A newly updated 20-page product bulletin profiles the complete line of Sl® threaded inserts, which are designed to provide strong, durable metal threads in plastic materials. Since they enable component disassembly for service or repairs, SI brass, stainless steel, or aluminum inserts can serve as a practical alternative to other joining methods, such as permanently bonded adhesives or rivets.

"Bulletin SI" profiles S1 ultrasonic/heat staking threaded inserts, which are installed ultrasonically or with a thermal press and S1 press-in threaded inserts, which are installed by pressing them into pre-drilled holes. All are available in a wide range of unified and metric thread sizes. The bulletin includes parts' designations, available materials, thread sizes, and performance data, as well as a general description of usage and a special custom-design section.

For more information, or a free copy of the bulletin, contact Michael J. Rossi, Penn Engineering Engineering & Manufacturing Corp., Box 1000, Danboro, PA 18916, 800-237-4736, 215-766-8853, Fax: 215-766-0143, E-mail:, Web:
