A) " GRIPP® " Screw Thread Insert
: Most light alloys and plastic materials are very
low in shear strength. Consequently tapped threads in the material
have poor pull strength and low resistance to wear.
wire inserts have been the preferred solution for strengthening
threads in low-strength metal materials for over thirty years due
to high-wearing tensile strength, low thread friction, tight tolerances
and a high surface quality as well as corrosion and heat resistance.
These inserts are formed by coiling a rhomboidically profiled
wire into a resilient spiral coil resulting in an optimal
fitting structural shape, hence the name coiled screw
thread wire insert.
These coiled wire inserts provide a hard accurate lasting
thread of high mechanical efficiency.
" GRIPP ® "
inserts are lighter, cheaper and occupy less space than a solid
bushing, by locking itself permanently into position in a tapped
hole, screw thread inserts do not require staking or locking pins
which generally add to assembly weight and bulk.
" GRIPP® "
wire inserts are manufactured for every thread form including UNC,
UNF, BSW, BSF, BSP, BA and ISO Metric threads.
wound screw thread inserts are manufactured from class
304 (18-8), 316 stainless steel as well as Inconel materials.
" GRIPP ® " wire
inserts are available in two types –
1) Free Running
2) Screw-Lock Inserts
Free Running Inserts : - are precision
female wire thread of high surface finish and strength.
These inserts, besides strengthening the threads of the parent
material also cancel out errors of pitch and angles while mating
with its corresponding bolt.
The outer diameter of these inserts being larger than the tapped
hole the " GRIPP®" insert
anchors itself once fitted because of the radial pressure exerted.
:- apart from having all the above merits these inserts
posses a polygonal central coil which exerts a prevailing and resilient
torque on the bolt preventing the bolt/screw from loosening under
vibrations and impacts.
The bolt/screw can be fitted and removed several times without any
considerable loss of torque.
Screw-lock inserts when fitted into nuts provide what is
probably the best kind of self-locking nuts, known as
WIRE FLATTENERS manufactures inserts alongwith fitment
and removal tools & accessories like insert taps,
gauges which makes it
the largest mfrs in India.
WIRE FLATTENERS with their mfg and marketing abilities introduced
wire inserts to India and have made it the preferred industrial
fastener where thread reliability is a critical factor.
coiled wire inserts are the ultimate and indispensable
industrial fasteners providing preventive and curative thread strengthening
B) " GRIPP ® " LOCK-NUTS : -
WIRE FLATTNERS, Bombay (Mumbai) mfrs nuts in various materials
like En, Stainless Steel, Brass, Inconel etc; fitted with S.S-304/316
or Inconel screw-lock type wire thread inserts."GRIPP®
" nuts are the only long term solution
to loosening fasteners in situations of aggressive vibrations and
impacts where other industrial fasteners tend to loosen.
The locking wire insert features a series of uniquely designed polygonal
locking coil threads which upon the engagement of a screw or bolt,defect
radially to permit bolt installation. Upon bolt entry these locking
threads flex outwards creating pressure between the flanks of the
bolt thread, maximizing the contact area.
nuts have magical torque retaining abilities even in the
event of numerous fitments and removals making them indispensable
in industries like automobiles, railways, material handling and conveying
