Metric machine screws are m available in quality grade A2 Stainless Steel. Available in Metric Phillips Flat Head Machine Screws, Metric Phillips Pan Head Machine Screws, Torx Pan Head Machine Screws. Metric A2 Stainless Steel is corrosion resistant and rust resistant. These screws are typically seen in a smaller size and require a hole to be tapped before they can be installed.
A metric machine screw is actually a metric bolt. With a flat point and many different styles, they can fit a large range of applications. These screws are commonly utilized in machinery giving them their name. They can be found in abundance in handheld electronics. Metric machine screws are referred to as screws because their drive style allows them to be driven with a screwdriver.

A fully threaded screw with unified machine thread and a blunt point. Usually used with a mating nut or driven into a pre-tapped hole. A large variety of head styles paired with numerous drives types allow for virtually unlimited uses.
Tikweld Welding Supplies and Services is the major supplier of Hellog Products in Nigeria. Our M3-0.50 Metric machine screws are made from A2 stainless steel and have a uniform diameter the entire length of the shaft as opposed to tapered screws which have a pointed tip; are primarily used with nuts or screwed directly into a threaded receptacle to fasten machine components, appliances and many more together. Designed for long lasting, exterior applications due to their corrosion resistance and durability

The metric system has been officially sanctioned for use in the United States since 1866, but it remains the only industrialized country that has not adopted the metric system as its official system of measurement. Many sources also cite Liberia and Burma as the only other countries not to have done so. Although the United Kingdom uses the metric system for most official purposes, the use of the imperial system of measure, particularly for use at home, is widespread and is permitted by the law.
Except for a few notable exceptions, such as the Chevrolet Corvette, most American car manufacturers use sheet metal screws and nylon snap-in nuts for both their front a rear license plates. Most European and Asian manufacturers use a metric machine screw with a threaded insert.
The license plate screws for the rear are usually different from the front, since there is frequently some sort of rear plate mounting bracket that is first attached to the car. The license plate is then attached to the bracket with machine screws.
Below are a few typical metric machine screw specifications for rear license plate fasteners. The shortest lengths are usually for a bare license plate, or plate with a thin metal frame with minimal depth.
Typically, the dealer will install some sort of plastic license plate holder with self-tapping (sheet metal) screws by drilling holes into your front bumper. Your license plate is then affixed to the plastic holder with more sheet metal screws.
Care must be taken to select a screw of the proper length, or you run the danger of scarring the bumper cover underneath (or actually puncturing the bumper cover). The correct hardware varies from manufacturer to manufacturer, and from model to model. Also, repeated removal of these screws will cause the plastic threads to deteriorate, requiring thicker screws for a secure fit.
As an example, I have a 2011 BMW 335i Coupe with the M Sport Package. I chose not to have the front plate installed (I live in California so had to sign a waiver assuming liability for the lack of a front plate). The dealer simply left the front bracket in the trunk when they delivered the car (no screws or instructions).
So, as noted above, measure your total plate/frame mount thickness carefully and choose the proper length screws accordingly. Oh, and ALWAYS measure the depth of your bracket holes before you blindly attempt to screw on your plate.
Be careful not to over-tighten license plate screws. Especially the ones that attach the OEM plate bracket (if available) to the rear of your car. Doing so could cause the plastic nut inserts to pull out, necessitating a trip to the dealer for a fix.
The practical issue, of course, is that no hardware store or building supply could possibly carry every conceivable screw size; and then triple their inventory with metric and stainless steel varieties.
BS3643 defines the limits and tolerances for ISO screw thread gauges. The standard is divided into two parts. Part 1 is based on ISO 965/1 and ISO 965/3 providing the principles and basic data for specifications of ISO metric screw threads.
This abbreviated format omits the pitch definition which means that the bolt has a coarse thread. Whenever the pitch dimension is omitted from a metric bolt specification then the bolt is always coarse threaded. This example (M12-50) has a diameter of 12mm and a length of 50mm.
As noted, the specification of metric bolts includes the definition of thread pitch, but if this is omitted then a coarse pitch is assumed. Metric fasteners are available with either coarse or fine thread pitches with some metric bolt sizes offering extra fine thread pitch options. It is worth noting that metric bolts with a coarse thread pitch have more threads per inch (they are more closely spaced) than comparable imperial bolts.
The length of a metric bolt is measured and defined in exactly the same way as imperial, inch-based bolts and fasteners. Socket head, pan head, button head and hex head bolts are measured from the underside of the bolt head to the end of the shaft. For flat head bolts, the length includes the bolt head height and for dome head bolts the length is measured from the thickest, highest point on the curved head.

One of the projects early in my career was a simple conversion from British to metric system. The key word is \"simple\" - all it takes is a few clicks on the 3D modelling / drafting software and voila - we have the drawing converted to metric! That would be the simplest portion, the dimensions. Yes, but would that drawing be actually manufacturable
Dimensioning is one aspect, making the part manufacturable to people understanding metric dimensioning is another that I will deal with later (mainly the task of converting tolerances and standard sizes).
In this post, I will deal with the one part - translate English threaded fasteners to Metric, machine crews to be more specific. Since we all know they done mate with each other, a mere conversion of UNC 4-40 to M3X.5 will not work because of the thread angle and pitch will differ. So we need to go about changing the mated and the mating parts (screw and nut), both. This leads to a cascading effect, we cannot just stop at one part or we will have a mix of English and Metric in the same assembly. This \"simple\" project ended up producing a whole new line of products for the European market (Metric followers), where not just the dimensions, but all the CFD and structural analysis, tolerance stack-up had to be redone for the entire line. Though the results were predictably favourable, the effort was far from it. Expected to take one engineer less than a month, I ended up leading an entire team of 3 new college graduates to finish the project in 2 months!
So, all that we did was go about changing all the self-clinch nuts, screws, washers, while maintaining the same type of head and drivers (of course the tools used will also have change to the metric equivalents), in retrospect, it was that simple!
One of the first design choices we run into in an assembly is to use fasteners or to weld the parts together. This may lead us to answer the \"why fasteners.\" Any two parts that serve some purpose when mated, but need to be disassembled in the future for service or maintenance will have to be fastened by screws, else we can just weld them in most cases. Also when two dissimilar materials need to be fastened, screws come into the picture. Circumstances allowing, I will always have two parts welded to each other to provide a strong, permanent bond. 59ce067264
