Thread Forming Screws

Covered by ASME B18.6.4 1998 & SAE J81 1997 for Thread Rolling Fasteners. Thread forming tapping screws, also known as thread rolling screws, are generally for applications where large internal stresses are permissible, or desirable, to increase resistance to loosening.

APEX Fasteners provides a complete selection of thread cutting screw types to suit all requirements. Many different thread forming screws are available to lower assembly costs eliminating the need to drill and tap panels. These can be broadly categorized into thread forming screws for plastic and thread forming screws for metal.

Most fasteners can be provided with optional extras such as Sems versions, under the head nibs for locking or electrical conductivity, unrolled root diameter dog points, and partially threaded shanks for captivating in cover plates, or security drive systems.
