b&m-REPTO® S

Threaded insert for screwing into plastics

The b&m-REPTO® S is a threaded insert for screwing-in, and serves with its internal thread as connection point for reliable and reproducible repeating assemblies of metric screws.

The outer contour corresponds to an external thread and is installed in the plastic like a screw. High loads can be absorbed due to the large contact area between insert and plastic.
