Save time and money with Taptite thread forming screws
26 May 2010
Taptite 2000 thread forming screws from Arnold Umformtechnik contribute up to 88 per cent cost savings in threaded fastener assembly. According to the results of various studies, 85 per cent of the total cost of a conventional threaded fastener joint arises from secondary costs such as drilling, thread cutting, inspection, tools and workstation cleaning. The actual fastening components account for only 15 per cent of the total cost.
With Taptite 2000 costly assembly processes can be eliminated. The non-cutting formation of the nut thread with Taptite is a particular cost-saver. Furthermore, downstream operations such as cleaning and inspection are no longer necessary. Drilling operations can also be eliminated with pre-cast core holes.
Taptite 2000 users also benefit of the improved mechanical properties of the assembled joint. The trilobular shank form and radius-profile thread flanks result in around 50 per cent lower thread forming torque than with conventional thread forming screws, which translates into higher clamping force together with a smaller statistical spread of clamping forces.
