TAPTITE II® TRILOBULAR™ Fasteners

TAPTITE II® TRILOBULAR™ Fasteners

TAPTITE II® TRILOBULAR™ thread-rolling screws roll-form strong, high integrity threads in drilled, punched or cored holes in ductile metals and castings. As each lobe of a TAPTITE II® screw moves through the pilot hole in the nut material, it forms and work-hardens the nut thread metal producing an uninterrupted grain flow. By elastic recovery, metal fills in behind the lobe, providing a greater area of thread contact with exceptional vibration resistance and fastening strength.

TAPTITE 2000® Fasteners

TAPTITE 2000® Fasteners

TAPTITE 2000® fasteners are designed to provide the benefits of prior Taptite® fastener products with an innovative new thread design - the Radius Profile™ Thread. The proven Trilobular™ principle is maintained while incorporating the Radius Profile™ thread. The result is a new generation of TAPTITE 2000® fasteners, which provides excellent mechanical, assembly, and ergonomic characteristics surpassed by no other technology.

POWERLOK® TRILOBULAR™ Fasteners

POWERLOK® TRILOBULAR™ Fasteners

POWERLOK® TRILOBULAR™ thread-locking screws incorporate unique threads dimensioned to provide locking in tapped holes. A 30° thread-locking crest is superimposed on the normal 60° thread. This design, including a short tapered lead, allows hand starting in a tapped hole, adjustment and alignment of parts, and an exceptionally powerful locking action.

PLASTITE® TRILOBULAR™ Fasteners

PLASTITE® TRILOBULAR™ Fasteners

PLASTITE® TRILOBULAR™ threadrolling screws were developed specifically for use in plastics. They combine a unique TRILOBULAR™ cross-sectional form with deep, wide, spaced threads. Three swaging lobes with full relief of the thread form reduce driving effort and operator fatigue. The three-lobed design of PLASTITE® screws takes full advantage of the cold flow characteristics of many plastics by allowing plastic material to recover and fill in between the lobes. This establishes maximum resistance to vibrational loosening. In addition, the screws’ deep, coarsely-spaced threads provide a heavier shear area and deeper thread engagement in the plastic, further enhancing holding capabilities.

REMFORM® Screws

REMFORM® Screws

REMFORM® Screws Designed Primarily for Plastic Applications The REMFORM® Screw is a thread rolling fastener with a unique thread form to provide superior performance in today’s wide range of plastics. The asymmetrical thread minimizes radial hoop stress to reduce boss bursting. The narrow tip angle also reduces stress in the plastic nut member.

FASTITE® 2000™ Fasteners

FASTITE® 2000™ Fasteners

FASTITE® 2000™ thread forming screws were developed to create strong mechanical joints with excellent thread engagement into untapped thin sheets, while providing the "LOWER IN-PLACE COST SAVINGS" associated with TRILOBULAR™ thread forming screws. FASTITE® 2000™ screws result in a cost-effective joint with increased failure torque and resistance to stripping, when compared to other fastener types and assemblies.

The TRU-START® Standard Fastener

The TRU-START® Standard Fastener

Cross threading - it occurs every day in many factories as products are assembled with threaded fasteners. At some sites it is so common that for the more troublesome applications, special repair screws of the same pitch, but one size larger in diameter are stocked for replacement purposes. The rework and repair costs can be huge, but are often accepted as standard operating procedure. Now, there is a fastener designed to prevent cross threading and its associated costs - The TRU-START® fastener. The unique TRU-START® point design not only prevents cross threading in tapped holes, but also locates and aligns the fastener when entering a tapped hole. The absence of threads along one side of the fastener prevents the fastener from engaging more...
