plastic part compression limiter
for plastic parts
Compression limiters are plain hole metal inserts designed for use in plastic moulded components. The plain hole provides bolt clearance and the wall of the compression limiter withstands the compressive force induced during the assembly of the mating screw or bolt. In most instances compression limiters are installed using a simple cold press assembly method.
Compression limiters are available in a wide range of designs to suit customers application and assembly requirements. They are produced using a number of manufacturing methods and can be made from a range of materials.
