KATO Tangless CoilThread inserts require less overall installation time, and that means lower production costs. In fact, customer studies show that using KATO Tangless inserts can save from $0.15 - $0.50 per hole in labor costs!
KATO Tangless inserts can save thousands of dollars by eliminating the likelihood of damage to the machined part, and preventing the need to rework. KATO Tangless inserts can reduce the number of scrapped parts generated from incorrect installation of tanged inserts. Having a notch on both ends means KATO Tangless inserts can be repositioned (if installed too deep), or removed without any damage to the parent material, insert, or STI threads. Try that with a tanged insert!
