Thread-forming in metals.

TAPTITE 2000® is a thread-forming screw with outstanding mechanical, fastening and ergonomic characteristics that no other technology can aspire to. Compared with conventional screws, with TAPTITE 2000® you can reduce your overall fastening costs by up to 85%, partly because the cost of manufacture is drastically reduced: Many steps of the process can simply be omitted. The fastener is screwed straight into a cast or drilled core hole. Done!

Technology in application

Using TAPTITE 2000® ensures that in metal-joining applications, you can eliminate work processes such as forming and the use of additional fastening elements.

The trilobulare™ cross-section geometry of the shaft of the screw ensures that the thread is chiplessly formed, so that if a repair is needed it can accept
a conventional threaded screw.
It also provides significant quality advantages:

  • low forming torque
  • high vibration resistance
  • high pre-load forces
  • high assembly reliability
  • chipless thread-forming
  • total cost of fastening reduced by up to 85%

When you use TAPTITE 2000®, it's not just processing time – you also save money on tool and machine usage. For example the machining centre and the washing unit can be omitted for the screw locations, as would be necessary for threaded screws, and there's no need to purchase measuring instruments to check gauge sizes, and no additional locking elements are needed either.

Just how does thread-tapping in metals work?

The TAPTITE 2000® thread profile is similar to the involute shape of a gearwheel. Together with the triangular (trilobularen™) cross-section geometry of the screw's shaft, it greatly improves the mechanical properties of the screw fastening:
