Threaded fasteners: what they are, advantages and featuresThreaded fasteners are essential components used in every modern industry. These elements are designed with threads that allow them to be screwed or unscrewed into other components, ensuring a secure and stable connection.

With this article, we at Gel Giussani will explore these components, starting with their definition and continuing with their main features and benefits.

Threaded fasteners: what are they?

Threaded fasteners are mechanical devices designed to join and fasten parts or components together. Compared to other types of fasteners, these particular elements have the characteristic of being equipped with threads, which can be internal or external, which allow them to be screwed or unscrewed in other components.

Some of the most common examples of threaded fasteners include tie rods, studs, eye bolts and U-bolts. These components are widely used in a wide range of industries: from the automotive industry to agriculture, from the petrochemical sector to construction and industrial plant engineering.

Characteristics of threaded fasteners

Compared with other types of fasteners, threaded fasteners have unique characteristics. First, it is important to note that they can be fitted with different types of threads, the most common of which are triangular, square and trapezoidal threads.

The triangular thread, used by us at Gel Giussani, is commonly employed as a “connecting” method. Characterized by an angle between the threads of 60°, this thread can have either a flat or rounded thread crest. It offers good resistance to part separation and provides a stable connection.

As mentioned earlier, threaded fasteners can adapt to the specific needs of different applications, as they can be made from a wide range of materials including stainless steel, hot-dip galvanized steel, and brass. The choice of the most suitable material depends on the properties required by the specific application, such as corrosion resistance, mechanical strength and thermal conductivity.

For example, stainless steel is known for its high resistance to corrosion; consequently, threaded fasteners used in the chemical and petrochemical industries, and all industries characterized by outdoor exposure in harsh environments such as marine, will need to be made from this type of material.

In this context, we at Gel Giussani have a qualified team that can provide the most suitable solution based on the specific application of the component.

Advantages of threaded fasteners

Advantages of threaded fastenersThreaded fasteners offer a number of significant advantages.

First, they provide a strong and stable connection due to threads that allow even load distribution, thus reducing stress on the connected parts. This leads to greater overall system strength in the long run.

In addition, the threaded fasteners can be easily screwed or unscrewed. This makes installation and removal quick and easy, reducing the time and effort required to assemble or disassemble parts.
