The best cost-effective solution for JOINING THIN METAL SHEET
The increasing demand for weight reduction and cost savings leads to the use of lightweight materials. In the assembly of thin metal with mechanical requirements, the screw must assure the clamping force and minimize the risk of stripping at the lowest cost possible.
The unique FASTITE® 2000™ thread rolling screws are the best cost-effective solution when joining steel and aluminum thin sheets. It offers a strong mechanical joint with excellent pull-out and vibration loosening resistance.
FASTITE® 2000™ screws solve common fastening problems when joining thin metal sheet, assuring clamping force and stripping resistance whilst offering opportunities for cost reduction.
• Assembly costs reduction by eliminating the thread tapping process when using machine screws and sheet extrusion.
• Optimized thread engagement provide high pull-out and vibration loosening resistance.
• Twin-lead thread increases stripping resistance.
• Clockwise under head serrations increase resistance to stripping.
• TRILOBULAR™ thread section provides low threading torque and improves ergonomics.
• The special extruding point ensures an excellent alignment and hole finding, which provides a secure and tight assembly.
• Possibility of piercing thin materials with the optional cut off point
• It is an efficient alternative to high cost elements as threaded inserts and caged nuts.
1 Twin-lead helix provides starting stability
2 Special extruding point increases the thread engagement length during screw insertion
3 Increased core diameter approaching the underside of the head causes additional forward and backward extrusion to increase thread engagement.
