E-Z LOK to Exhibit New Metal Inserts at IMTS 2024, Booth 432123

Sharing a booth with its sister company TCI Precision Metals

E-Z LOK, a leading manufacturer and master distributor of threaded inserts for metal, plastic and wood will display its products during IMTS 2024, in Chicago, September 9-14 in Booth 432123.  The company will be co-located with its sister company TCI Precision Metals, a leading supplier of metal materials and near-net shapes to machine shops and fabricators.  Highlight of the show for E-Z LOK will be its new line of ultrasonic/heat-stake metal inserts and staking tools for plastics, which can be used for OEM builds as well as retrofits and even injection molding over core pins for creation of strong components with higher torque and pullout strength in use.

In addition, the full line of E-Z LOK threaded carbon inserts with factory-applied LOCTITE™ 204 adhesive coating will be displayed.  Once installed in a metal substrate for repair or added strength in an OEM application, the adhesive seals against liquids and gases to 6000 psi and can perform in temperatures up to 300°F.  These proprietary inserts were developed by the current owner Ben Belzer’s grandfather for the aerospace industry as an alternative to helical inserts. 

A new feature of the E-Z LOK website, www.ezlok.com is the CAD file, which allows an engineer to incorporate any of the thousands of E-Z LOK insert into a design.

Director of Sales & Marketing, Kyle Lindsly-Roach and a team of E-Z LOK engineers will attend the show, displaying the full line of E-Z LOK products. Emphasis will be placed on the company’s threaded inserts for metal, wood and plastic. Speaking about his hopes for the show, Lindsly-Roach said, “We are excited to be able to present our portfolio of products to a wide range of customers, including engineers, OEMs and distributors. We hope to be able to expand our customer base and the industries where our products are, as well as our existing supply chain partners in the OEM, fastener distributor and machine shops.”
