Inserts offer excellent corrosion resistance

Recently launched by PennEngineering, Atlas Monel blind threaded inserts provide strong permanent threads in thin panel sections and offer excellent corrosion resistance ideally suited for attachment applications where equipment or components will be exposed to especially harsh conditions.

Type AEKM high-strength nickel-copper alloy 400 fasteners additionally feature a minimised-profile head allowing for near-flush installations without requiring special hole preparation such as countersinking or dimpling.

The inserts can be installed quickly and easily anywhere and at any stage in the shop or field using Atlas Spin-Pull, Pull-to-Pressure, or Spin-Spin tools. An added benefit is their capability to accommodate applications where only one side of a panel is accessible for hardware installation. In these cases, the inserts can be installed from the front side and a single mating screw completes final component attachment.
