Threaded inserts are commonly used to fasten fiberglass, metal (metal tubing and sheet metal), plastic casings / housings, and wood. This allows screws to be used for assembly of many consumer products (including electronics), and come in aluminum/steel, steel, steel/zinc offering high-load bearing in different head styles, varying diameters, and grip ranges of .020 – 4.20.
A benefit of threaded inserts is in eliminating machining-operations, as well as swapping back and forth between standard to metric and standard threads.
