MAGTITE® fasteners tap and fasten in a single operation, eliminating a costly secondary tapping operation.
Magnesium is a light weight non-ductile material which is prone to galling, cracking or tearing when a traditional thread forming fasteners are utilized to tap a secure thread.
The MAGTITE® fastener has consistent lead threads allowing an easy start feature and a thread form which compresses the material promoting significant resistance to vibration loosening.
Octolok® studs and nuts are Grade strength fasteners designed to provide external or internal threads in the most demanding applications including light gauge sheet materials.
Octolok® fasteners improve quality & reliability, simplify production processes and reduce the cost of assembly. Octolok® fasteners can replace weld-studs and eliminate painting/plating costs.
