What is Insert Staking? ...... Using thermal probes, brass or metal inserts are inserted into cavities moulded into the component. Heat from the probe transfers through the insert and melts the plastic surrounding the insert so the insert becomes embedded in the component. This process can be used on a variety of products including fasteners, hinge plates, pivots and hubs to name but a few. This is another of the many services Gilt Edge Plastics are able to provide to customers. Contact us for specialist advice.
