AVK AL Series Insert Installation Steps and Video

> Installation Steps and Video

(The video download may take a few minutes, please be patient. While you're waiting please review the installation steps shown on that page.)

  • Exceptional torque strength is achieved as the insert's knurled body expands filling the hole.
  • Quality installations - Even invariable thickness materials are assured by AVK's spin/spin ARO pneumatic tools and our SPP pneumatic hydraulic tools.
  • Superior thread strength is provided due to our internal rolled thread manufacturing process.
  • Threads gauge - Thread dilation is prevented before and after installation due to the increased cross-sectional thickness of the threaded area.
  • Inventory reduction is possible because of the A-L Series' wide grip range capacity. It is 2.5 times greater than conventional rivet nuts.
  • Corrosion resistance is provided by our standard zinc/yellow dichromate finish (96 hrs. salt spray to white corrosion). For exceptional corrosion protection we offer a tin/zinc alloy finish.
  • Available in steel from stock. Additional materials such as aluminum, brass and monel are available by special order. Contact AVK for details.
