Is It Possible To Thread Square Tubing for Products?
If you’re wondering whether it’s possible to thread square tubing for products, of course it is! Square tubing inserts are one of the many products we offer at Polymer Molding. However, that answer isn’t enough for many people. If you’re like them, you might want to know how square threaded inserts are made, as well as the uses and benefits of these versatile products. Read on to learn more!
How Are Square Threaded Inserts Made?
Our square threaded inserts are manufactured through a process known as plastic injection molding. Whether you’ve heard of injection molding or not, you benefit from it every day.
If you drove to work today, you can thank injection molding for various components in your car. If you find the indoor temperature comfortable, check your window frames to see more signs of injection molding.
Injection molding is a clever process that uses plastic pellets—the plastic depends on the product’s final use. Some products require greater flexibility, while others need to work well at high temperatures. No matter your goal, there’s a plastic to meet your needs. Once the plastic is selected, it gets melted and injected into a mold. When the plastic cools, the mold opens, and you have your part!
Uses for Square Threaded Inserts
There’s no need to professionally finish or weld open tubes when you have square inserts. It’s often much more time-consuming and expensive to weld square tubes, so square inserts are a simple solution. They add a high-quality look to your product without breaking the bank.
Benefits of Square Threaded Inserts
One of the biggest benefits of square plastic tube inserts is increased safety. Instead of working with sharp metal edges, square inserts add a safe finish. In addition, they are extremely simple to install—just push them in!
Now that you know it’s possible to thread square tubing for products, be sure to pick up all the plastic tube inserts you need, no matter what you need them for. Feel free to contact Polymer Molding with any questions, comments, or concerns. We’re looking forward to hearing from you!
