Description

The TSN® threaded insert is a low profile, plain bodied, bubbling insert in aluminum or steel construction offered in a wide variety of standard and metric thread sizes. 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 TSN® 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 TSN® insert ideal for use in thin sheet, soft, brittle and low strength materials.

The low profile flange of the TSN® insert results in near flush installation and clamp up making it ideal for flush fitting, thin sheet and low load bearing applications.

Features

  • Can be used in very thin sheet materials from 0.50mm (0.02")
  • Access needed from only one side of the application, for high speed assembly
  • Provides a female thread in application
  • Can be installed in pre-coated or post painted applications without damaging the surface
  • Various platings available to increase the 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 under-head seal
  • Closed end prevents the ingress of dirt and fluids into thread and electrical circuits
  • Can be used with hand tools, pneumatic tools and fully automated machines to suit a wide range of assembly methods
