Dies and Inserts Catalog

McCoy inserts provide the accuracy you need for critical applications. Our dies are heat-treated to provide maximum insert life. We also offer a variety of tooth patterns to securely grip the hardest strings of casing, tubing, and drill pipe.

We know that today's hostile well environments often use corrosion-resistant alloy (CRA) tubulars that require special handling tools. Our GRITFACE® Inserts allow you to use your standard handling tools with CRA strings because the GRITFACE® Coating prevents contamination and marking. It's economical and allows you to use the tools you have on hand.


The GRITFACE® die and insert coating system combines the use of extremely hard grit particles, high strength corrosion resistant brazing materials and application processes which insure optimum dimensional control.
