b&m-REPTO® S

Threaded insert for screwing into plastics

The b&m-REPTO® S is a threaded insert for screwing-in, and serves with its internal thread as connection point for reliable and reproducible repeating assemblies of metric screws.

The outer contour corresponds to an external thread and is installed in the plastic like a screw. Because of the large contact surface between insert and plastic much higher loads can be accommodated than with direct screwing connections.
