MAGTITE® 2000™ Fasteners
MAGTITE® 2000™ screws are TRILOBULAR® thread forming screws designed expressly for fastening magnesium die castings. Magnesium presents difficulties in the area of fastening, especially when using thread-forming fasteners.
MAGTITE® 2000™ screws have a TRILOBULAR® body configured to suit the low elasticity of magnesium, and a broad Radius Profile™ thread, which forms internal threads primarily by compressing the magnesium.
The compression action of the Radius Profile™ thread results in little to no debris generated during the thread-forming process in this friable material.
