Although self-tapping screws have become common because of their convenience, people typically have several questions about how they work. All Points Fasteners is here to help! Can You Use a Self-Tapping Screw in the Same Hole Twice? The following principles should be considered when specifying a plastic fastener to have a successful joint. In fact, it isn’t unusual for all the terms to be used and mixed interchangeably for any screw-type fastener that doesn’t have a flat bottom, despite the differences among them. The three types described here work in similar ways, and some specialty screws have twin or dual characteristics and functions. Medical: We don’t think of our bodies as a place where screws would go, but that’s exactly what happens in any number of replacements and other kinds of repair surgery. Medical articles routinely mention self-tapping screws and expound on their functionality for fastening parts inside the body. For example, dental implants that attach by screwing into the jaw bone are big, self-tapping screws with a tooth or teeth on top.

With thin wings wider than the thread formed behind the self-drilling head, the winged self-tapper will cut a clearance hole in soft materials like wood or plastic. Be aware, though, that they can be destroyed by materials which are more robust, such as metal. The Drywall Screw Self-tapping screws for plastics, as the name implies, form or tap its threads when screwed into the plastic material with either pre-drilled or moulded pilot holes. These provide an economical method of joining two plastics or metal to plastic and allow easy disassembly and reassembly. Self-tapping screws for plastic (Credit:stanleyengineeredfastening.com) Aluminium has many positive characteristics that make it easy to work with. When using self-tapping screws on aluminium, choose a self-tapping screw with a drill-like point and sharp cutting blade threads that extend down the whole length of the screw. These self-tapping screws are designed to keep thin metal from denting.Self-drilling screws, on the other hand, work as both a fastener and a drill bit. For that reason, they don’t require a pilot hole due to the drill bit end, and they were designed to secure thin pieces of metal together. Ideal for completing frame work on a car, for instance, they can also help you when affixing sheet metal to a metal frame. Can you reuse a self-tapping screw in the same hole? Self-drilling screws and self-tapping fasteners aren’t the same. While self-tapping screws will tap a hole into a soft material, self-drilling screws are capable of drilling a hole into anything from sheet metal to wood. There’s a huge range of different types of self-tapping fasteners and each can be set apart by a designation which describes its point (tip) and threads. Here are the most common self-fasteners and how you might use them in your applications: The Sheet Metal Screw

Why might you need a self-tapping fastener? In some cases, for example when using sheet metal, it isn’t possible to tap a hole as the material may be too thin. You may also require self-tapping fasteners if you can’t gain rear access to install a nut. In both these instances, self-tapping fasteners ensure you can get the job done smoothly and effectively. Understanding types and materials of which they are applied is vital - for example if you are using self-tapping screws for aluminium, they don't need pre-drilling and are easily removed without any damage caused to the metal. And, actually, they can be reused in the same material.Fastenright thread forming screws for plastic (FasPlas) are designed for use on thermoplastic materials, and will slice through plastic with minimal stress and low installation torque. If the letter ‘B’ in a screw’s designation – for example, type AB or B – has spaced threads, while if the ‘B’ is absent (for instance, Type F), machine screw threads are present. Having said that, there are two exceptions, with Type A having spaced threads, and Type U (metallic drive screws) featuring spaced spiral threads. It’s worth knowing that while Type A is still available, it can be harder to come by.

Forced under pressure into the material you’re using, Type U metallic drive screws have spaced spiral threads and a blunt tip – and while this type of screw is considered permanent, others can be easily taken out. The Winged Self-Tapper What is a self-tapping fastener and how can it improve the way you work? Able to tap its own hole as it’s driven into the material – be it wood, plastic or metal – the cleverly-designed component can be used in a variety of different applications. Pilot hole diameter and thread engagement – The pilot hole diameter and the diametrical thread engagement will go hand in hand. The amount of thread flank depth filled by the material is referred to as thread engagement and represented as a percentage. Never use 100% thread engagement as it will increase the torque required and does not improve the joint performance. As a rule of thumb, 75%-80% of thread engagement is used on stiff materials to achieve a good joint. All hardware stores that are in fact worth the name possess a broad array of things like wood screws and nails and bolts and tools for using these items. To make matters even much more difficult, every kind of securer and tool may possess a somewhat unique technique to using it correctly. Let us consider a look at how you should probably make use of wood screws and what you do not do using wood screws.The advantage of self-tapping screws for aluminium is that they don't need pre-drilling and are easily removed without damaging the metal. They can also be reused in the same material. All polymers will creep or irreversibly distort when subjected to long term stress or heat. This creep will result in a loss of clamp load. The graph shows a standard self-tapping screw for plastic losing clamping load over time. Creep rate of self-tapping screws for plastics (Credit:stanleyengineeredfastening.com) This key difference is self-drilling screws have a tip like a drill bit, so they do not need a pilot hole. The fact that they can drill and tap their own hole into harder materials saves you using two tools, when this one component will do both jobs.

A self-tapping screw is designed to form its own threads as you drive it into a material such as wood, plastic or metal. In the past, you had to drill a guide hole before driving in whatever kind of screw would be used. Self-tapping screws create their own hole as pressure is exerted on them. They also provide a close, tight grip and a degree of certainty that the hole and screw fit exactly.There are millions of kinds of fasteners, and knowing the best type to use is a point of quality and a boost to businesses. There are similarities and differences between self-tapping, self-piercing and self-drilling screws. The thread, head and tip distinguish one from the other, as well as the intended use of the fastener. Self-tapping screws are grouped under two groups viz.: thread forming and thread cutting. The selection of screw-type will depend on its application requirement, material type and properties. There are a lot of trademarked and patent designs from various companies such as Stanley, EPOK, TR fasteners etc. All the manufacturers have options with different thread profile angles (30-45-48 degrees) to suit the range of flexural modulus of plastics. Thread forming Self-tappers are often used in sheet-metal applications where one-sided access is an issue. This might be applicable in automotive, aviation and other industries. The technology has overcome what used to be a challenge for many industries — fastening together thin metal safely with a screw. Self-tapping screws are used for a wide range of applications involving steel and aluminum, as well as alloys and mixed applications. They handle metal gauges from about 24 through 30. The stripping torque to tapping torque ratio should be at least 3-1 or around 5-1 for automated high volume manufacturing Self-tapping screws are known for their ability to drill their own hole as they go along, as opposed to drilling a pilot hole like with flat-ended screws. They can have a sharp or blunt tip. A sharp tip is usually for drilling into softer materials, such as wood or plastic, without having to drill a pilot hole. The blunt tip helps your success rate when drilling into something harder, like metal. Self-tapping zip screws are especially useful for projects involving metal buildings or gutters, for example.
