Aluminum Tri-Step inserts from PSM International offer vehicle OEMs several advantages over brass and steel inserts currently used in plastic-molded applications such as air intake manifolds. This lead-free alternative features weight savings, as aluminum is about one-third the weight of the brass and steel inserts now used. For Tier 1 plastic injection molders, reduced installation temperatures, times, and the elimination of the “dwell” required for tapered inserts all lead to a lower in-place cost for each insert. Also, the devices feature a hole profile that is easier to mold and control, which provides improved process capability for the height of the installed insert.
