The Different Types & Benefits of Metal Core Screws

The Different Types & Benefits of Metal Core Screws

Metal core screws are used in a variety of applications and industries. These screws are cold formed and precision constructed. They are knurled and display high strength. They provide excellent resistance to corrosion. They are also resistant to high vibrations, making them extremely useful in several industrial applications.

Types of Metal Core Screw Heads

The differenttypes of metal core screw heads generally available are:

1. Round Washer Code W 2. Round Code R 3. Fillister Code F 4. 82 Degree Flat Code A Metal Core Screws

The metal heads are designed to accept high speed and torque automatic screw drives.

Beneficial Features of Metal Core Screws

Metal core screws are favored because of the following reasons:

  • Metal core screws are useful in shear and double shear applications.
  • They are extremely cost-efficient and can be used in place of sleeved and cladded screws, brass fasteners, screw assemblies, and nylon fasteners.
  • These screws comprise reinforced cores. The cores allow the screws to be at least four times stronger to nylon screws.
  • The head is directly connected to the reinforced core, allowing easy and efficient tightening using power drivers.
Materials Used to Fabricate Metal Core Screws

Metal core screws are fabricated using a variety of materials. The materials are chosen according to the application and the environmental factors:

1. ABS CPVC Delrin 2. Nylon 6/6 PCTFE (Kel-F) PEE 3. 30% Glass-Filled PEEK-HT (High Temperature) 4. PEEK-UHP 5. Polycarbonate 6. PVDF (Kynar) 7. ULTEM 2300

Metal core screws are used in a variety of applications. They exhibit high levels of tensile strength and corrosion resistance. This makes them extremely reliable in applications. A manufacturer or supplier will be able to provide various size options fabricated with accurate dimensions.
