Product Updates, KATO

KATO Introduces The World's Smallest Tangless® Inserts

KATO utilized state-of-the-art wire forming technology and advanced micro manufacturing techniques to produce the 0-80, 1-64, & M2 Tangless CoilThread inserts, the industry's smallest unified and metric Tangless thread sizes.

KATO 0-80, 1-64, & M2 Tangless Inserts

Once again, KATO redefines cutting edge in the helically coiled screw thread insert market. As technology moves forward, the expectations and demands on engineers are to design parts that are smaller, lighter, and more powerful. This holds true for everything from electronics to mechanical components. As a result, and in response to this trend, KATO continues to develop innovative new technology that pushes the envelope of wire insert manufacturing. The New 0-80, 1-64, and M2 Tangless CoilThread inserts are the latest results of these efforts.

0-80, 1-64, & M2 Availability

The new 0-80, 1-64, and M2 Tangless CoilThread inserts are currently available in free-running 1, 1.5 and 2 diameter nominal lengths. STI taps, STI gages, installation, and non-destructive KATO removal tools for the 0-80, 1-64, and M2 Tangless CoilThread inserts are also available.
