Thread repair with assembly tool - How does it actually work?
Basically, a special insert is inserted into the existing, damaged thread during repair with assembly tools. The original nominal diameter is retained, so the renewed thread can continue to be used without further adjustments. Another advantage of this process is that the thread is not only repaired, but also strengthened at the same time. This is therefore also referred to as thread armoring. You therefore do not have to expect any loss of service life or load capacity.
In addition to the appropriate inserts, you will need various assembly tools to carry out this repair. For a high-quality result, it is best to use only thread insert tools that are designed for exactly this task. In our assortment you will find two product lines that provide all the parts you need. With us, you get all assembly tools from a single source. This way, you can always rely on consistent quality and precision and the thread repair will succeed in no time.

Even when using self-tapping thread inserts, the first step is to drill out the old thread. Then you can countersink the hole with a taper countersink. The thread is cut by the insert itself, so you don't have to pre-cut it. Instead, you simply place the thread insert on the installation tool and lock it with a nut. Then slowly screw it into the core hole. The installation tool has a bit holder, so you can easily use it with a cordless screwdriver, for example.
If you are working with a machine, please use our machine installation tools. To complete the process, simply loosen the lock nut again and unscrew the installation tool. Finished is the repaired thread and then even higher loadable than the original thread. The big advantage of this system is that you only need one special installation tool to screw in the thread insert, instead of many installation tools.
