A-H Series Threaded Insert
The A-H Series Insert features a radius corner hex body. When installed into a corresponding hex hole, the radius corners of the A-H Series Insert expand and fill the hole corners providing exceptional resistance to spinning in the panel. The A-H Series is designed to be used with Grade 5 or Metric Class 8.8/9.8 mating screws.
The A-H Series Insert can be installed using AVK's ARO brand pneumatic tools or AVK's SPP™ pneumatic/hydraulic tools. These tools can be located at any position on your assembly line. The A-H Series Insert can be installed either before or after finish.
| EXCEPTIONAL resistance to spinning in the panel is achieved as the A-H Series’ hex body expands FILLING THE HOLE.
AVOID STRESS FRACTURES of your material and prolong punch and die life by specifying a radius corner in your hex hole. This is possible when using the A-H Series radius hex body insert.
QUALITY INSTALLATIONS even in variable thickness materials are assured by AVK’s spin/spin ARO pneumatic tools and our SPP™ pneumatic/hydraulic tools..
SUPERIOR THREAD STRENGTH is provided due to our internal rolled thread manufacturing process.
| THREADS GAUGE before and after installation due to the increased cross-sectional thickness of the thread area. Thread dilation is prevented.
INVENTORY REDUCTION is possible because of the A-H Series’ wide grip range capacity. It is 2.5 times greater than conventional rivet nuts.
SUPERIOR CORROSION RESISTANCE is provided by our standard zinc/yellow dichromate finish (96 hrs. salt spray to white corrosion). For exceptional corrosion protection we offer a tin/zinc alloy finish
AVAILABLE IN STEEL.
A-H Series Design Types
Thread area is enclosed eliminating leakage past the threads from either side of the application.
A PVC foam seal is bonded to the underside of the head and when installed provides a weathertight seal. (Also available in the closed end version.)
