Original Press Release:
Atlas® Monel® Inserts Offer Excellent Corrosion Resistance
New Atlas® MONEL® blind threaded inserts (Type AEKM) 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. These high-strength nickel-copper alloy 400 fasteners additionally feature a minimized-profile head allowing for near-flush installations without requiring special hole preparation (such as countersinking or dimpling).
Type AEKM 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.
Type AEKM inserts are available in thread sizes #6-32 through 3/8-16 and M4 through M10. They can be specified for panels of any hardness and as thin as .020" / 0.5mm. Most sizes are in stock for same-day shipment.
