Specialty Inserts

Threaded inserts can provide strong threads and fastening support for materials or situations in which standard threading or attachment can’t be applied. For example, “blind” threaded inserts can create a threaded hole in applications that only allow access from one side.

These specialty components can also repair stripped threaded holes, offer additional support to holes in soft or very thin materials, add molded or cast threads to a material in place of utilizing machining, or convert an existing thread style in a part.

AFI Trusted Brand: Atlas Engineering

The AFI team is proud to partner with the best insert engineers in the world. Our inventory is loaded with a wide variety of inserts from two premium suppliers:

Atlas SpinTite, MaxTite and Plus+Tite Fasteners serve a full range of applications. Atlas specializes in fasteners for blind applications, while the MaxTite line is uniquely designed for especially heavy-duty applications. With strong, reusable threads, these fasteners create superior pullout resistance in thin materials such as sheet metal and plastic, with a pre-bulbed design that requires less installation force.

AFI Trusted Brand: Dodge Inserts

A product of Stanley Engineered Fastening, Dodge Inserts are available in a wide range of specialized models, including self-threading, miniature styles, and Taper Tuff. They suit almost any application in plastics, providing high strength and cost effective performance.

AFI Trusted Brand: Heli-Coil

Another member of the Stanley Engineered Fastening family, Heli-Coil inserts are widely recognized as the original wire thread insert component, setting the bar for incorporating steel-like thread performance into softer materials.

AFI Trusted Brand: Sherex Fastening Solutions

“Engineered for Performance,” the Sherex line of products is crafted to the highest quality standard, with certifications including ISO 14001:2004, ISO 9001:2008, TS16949, and AS 9100. Sherex fasteners and components can be found in applications including automotive, defense, agriculture, construction, heavy equipment, and more.
