Select the Best Nutsert Insert for Your Application
Nutserts are a type of threaded rivet nut insert that can be installed with single side access. Choosing the right nutsert insert for your application is essential to ensure a strong and reliable threaded connection. With a variety of nutsert options available, it can be challenging to determine which one is best suited for your needs. At Bay Supply, we offer three types of nutserts: standard splined nutserts, W-Style knurled nutserts, and Supersert locking structural nutserts.
Standard Splined Nutsert Inserts
The most common variety of nutsert, these inserts have splines on the outside of the body, which grip into the surrounding material to prevent rotation. They are suitable for use in applications where high torque is required, or where there is a risk of vibration loosening your inserts.
W-Style Knurled Nutserts
These nutsert inserts have a knurled body that provides a better grip in the surrounding material. They are commonly used in applications where a high pull-out force is required, such as in thin sheet metal or plastics.
Supersert Locking Structural Nutserts
Supersert inserts are designed for use in high-stress applications where a strong and permanent threaded connection is required. They have a unique locking mechanism that prevents rotation, even under extreme vibration or dynamic loading conditions. They are commonly used in aerospace, automotive, and industrial applications.
When selecting fasteners, it's important to consider the material you will be fastening into, the required strength and torque, and the type of environment the nutsert will be exposed to. To determine the best nutsert insert for your application, it's important to consider the specific requirements of your project and consult with our team of experts.
