October 13, 2009 – Acme Industrial Company, a subsidiary of Jergens, Inc., has a new web site which features key locking inserts. These threaded insert products are used extensively in original equipment where a high degree of pull-out and torque-out strength is needed. Additionally, thread repair inserts can be used to quickly repair striped, damaged or worn out threads with new stronger threads.
Acme threaded inserts are easy to install and easy to remove. No special drills, taps or pre-winder tools are required. The insert’s keys are driven down into the threads of the surrounding base material, locking the insert into place and providing a secure mechanical lock against rotation.
Acme threaded insert products are available in both industrial and MS / NAS insert styles in a full range of inch and metric sizes, in coarse or fine pitch threads. Lightweight, Heavy Duty and Extra Heavy Duty types, with Non-locking or Self-locking internal threads are available.
Acme Industrial Company, a major manufacturer of threaded inserts, drill bushing products, and key locking studs, was founded in 1914. Its products are specified throughout industry, including aerospace, and military applications. Acme Industrial Company has an ISO 9001:2008 registered quality system.
