Keensert solid keylocking inserts are an easily installed thread assembly that is ideal for replacing damaged or worn threads in virtually any material – ferrous, non-ferrous and non-metallic. They are constructed from high quality carbon steel or extremely hardwaring stainless steel. One piece Keensert inserts are supplied with the dove-tailed locking keys pre-assembled. The pre-positioned keys automatically position the insert at the correct depth below the surface of the parent material. Keenserts are suitable for repairing and creating threads in a wide range of applications including forgings and castings and are especially suited to situations that experience heavy wear and vibration – such as mining, construction and eathmoving equipment.
