The use of self-tapping inserts has significant advantages over pre-tapped holes, moulded-in inserts and wire thread inserts. They eliminate close tolerance holes required for tapping directly into the base material, damaged tools and low productivity resulting from moulded-in inserts and the time consuming process of placing wire thread inserts into pre-tapped holes.
The use of a self-tapping insert can result in a reduction in thread size required because of the insert's large effective shear surface saving material and reducing cost and weight.
