Knife thread inserts, also known as self-tapping or press-fit inserts, are fasteners used to create threaded holes in materials like wood, plastic, and soft metals. They have a cylindrical body with external threads and cutting edges, allowing them to cut their own threads during installation. These inserts are installed by pressing or screwing them into a pre-drilled hole, providing a reliable threaded connection without the need for pre-tapping. Knife thread inserts are versatile and find applications in industries such as furniture manufacturing, electronics, automotive, and aerospace.
