Cold-Headed Automotive Fasteners

Application specific by design, our Taptite® thread forming fasteners are used by world class manufacturers world wide. The unique Trilobular™ thread-rolling configuration of our fasteners helps to reduce chips, burrs and eliminate additional tapping costs. In both metal and plastic applications, the nut material fills in behind the lobes assuring exceptional holding power and easy working drive-to-strip ratio. In contrast to round bodied screws, our Trilobular™ radial relief reduces drive torque and makes deeper thread engagements practical, further increasing the holding strength.

Our Trilobular™ screws plus bolts used in ductile metal and castings, have high integrity mating threads, which produce ...


As part of our specialty fastening solutions, we manufacture a range of SEMS fasteners suitable for automotive and electronic assembly applications.
