MAThread® screw

The efficient solution to cross-threading problem in pre-tapped holes.

When to choose MAThread® screw?

How does it work?

Round shape of MAThread® point aligns the screw to fit the nut member. MAThread® point engages with optimum interference in the nut to straighten the screw up to 15°.

1. There’s misalignment of the MAThread® and the nut member.

2. MAThread® point aligns the screw to fit into nut memeber. It eliminates the risk of cross-threading.

3. Threads drive normally into the nut eliminating the risk of downtime and rework.

MAThread® point screws and its different variants are recommended for assemblies into:

  • Nuts, tapped holes and inserts in full automated assembly lines.
  • Applications susceptible to cross-threading problems.


  • Prevents cross-threading and blocking problems.
  • Reduces the total cost of assembly:
    • MAThread® point allows an easy and rapid insertion without reducing the installation speed.
    • Eliminates the cost caused by failures, rework, scrap and downtime associated to cross-threading.
  • MAThread® performance is unaffected by installation speed.
  • MAThread® point is the best alternative to the standard Dog Point. In comparison with the standard Dog Point, MAThread® achieves 100% success in alignment.

Screw design specifications

We produce MAThread® screws on special demand to fit your exact requirements. There are different point designs depending on the application requirements:

'P' Point MAThread® for applications in which point length is not a problem.

MATpoint® is compatible with most of the applications, it absorbs misalignments up to 12º.

VS (Very Short) MATpoint® is ideal for application with limited length of engagement, it absorbs misalignments up to 7º.
