The pull-down insert from WDS Component Parts quickly holds the work piece in position without creating any raised surfaces. Thanks to a reversed internal thread, the clamping pin can retract inside itself to make fixturing a simple task and improve access for the machine cutting tool.

The WDS Pull Down Insert is a pull back threaded clamping insert that provides reliable clamping without obstruction to the machined surface, making it suitable for up to five-axis machining, unusual shapes and thin-walled components.

Commonly used in the aerospace industry, the inserts are designed so that they may be fitted into the fixture plate in the compressed condition, with the whole of the insert below the clamping and location face. This enables the work piece to be manoeuvred into position over the inserts. A standard hexagon key is engaged with the inner component of the Pull Down Insert creating the clamping force.

The inserts are available in a selection of standard sizes from M12 (M6 clamping screw) to M24 (M12 clamping screw). Because they are machined in-house in Leeds, WDS is able to offer next-day delivery on most orders. Prior to placing an order, engineers are invited to download a free 3D CAD drawing of the insert to make sure that they specify the correct components for the job.
