Standard threading, tooling, or attachments aren’t always viable options for every project, as holes can become stripped, materials may be too soft or too thin, and required machining may not suit the specific application at hand. AFI’s specialty threaded inserts, however, allow for high strength and fastening support in a wide range of applications.

Threaded Strength for Metal, Plastic, and Wood

E-Z LOK brand inserts are designed to quickly fasten, repair, and protect threaded connections in a wide range of materials. Specifically designed for soft metals, sensitive molded plastics, and both hardwoods and softwoods, E-Z LOK’s components allow for great versatility in various applications.

Solid and coil threaded inserts, for instance, offer an ideal solution for protecting tapped holes and repairing already worn threads in metals such as aluminum, magnesium, and even cast iron — without the need for special taps or custom installation tools.

Ultrasonic and press-in inserts, meanwhile, are designed for post-molding installation in plastics, specifically thermoplastics and thermoset plastics.

Hex drive inserts provide an efficient threading solution for softwoods such as composition boards, MDF, and pine, while knife thread inserts create a hard, machined thread heavy enough for hardwoods such as cherry, maple, and oak.
