A wire insert (or helical screw thread insert) is inserted into the material and makes it possible to reinforce the tapping to provide greater resistance. It provides robustness, especially in soft materials such as aluminum. Wire inserts are generally used in the automotive sector, in aeronautics and in mechanical construction.

C2G offers you to purchase online your steel, stainless steel and aluminum wire inserts. You can also request a price quote directly from our online store.

Steel wire inserts

Steel is the standard material, it is suitable for most uses. Discover a selection of steel wire inserts below.

Stainless steel wire inserts

Stainless steel wire inserts have the advantage of being resistant to temperature and corrosion: an advantage in certain areas such as boiler-making or aeronautics.

Aluminum wire inserts

Choosing aluminum wire inserts has two advantages: corrosion resistance, and a weight lower than other materials.

Crimping material for wire inserts

The crimping equipment for thread inserts can be manual or pneumatic: pneumatic installation pin, tool kit for manual or pneumatic installation.

C2G wire inserts: the choice of mechanical quality, strength and performance

Whether made of steel, stainless steel or aluminum, C2G wire inserts (or helical screw thread inserts) offer several advantages:

  1. Mechanical quality: the behavior of the wire insert allows the loads to be distributed evenly; quality is also present in the design of the component, made with high precision.
  2. Strength: the wire insert is resistant to corrosion, but also to high temperatures and pressure; these assets give it a place of choice in simple or complex mechanical fixing solutions.
  3. Performance: the resistance of the wire insert enables it to offer high performance: disassembly and reassembly, original assembly or repair: it meets the expectations of several industrial sectors. In addition, C2G offers Helicoïl®Plus wire inserts that meet the strictest standards for the nuclear and aerospace industries.
