Inserts for polymer AM parts
We can fit inserts into polymer AM parts, giving a robust thread for prototyping or manufacturing applications. We use a wide range of Tappex inserts.
Most of our inserts are fitted by heat staking them into the receiving hole. Minimum wall thicknesses should be exceeded where possible to strengthen the insert fitment. Other size inserts and types are available on request.
Please visit the Tappex insert guide here for best practices on designing the receiving hole.
