Two, the main thread organic thread, self-tapping thread, self-drilling thread three.
Machine tooth thread: During assembly, drill holes and tap teeth on the assembly first. The tapped inner teeth have the same specifications as the outer teeth of the screws, and assemble with smaller torque.
Self-tapping thread: Drill holes on the assembly before assembly, without tapping the inner teeth, and use large torque for assembly.
Self-drilling thread: directly used on the assembly, screw drilling and tapping molding.
Three, fastener thread function
- Fastening and connecting function: suitable for most screw products at this stage.
- Transmission action (displacement action) : such as the micrometer used by QC to check the size.
- Sealing effect: such as pipe connection sealing.
