Taptite 2000® high-performance thread-rolling screws form internal threads into plain holes in ductile materials upon initial installation. They feature higher strength internal threads thanks to the cold flow/work hardening that occurs during the forming of the nut thread.
The Taptite 2000® design eliminates the need to pre-tap the nut member and reduces problems associated with assembling screws and bolts into pre-tapped holes, such as cross-threading.
Radius Profile™ thread lowers thread-forming torque without sacrificing performance. It also yields a higher, more uniform drive-to-fail ratio and an increased drive-to-strip ratio.
Taptite 2000® fasteners are specially designed to lower in-place fastening costs.
