Also repairing damaged and stripped threads is an easy task that every mechanic and DIY enthusiast are mostly familiar with. Thread inserts extends the life structures and machinery. A little vibration and pressure is required to install the thread insert into a molded hollow boss and this process is called ultrasonic insertion.
