 300 series stainless steel CastSert inserts revolutionize installing durable threads into casted materials, offering a simple press-in technique. Unlike helical inserts requiring panel preparation, CastSert inserts are installed by simply pressing into an ‘as-cast’ or drilled hole. This rapid installation method, using a flat punch and anvil, outpaces traditional methods by approximately 80%.
“The PEM CastSert inserts represent a breakthrough in fastening technology, offering manufacturers a superior solution for creating robust threads in soft metals and die-cast alloys,” says Jay McKenna, global technical marketing manager at PennEngineering. “With their quick and efficient installation process, these inserts provide a significant advantage in terms of both time and cost savings.
PEM remains committed to delivering innovative solutions that enhance manufacturing efficiency and reliability. The 300 Series Stainless Steel CastSert inserts are yet another example of their dedication to excellence in fastening technology.
