Straight vs. Tapered Ultrasonic Threaded Inserts
There are two basic designs for ultrasonic inserts: tapered and straight. Both styles can be installed with either an ultrasonic horn or heat driver, and feature knurl/groove patterns designed for optimum torque and pull-out resistance.
Straight ultrasonic inserts provide superior torque and pull-out resistance, while allowing for thinner boss walls. Flush inserts allows for installation even with or below the material surface; flanged inserts are ideal for electrical connections or for additional pull-out resistance in reverse installations. E-Z LOK’s straight threaded ultrasonic inserts feature a lead-in pilot to facilitate installation. Machined out of brass, these straight ultrasonic inserts are available with internal threads from #2 to 3/8.
Tapered ultrasonic inserts are designed to reduce installation time, particularly in production runs, while maintaining outstanding performance characteristics. E-Z LOK’s tapered ultrasonic inserts are machined out of brass and are available in single and double-vane lengths for maximum design flexibility. Internal threads from #2 to 3/8 and M2.5 to M6 are available.
