How Are Threaded Inserts Inserted?

You will need to have specific tools for the insertion of threaded inserts. While heat insert drivers and ultrasonic transducers can be used on plastic, press-fitting is also an option only if the boss design is firm enough – these inserts were the best i’ve tried. Metal inserts can be inserted with a number of stationery tools easily available. While there is a difference in the machining capabilities of the devices, multiple threaded inserts can be installed easily without needing specific tools all the time.
