Tappex launches its 3rd Generation Heat Inserter

Published: 29 September 2020 - Rachael Morling

The Tappex Generation 3 heat inserter has been designed to allow quick, easy and repeatable installation of a range of Tappex threaded inserts, into plastic moulds.

The machine comes as standard with one heater cartridge but is capable of installing up to 4 inserts, at multiple heights at one time with additional cartridges fitted.
 
“Tappex were recently approached by a local moulding company regarding a new, large volume moulding project that they were working on for a major automotive OEM. They had a particularly tricky mould design that required 4 threaded inserts to be heat installed, post mould. After assessing the available tooling solutions, they approached Tappex to see what they could offer.
 
The Tappex Engineering Team assessed the drawings and produced a bespoke, multi point solution for the moulder allowing them to secure the business with the OEM. A further 3 units are planned for purchase which will dramatically reduce the installation time on other projects.
 
Tappex is proud to have been manufacturing in Britain for over 60 years and offers a range of thread insert and installation tooling solutions for plastic injection mould applications.
