Variations Of Metal Tube Inserts

Rect. Metal Inserts

Round Metal inserts are commonly used in conjunction with metal tubes, this can help to add structural integrity whilst providing a thread which can allow for the external fitting of heavy duty parts such as machine feet and conveyorbelt feet which can be demanding for most standard threaded metal inserts. Threaded round metal inserts are available with a range of thread sizes to suit your specific uses, whether it is a heavy duty use or not, these metal inserts have been designed to work perfectly.

One of the most common is for use with metal tubes where they can be tapped into to provide structural integrity and a threaded solution for the external fitting of parts such as machine feet which require a strong thread to work under heavy weight consistently. Metal inserts are made from steel as standard, this provides a high quality and strong insert that is easily able to absorb shock and withstand the pressure from heavy loads.
