Type MSIB™ microPEM® brass inserts from PennEngineering® provide reusable metal threads to attach plastics securely in compact electronic assemblies. Their unique symmetrical shape will accommodate either straight or tapered holes and eliminate any need for orientation of the inserts during installation.
Type MSIB™ microPEM® brass inserts install permanently when designed into ABS, polycarbonate, and other plastic substrates, by pressing them into the host material using ultrasonic equipment or thermal press. Upon installation they will not loosen or fall out.
