Thread Cutting Screws

Buy Thread Cutting Screws Here

A thread cutting screw is a type of self tapping screw – in that it both taps and fastens in a single operation. And unlike a thread rolling screw which displaces/deforms the material in the newly formed thread path, thread-cutting screws physically remove the material into which they are driven as they form new mating threads.

Main Features of Thread Cutting Screws:

  • Ideal for use in a variety of plastics, resins and metals
  • Variety of head styles, drives and materials to suite specific applications
  • A thread-cutting slot provides a sharp serrated cutting edge to form a perfect mating thread
  • Blunt point necessitates a pre-drilled pilot hole

Advantages of Thread Cutting Screws:

  • Eliminates the need for a separate tapping operation
  • Thread profile improves integrity of mated threads
  • Improved thread engagement for long-term use
  • Reduced radial and hoop stresses in the boss for prolonged usage
  • Reusable with continued performance
