Powertite®

Thread-forming in metals

For over 40 years the manufacturing industry has implemented thread-forming TRILOBULAR® screws. Such screws are distinctive for low tapping torque and excellent process reliability. And for many years thread-forming screws with round cross section have likewise been used. These screws generate higher load capacities. But when it comes to thread tapping they offer less process reliability.

The recently developed Powertite® screw combines the individual strengths of TRILOBULAR® and round screws to create a high load-bearing, process reliable unit

Benefits

When you use Powertite® screws, you save processing time and tooling and machinery costs. For example, you can miss out the machining center and the washing unit for the screw locations, which would be necessary for threaded screws. There‘s no need to purchase measuring instruments to check gauge sizes, and no additional locking elements are needed either.

Characteristics

The Powertite® screw is a round thread-forming screw with a polygonal tapping tip and can be used in steel, aluminum and other lightweight metals. Tapped nut thread has increased load-bearing capacity > 20% compared with TRILOBULAR® screws.

Advantages

  • Screw fastenings made with Powertite® screws have 20% more load-bearing capacity than conventional thread tapping screw fastenings with TRILOBULAR® screws.
  • When combined with an optimized low-friction coating, it is possible to introduce much higher clamping forces with Powertite® screws.
  • Powertite® screws generate a large delta between the screw-in torque and the overturn torque, ensuring a high level of assembly reliability.
  • With fewer strict clamp load requirements, there is also the possibility to increase core hole tolerances by a significant margin, thus enabling casting processes for lightweight metal components to become much more productive.
