SPIROL is pleased to announce the recent expansion of Shop.SPIROL.com in the United Kingdom, Germany, and Canada to include Disc Springs, Slotted Spring Pins and Inserts for Plastics.
SPIROL initially launched Shop.SPIROL.com within the USA in 2018 for their flagship product, the Coiled Spring Pin. Since then, the eCommerce program has steadily expanded to include additional products lines, languages and the ability to purchase in different currencies.
SPIROL's eCommerce program enables customers to safely and conveniently purchase standard products in small quantities by using their credit card or PayPal account. (Bulk quantities are available at a discounted rate.) A Material Certification or a Certification of Conformity / Compliance may be added to each order.
In addition to being able to purchase product or request a quote, visitors can also download 2D Drawings and 3D Models of each product type available on Shop.SPIROL.com. Eventually, all of SPIROL’s engineered fasteners will be available on Shop.SPIROL.com - including additional languages and currencies.

SPIROL is pleased to announce the expansion of their Solid Pin Product Line to include the new Series BP100 Press-N-Lok ™ Pin . The new Press-N-Lok ™ Pin was designed to permanently retain two plastic components to each other. The pin has opposing raised barbs on each end that are angled backwards opposite the direction of insertion. As the pin is being inserted, the plastic backfills into the area around the barbs resulting in maximum resistance to axial force providing a secure, tamper resistant assembly. The Press-N-Lok ™ Pin is manufactured from lightweight, lead free, corrosion resistant aluminum. One major advantage of the Press-N-Lok ™ Pin is that assembly time is quicker and it requires lower assembly equipment costs as compared to screws and adhesives.
The Press-N-Lok ™ Pin is installed in two steps:
Step 1: Press the pin into one half of the plastic housing.
Step 2: Align the other half of the housing with the exposed end of the pin and press into place.
Complimentary Applications Engineering Support: SPIROL Engineers will review your application requirements and work with your design team to recommend the best solution at the lowest total assembly cost. It all starts with our Optimal Application Engineering process.

SPIROL is pleased to introduce a new, high-performance series of Molded-In Inserts for plastics assemblies. The rugged design of the Series 63 Through Hole Inserts and Series 65 Blind End Inserts consists of multiple bands of helical knurls to maximize torque resistance, balanced with radial undercuts to achieve high pull-out (tensile) force. These Molded-In Inserts are designed to be placed in the mold cavity prior to plastic injection, and offer exceptional performance due to unrestricted plastic flow into the retention features on the outside diameter of the Inserts.
These lightweight, lead-free Threaded Inserts for Plastics are manufactured from 2024 grade aluminum which provides the best combination of strength, corrosion resistance, machinability and cost. The Series 63 and Series 65 Molded-In Inserts are lead free, 40% stronger than brass, and 1/3 the weight of the same Insert manufactured from brass. Standard metric thread sizes include M4, M5, M6, and M8, and standard inch threaded sizes include 8-32, 10-24, 1/4-20, and 5/16-18.
SPIROL offers a comprehensive line of Inserts for Plastics including Press-In, Self-Tapping, Heat / Ultrasonic and Molded-In styles to accommodate specific performance and installation requirements! Learn more about SPIROL Inserts for Plastics, design guidelines for the plastic components that use Inserts, proper installation methods and performance testing parameters in their full Inserts for Plastics design guide on SPIROL.com.
Involve SPIROL in the design stage of your next project and their Application Engineers will not only recommend the most cost effective Threaded Insert for your plastic assembly, but they will also help make the critical design recommendations between their engineered fastener and your assembly.
