MATHREAD®


For reliable ergonomic assembly


THREADS LIKE A CHARM
– EVERY TIME!


MAThread® uses a patented thread design that prevents virtually all fasteners from cross threading during installation.
Thanks to its thread design, misaligned MAThread® fasteners automatically become aligned with their mating parts and thread normally during assembly.


By eliminating the need for initial assembly by hand, MAThread® reduces time and improves operator ergonomics.


Its unique properties have made MAThread® the preferred standard in major automotive industries. Well over 15 billion MAThread® products have already replaced standard fasteners.


Can you afford not to evaluate the MAThread® potential?

IMPROVED PRODUCT QUALITY


By avoiding cross threading, false threading, and paint interference, costly assembly problems disappear.


Each time one of these failures occur, the cost of scrap, re-work, and downtime, jumps. Fewer after market repairs mean lower warranty costs and increased profitability.

IMPROVED ERGONOMICS


With MAThread®, operators feel almost no feedback during early fastener run-down, since the lead threads of MAThread® fasteners are very similar to a ball bearing in shape.


There is a reduced level of frictional load being fed back into the operators hands. To operators installing thousands of fasteners per shift, this ergonomic improvement is a very significant benefit.

A NEW STANDARD TO AUTOMOTIVE MANUFACTURERS


MAThread® is rapidly becoming the standard screw for companies like General Motors, Chrysler, Mercedes Benz, and Volvo Car Corp.


It is also used in the manufacture of for example trucks, motorcycles, snowmobiles, all-terrain vehicles, computers, printers, furniture, construction, heavy-duty engines, and earthmoving equipment.


IMPROVED TORQUE CONTROL


MAThread® thread design eliminates torque “spikes” early in the fastener run-down, which makes torque monitoring and torque/angle control much more consistent.

A MONEY-SAVER


MAThread® improves the in-place-cost of an assembly. It dramatically reduces installation time, since there is no need for manual initial threading. And it practically eliminates cost for waste, rework, and warranty repairs associated with conventional metric joints.




Simplified assembly improves ergonomics. Healthier employees will boost your productivity.
