What to Look Forward to With Self-Tapping Screws

Productivity is everything in your operations. So, it only makes sense that you choose fasteners that will support your efforts to save time while still focusing on quality. At Bossard, we have the solution in the form of self-tapping screws.

Save on the Process

When you’re working with wood, plastic, or metal, you typically must drill a pilot hole before using a screw. This means that you have to change the bit on your screwdriver at least twice if not three times because of gaging the size.

With a self-tapping screw, you save time. This is because they drive their own hole. All you need is a screwdriver and the self-tapping screws. You can create perfectly fitted threads just like that.

Ideal in So Many Scenarios

You will find that self-tapping screws are great for use in a variety of scenarios. Particularly when you are fastening two materials together, you can use these.

You can choose the type of screw tip that works best for the scenario, too, including:

  • Blunt 
  • Flat
  • Sharp 
  • Piercing

Once you identify the type of tip that you need, the rest is, as they say, history.

Of course, there are a few things to know when you’re dealing with self-tapping screws. If you ever need to disassemble the application, stripping the screws is possible. When you reassemble, you would need a slightly larger screw. To avoid stripping, use a metal insert from the very beginning. This may be necessary if you plan on disassembling and assembling at any point in the life of your application.

Shop for What You Need

At Bossard, we have a wide array of self-tapping screws that you need to boost productivity and get the job done. These screws come in a variety of shapes and sizes like all the traditional screws you use.

The only difference is, when you begin using these, you’ll see that the time to get the job done decreases, as do labor costs.
