Global Heli-Coil Thread Inserts Market: Introduction
Heli-coil thread inserts are helical-shaped cold rolled wires with high strength, high wear resistance, corrosion resistance and heat resistant threads. Heli-coil thread inserts are mainly used in fastening systems. Different types of heli-coil thread inserts such as free running thread inserts, self-locking or screw locking thread inserts, tangless heli-coil thread inserts, etc. are used in fastening systems of automobiles and electronics appliances. Heli-coil thread inserts provide resilient locking systems that grips the bolt and prevents it from loosening under vibration or impact. Hence, these thread inserts were very useful in repeated assembly and disassembly without appreciable loss of self-locking torque. Heli-coil thread inserts save space and weight through elimination of lock nuts, lock wiring, lock washers, chemicals for locking systems, plastic pellets and other locking mechanisms, which in turn, reduce the cost of locking system or fastening system.
Depending on their end-use, different kinds of heli-coil thread inserts are employed for different applications. As an example, screw locking thread inserts with high torque are mainly used in relatively higher vibration applications like automobile gear boxes, exhaust systems and engines, etc.
Global Heli-Coil Thread Inserts Market: Dynamics
Heli-coil thread inserts are used across various end-use industries such as aerospace & defense, electrical & electronics, telecommunications and other industries (printing presses, manufacturing plants and machines, etc). An upsurge in different end-use product demand & industrial development are the two crucial factors boosting the demand for heli-coil thread inserts, which in turn, is propelling the overall growth of the global heli-coil thread inserts market. Also, the continuous developments in the heli-coil thread inserts design and technology are best suited to specific industrial applications such as heli-coil plus for aerospace and defense where space saving and lightweight parts are required. This is further fueling the growth of global heli-coil thread inserts market. The new technology developed in the area of heli-coil thread inserts revolves around threads reinforcement and repair. This new technology is used when low strength materials such as aluminum, aluminum-magnesium alloys and fiber-reinforced plastics are used. This technology is the basis for national standardization as well as aeronautical and military standards.
There are the two main restraining factors impeding the growth of the global heli-coil thread inserts market. First, installation of heli-coil thread inserts is difficult and time consuming. Second, heli-coil thread inserts have an alternative in the form of TIME-SERT threaded inserts. Usage of newly designed and developed heli-coil thread inserts with lightweight materials such as Inconel X750 in gas turbine engines and nuclear applications is the key trend observed in the global heli-coil thread inserts market.
