Tri-Star Industries, Berlin, Connecticut, USA, has introduced new precision inserts for "mold-in" applications. The MC- and MT-Series inserts are designed for molding into plastics, rubber and ceramics. "Aggressive diamond knurling provides high resistance to tensile pull and rotational torque loads, ensuring maximum holding power," Tri-Star says.
The MC-Series inserts have a "closed-end" bottom to prevent plastic flow into the threads, the company notes, and the MT-Series is "ideal for thru-thread mold-in applications. They both feature close tolerance ID for more accurate positioning on core pins during the mold-in process." Manufactured from Brass (Alloy 360), both series are available in standard sizes; additional thread sizes and materials are available through custom design capabilities.
