Yardley Products Corporation, a manufacturer of threaded metal insert fasteners, has been producing non-magnetic brass inserts for use in MRI machines and sensitive electronics equipment for nearly five years. In addition to being made in the USA, Yardley has reaffirmed their commitment to producing the highest quality non-magnetic metal inserts by upgrading to all new magnetoscope equipment used for testing and quality control of the products.
“Standard brass inserts are actually slightly magnetic due to small traces (about .2% – .4%) of iron in the alloy”, said Tim Bailey, president at Yardley Products. “Our magnetoscope testing equipment allows us to perform a quality check that ensures absolutely zero magnetic material is present in our non-magnetic fasteners.”
There are numerous applications that require the use of non-magnetic inserts in order to minimize potential RF interference with sensitive electronics and prevent failure. Typical applications include medical instruments like MRI machines, microwave and cell phone towers, semiconductor protection equipment and devices, aerospace vehicles, robotic assemblies, instrumentation devices, printers/plotters, and laboratory and test equipment.
The non-magnetic characteristics (zero magnetic flux density) of the material used by Yardley, produces inserts of the same high quality as those produced with magnetic materials. In addition, the full line of Yardley’s brass threaded metal inserts are available in the non-magnetic variety.
Produced on a custom quote basis, Yardley non-magnetic threaded metal insert fasteners are available in a wide range of U.S. and metric sizes and thread configurations.
In addition to non-magnetic brass inserts, Yardley Products manufactures a full line of standard and custom press-in, molded-in, epoxied-in, self tapping, ultrasonic, and thermal insert fasteners in aluminum, brass, diecast. plated steel, stainless steel and steel.
