Thread Forming Screws

Thread Forming Screws have a unique tri-lobular shape that forms a mating thread in an unthreaded pilot hole. The threads are work hardened as they are formed, providing a strong joint or assembly. The excess metal fills in behind the tri-lobular lobes to provide maximum contact and a secure assembly. The tri-lobular shape of the screw shank reduces friction during driving to assure low driving torque and also generates a prevailing torque that exceeds the level of a locking screw. The interference fit provides resistance to vibrational loosening.
