New microPEM® TackSert (Type TK) diagonal knurl inserts aredesigned to hold a top panel to a bottom panel or chassis by broaching into thebottom panel/chassis. Type TKA (aluminum) inserts are suitable for broaching intoplastic applications, and Type TK4 (400 series stainless steel) inserts are suitable forbroaching into metal applications with a hardness below HRB 80 / HB 150.
Features and Benefits

  • Simple, press-in installation.
  • Secure panels to common magnesium die castingmaterials such as AZ91D
  • Replaces micro screws, eliminating the need to tapor use threaded inserts
  • Eliminates the following:
    • Cost of screw
    • Cost of patch to prevent loosening
    • Cost of threaded insert or tapped hole
    • Cost of driver bits
    • Cost of rework due to cross-threading and driver bit œcam-out
  • Also appropriate for attaching panels to plastics such as ABS.
