What Industries Can Use Threaded Inserts?
E-Z LOK threaded inserts come in many different styles and are capable of being used in metal, plastic and wood. While many industries find uses for our products, four of the most common industries that make use of our threaded inserts are mechanical, automotive, woodworking and plastic manufacturing.
Threaded inserts from E-Z LOK have many uses in mechanical settings. We have designed our threaded inserts for metal to be the ideal solution for both unified and metric thread repair in tool cribs, maintenance departments and countless applications in the metalworking and molding industries.
If you're looking for car inserts, our E-Z LOK solid wall automotive inserts are designed for use in spark plug repair. With thread sizes from M10 to M18, our self-locking automotive inserts are built using solid wall construction for greater strength. We also offer VW Case Savers in blind and through-hole designs.
At E-Z LOK, we understand the special tools needed for use in the woodworking industry, including threaded inserts for woodworking. We offer three different styles of threaded inserts for soft wood and hard wood to prevent stripping and thread erosion, providing industry-leading holding power across all applications. Our threaded inserts for wood are often used to reinforce stripped joints and create a strong bond when crafting furniture pieces like a chair or table legs.
Plastic Component Manufacturing
Need a threaded insert for plastic? If you're working with thermoplastics or thermoset plastics, E-Z LOK has created threaded inserts for plastic with holding power in mind. All E-Z LOK plastic screw inserts have been designed for post-molding installation, which reduces molding costs and rejects waste due to misaligned inserts. And, with E-Z Lok screw inserts for plastic, you won't be "chasing" threads after molding. In addition, our threaded inserts for plastic molding are ideal for 3D printing projects that require machine threads.
