Description

The Hexsert® provides a blind threaded insert with a hexagonal body, yielding high torque-to-turn and pull-out performance, particularly in soft metals.

The hexagonal section and bore improves torque-to-turn by up to 200% in sheet metal, compared to round-body inserts. Plus, the Hexsert® can be used in very thin materials (from 0.50mm [0.02″]) with quick and easy insertion.

Available in various platings and options, The Hexsert® can be used with hand tools, pneumatic tools, and fully automated machines to suit a wide range of assembly methods.
