The smallest Tangless insert ever manufactured

In order to keep up with technological advances the products are getting smaller, lighter and more powerful, both in electronics and mechanics. As a response to this trend KATO Advanex keeps developing innovative technology, as with Tangless inserts M2 and 0-80 for which KATO Advanex uses a proprietary technology. The inserts are available in Free Running version and with lengths 1d, 1.5d, 2d

KATO Tangless threads require less installation time which means less production costs.

Studies on customers show that an amount that goes from $ 0.15 to $ 0.50 can be saved per each hole, furthermore the risk of damage to machined parts is avoided as well as the risk of secondary operations. With KATO Tangless threads, the number of parts rejected and reworked due to incorrect installation of the inserts is drastically reduced. The presence of a notch on each side allows the adjustment (for example with a too deep installation) and even the complete removal of the insert with an easy unscrewing that does not cause any damage to the part or to the insert. This is not easily possible with a classic insert or a pull stud.
