Detail & Specs
Torx Drive pan head screws have a wide head profile with chamfered / curved sides and a recessed torx drive.
Machine thread screws can be used in a tapped hole or with a locking / non-locking nut. Length is measured from underneath the head.
A six lobe torx wrench is used to install these screws, allowing access into spaces where a traditional external hex drive bolt would not fit.
Torx drive screws provide higher torque transfer because the driving forces are transferred to each surface of the six lobes (wobble-free), instead of the four edges of the four edges on a phillips drive. Additional benefits include less wear on tools and no damage to the surface coating.
Stainless machine screws are commonly used in damp or wet environments for corrosion resistance, popular across a wide range of industries: furniture, automotive, industrial machinery, architectural finish work, agriculture, food processing, clean energy, etc.
For any application involving marine (salt water), use A4 / 316 Stainless Steel material, available as a special order.
Also known as metric hexalobular socket pan head cap screw, raised cheese head torx screw, machine pan head torx drive screw.
