The Ensat® is a self-tapping metal insert, with internal and external thread and slots or holes providing a tapping effect.
The Ensat® bush is installed into materials with low resistance (such as alloys, plastics and castings) requiring threaded seats with high specifications of resistance and wear. They can also be used for re-tapping worn thread.
The Ensat 302 bush (with tapping grooves) is ideal for use with most applications.
The Ensat® bush may create a slight self-locking effect with some materials.
If this is not required, we recommend the Ensat 307-308 series (with tapping holes), whose shape is ideal for materials that are particularly resistant to cutting.
The Ensat 307 series is short and compact and is particularly suitable for low thicknesses.
The Ensat® bush can be used for all machining and processing of plastics.
The Ensat® bush has a large cutting surface and therefore offers greater resistance to traction. It can be inserted into the finished item, which means higher efficiency for machining centres and the elimination of positioning errors or material deposited in the thread.
A casting hole or tool with standard tolerances is all that is needed to fit Ensat® bushes. Its fast and easy fitting makes the system extremely cost effective.

Ensat bushes allow use of smaller sized screws or tension rods to achieve the same resistance to traction.
With light alloys, Ensat bushes provide maximum resistance to traction with just 30% of side coverage.
Railway-News magazine Issue 3, September 2022: Specialinsert srl - Fasteners for the Railway Industry.
Data sheets for Specialinsert's inserts for composite materials, including: laminates, full parts, and sandwich panels.
Specialinsert compares their different types of MASTER-PLATE® in order to help you identify the fastener system that best suits your needs.
DEFORM-NUT® can be applied to parts with no access to the inside (for example tubes, sheet metal, box structures, composite materials etc.).
The Crown-Nut insert solves any anchoring issues for machining processes on the tubes and guarantees superior hold.
Specialinsert explains the advantages and characteristics of stainless steel fasteners, discussing their wide range of applications.
Specialinsert srl describes how their reliable and durable fastening systems prevent the loosening of fasteners in critical sectors.
Despite their reduced size, the importance for the environmental impact, strength, and durability of a fastener is critical.
Invisible fastening solutions by specialinsert are an ideal choice for projects where the final aesthetic outcome is crucial.
London’s Putney Bridge has shone again thanks to Specialinsert®'s KEEP-NUT® inserts and Armadillo Lighting's LED floodlights.
Fastening systems for plastic possess particular characteristics which must be considered during the design phase.
