Avdel High Strength Hexsert

Fast Facts:

  • Exceptional torque capability.
  • High-speed assembly.
  • Provides high-strength threads in thin materials starting at 0.5mm.
  • Increased thread strength.
  • Safeguard design avoids overtightening problems such as thread stripping.
  • Assembly applications include tubular steel, hydroformed parts, magnesium castings, and aluminum extrusions.

Specifications:

  • Sizes: M6, M8, M10 and M12
  • Headforms: Large flange
  • Shape: Hexagon
  • Material: Steel Zinc plated to BS 3382 and clear passivated to achieve 240 hours resistance to red corrosion (ASTM B117) Hexavalent Chromium-free

For assistance with hexagonal hole production, see our 74290 tool. The 74290 tool allows customers to benefit from the non-rotational properties of hexagonal inserts compared with round inserts. This is achieved by drilling a round hole, then inserting the 74290 tool and forming a hex hole.

Description

The High Strength Hexsert threaded insert provides a clamp force comparable to weld nuts and clinch nuts in high-torque applications.

The hexagonal shape and large flange gives the High Strength Hexsert® exceptional torque-to-turn strength in thin sheet materials while having safeguards against overtightening which can lead to thread stripping and the need for expensive rework. If excessive torque is applied, the screw shank fails before the insert as protection from overtightening.

Installed and retrofitted with standard Avdel® hand tools, as well as multi-head and auto-feed robotic systems, assembly materials where the High Strength Hexsert® is used include tubular steel, hydroformed parts, magnesium castings, and aluminum extrusions.
