KATO 0-80 & M2 Tangless Inserts

Once again, KATO redefines cutting edge in the helically coiled screw thread insert market.

This holds true for everything from electronics to mechanical components. As a result, and in response to this trend, KATO continues to develop innovative new technology that pushes the envelope of wire insert manufacturing. The New 0-80 and M2 Tangless CoilThread inserts are the latest results of these efforts.
