Fastener Bolt Nut Screw

What are self tapping screws used for?

Self tapping screws are screws that can create their own threads as they are driven into a material, such as wood, plastic, or metal, without the need for a pre-drilled hole. This makes them a versatile fastening option for a variety of applications.

Self-tapping screws are commonly used in the construction industry for securing metal panels, as well as in woodworking and carpentry for joining pieces of wood together. They are also used in electronics, automotive, and medical device manufacturing.

In addition to their ability to create threads in the material, self-tapping screws also provide a secure hold and are resistant to loosening over time. They come in a range of sizes and types, including flat head, pan head, and round head, and can be made from a variety of materials, including stainless steel, brass, and aluminum.
