Tappex Thread Inserts Ltd have over 60-years’ experience in the design and manufacture of threaded inserts for most Plastics, Woods, Light-Metal Alloys & now Composite Materials.

Our initial free of charge desktop survey revealed that the site was non-compliant with Power Factor legislation and significant ‘Reactive Charges’ were being applied by their energy supplier.

After our detailed site survey, we recommended the introduction of Power Factor Correction equipment to their main incoming supply.

Our recommendations were applied, and the electrical efficiency was improved to around 98% leading to the complete removal of ‘Reactive Charges’ and a Return on Investment of 11 Months.
