Overview

Fastite® 2000™ screws feature a thread-forming design created to deliver cost-effective and optimum joint performance in sheet metal applications as thin as 0.7mm (.028 in.) This unique design employs many of the design innovations for high-performance thread-rolling fasteners featured in Taptite 2000® fasteners.

Feature

  • Tapered Thread Root Adjacent to Head
  • Undercut Head
  • Radius Profile™ Thread with Twin-lead Helix Angle
  • Blunt CA Point
  • Trilobular™ Body
  • Available with TORX PLUS® Drive System

Benefits

  • Maintains full thread major diameter close to the bearing surface
  • Absorbs material extruded by the screw and increases the underhead contact area to enhance thread engagement and resistance to stripping
  • Provides a mating thread system in which diametrically opposed threads are engaged
  • Provides low thread-forming torque with high resistance to failure
  • Head seats squarely compared to off-axis tendency of sheet metal screws
  • Allows entry into small holes to create self-extrusion of the sheet metal and to increase resistance to stripping
  • Provides resistance to loosening caused by vibration.
  • Significantly extends tool life
  • Ideal drive system for maximum torque transfer

Design Guidelines

  • Thread Style: Radius Profile™ thread with twin-lead helix angle
  • Head Styles: Hex flange undercut head
  • Drive Systems: All styles available; TORX PLUS® Drive System recommended
  • Point Style: Blunt CA point
  • Materials: Low carbon steel, medium carbon steel, alloy steel, stainless steel
