FASTITE® 2000™

For thin sheet metal assembly


A BETTER CHOICE FOR JOINING THIN SHEET METAL


Efforts to reduce size and weight of thin sheet metal and fasteners have presented a challenge to the assembly experts. Sheet metal less than 1 millimetre thick is not uncommon in a typical cabinet assembly.


FASTITE® 2000™ thread forming screws were developed to create strong mechanical joints with excellent thread engagement into untapped thin sheets. The unique FASTITE® 2000™ design results in joints with increased failure torque and resistance to stripping.


It’s a cost-effective choice for excellent joint quality.


Can you afford not to evaluate the FASTITE® 2000™ potential?

A MONEY-SAVER


FASTITE® 2000™ is a cost-efficient alternative to standard thin metal sheet assembly concepts. It eliminates the use of weld nuts, which also reduces weight and limits the number of components used in the manufacturing process.


Above all, it reduces QA issues, thanks to its excellent joint quality.

A SMALL SCREW FOR STRONG CONNECTIONS


FASTITE® 2000™ thread forming screws are designed to solve common fastening problems such as screw stripping, fastener alignment and consistent assembly performance.




IMPROVED ERGONOMICS


Standard ST screws often have sharp points that can cause injuries to people and be harmful to cables or other equipment in the finished product. These problems are eliminated when using FASTITE® 2000™ screws.


THE FASTITE® 2000™ PRINCIPLE


  

Twin lead helix provides starting stability.


 

Forward extrusion with diametrically opposed
thread engagement.


 

Increased core diameter approaching the underside
of the head causes additional forward and backward
extrusion providing increased thread engagement.
