Heat Staking: Inserting Metal Into Plastic
Dr. Girish Dahake, Senior VP Global Applications
One of the most common uses for induction heating is the heat staking of threaded metal inserts into plastic. Most thermo-plastics are too soft to sufficiently hold a thread, so brass or steel threaded inserts are added.
For heat staking, the insert is preheated with induction and then pressed into a hole in the plastic part. This is accomplished by positioning the induction coil over the hole and then holding the insert in the coil for a short period of time.
