Fasteners are mechanical components used to join two or more objects. While other methods of joining exist, such as welding, brazing, adhesives, crimping, and more, many of these are examples of permanent joints. Fasteners form non-permanent joints and can be easily removed. Threaded fasteners are particularly effective at joining two objects thanks to their headed design. Threaded fasteners feature either internal or external screw threads, are easy to install, and just as easy to remove. The three most common types of threaded fasteners are screws, nuts, and bolts. In this blog, we will explain each of them, their unique characteristics, and their uses.
