The fit and function of threaded fasteners is a complex topic, and rightfully so. Screw threads are one of engineering’s most fundamental joining methods, and regardless of the application, we expect threads to hold materials together tightly without failure. One of the metrics used to set the strength and reliability of a thread is its […]
