Counterbore Screw Market: Introduction
- Counterbore screws are threaded fasteners that are used in pre-drilled counterbored holes. The pre-drilled counterbored hole is a hole that has a long and narrow threaded channel at the bottom and a wider channel at the top. Counterbore screws are used in applications that require fasteners to sit flush to prevent the damage caused by the protruding head to the fastener and the object. Counterbore screws having a flat head and consistent diameter are used to sit flush when driven into a counterbored hole. The head of the counterbore screw stops once the screw becomes flush with the surface during the driving process.
- Counterbore screws are heat-treated alloy steel with a high tensile strength that generates higher clamp loads because they are torqued through an external drive or socket.
- Counterbore screws are widely used in automotive, electronics, shipbuilding, railway, and heavy equipment manufacturing industries, besides in aerospace, building & construction, home appliances, furniture, and other applications.
