Description

The Hexsert® insert (offered in metric sizes only) is a steel, hexagonal shaped, bubbling insert offered with low profile or large flange. Bubbling means that during the installation process, the insert collapses into a bubble shape on the backside of the application material. The application material is clamped between the flange of the insert and the bubble shape resulting in high resistance to pull-out loads. Because the insert forms a bubble on the backside of the application, the Hexsert® insert cannot be used in blind hole applications.

The bubble also serves as a load bearing surface, which absorbs the force of setting the insert. Otherwise the setting force, or clamp load, could spread into the application material and might damage the material. This makes the Hexsert® insert ideal for use in thin sheet, soft, brittle and low strength materials.

The hexagonal shape of the Hexsert® insert improves torque-to-turn in metallic sheets by up to 200% compared to plain body inserts making the Hexsert® insert ideal for automotive chassis components or thermal applications where high resistance to turning under loads is required or there is high expansion and contraction in the parent material. The low profile flange of the Hexsert® insert results in near flush installation and clamp up making it ideal for flush fitting, thin sheet and low load bearing applications, while the large flange option provides a large load bearing surface, reinforces the application hole and prevents push through.

Features

  • Hexagonal section and bore improves torque-to-turn by up to 200% in sheet metal compared to round body inserts
  • Superior pull-out performance
  • Can be used for very thin sheet materials from 0.50mm (0.02")
  • Double diameter body and lead-in chamfer provide easy insertion into hole
  • Access needed from only one side of the application, for high speed assembly
  • Provide a female thread in application
  • Can be installed in pre-coated or post painted applications without damaging the surface
  • Clamp two or more sheets
  • Various platings available to increase corrosion resistance
  • Low profile head allows near flush fit to application and clamps two or more sheets of material together, within the grip range
  • Large flange head provides a load bearing surface and reinforces the hole to prevent push-out. Can be used as a spacer and can be supplied with an underhead seal.
  • Closed end prevents the ingress of dirt and fluids into thread and electrical circuits
  • High strength option available for use with metric bolts and screws up to Property Class 12.9
  • Can be used with hand tools, pneumatic tools and fully automated machines to suit a wide range of assembly methods
