Thread cutting screw with type 23 point style has fine threads that taper down to a blunt point with a large cutting surface suitable for soft metal, provides excellent chip clearance, and requires minimal rotating force to install
Steel is often used in applications where strength is the primary consideration
Zinc plating resists corrosion and has a reflective appearance
Flat undercut head has a flat top with an 82-degree cone-shaped bearing surface and is undercut for use in shallow countersunk holes
Phillips drive has an x-shaped slot that accepts a Phillips driver and is designed to prevent over-tightening
The steel thread cutting screw has a zinc plating, a Type 23 point style, and an 82-degree flat undercut head with a Phillips drive. The screw, also called a type T thread cutting screw, has fine threads and a type 23 point that tapers down to a blunt edge and directs chips out of the hole to prevent clogging. The large cutting surface is suitable for soft metals and enables screw installation with minimal rotating force. Steel is often used in applications where strength is the primary consideration. The zinc plating offers corrosion resistance and has a reflective appearance. The flat undercut head has a flat top with an 82-degree cone-shaped bearing surface and is undercut to a lower head height for use in shallow countersunk holes. The Phillips drive has an x-shaped slot that accepts a Phillips driver and is designed to allow the driver to slip out of the head to help prevent over-tightening and damage to the thread or fastener.
Thread cutting and thread rolling screws, two types of self-tapping screws, are threaded fasteners that create a mating thread in the wall of a hole. The two screws differ from each other in the way that they create the threads. Thread cutting screws cut the wall of the hole to create the thread, creating material chips that need to be cleared away from the hole to prevent clogging. Thread rolling screws, also called thread forming screws, do not remove material but instead press against the wall of the hole to displace the material and form the threads.
