Elgin Fastener Group, a provider of system-critical engineered fasteners, provides several solutions including MAThread. MAThread and MATpoint use a patented thread design that prevents virtually all threaded fasteners from cross-threading and/or jamming during installation.
Thanks to its thread design, misaligned MAThread fasteners automatically become aligned with their mating parts and thread normally during assembly. By eliminating the need for initial hand threading, MAThread reduces assembly time and improves operator ergonomics. Additionally, these products eliminate torque “spikes” early in the fastener run-down, which makes torque monitoring and torque/angle control much more consistent.
MAThread products’ versatility also allows them to be widely used in the manufacture of trucks, motorcycles, snowmobiles, all-terrain vehicles, computers, printers, furniture, construction, heavy-duty engines, and earthmoving equipment.
Due to its unique properties, MATpoint has become the preferred standard screw for companies like General Motors, Chrysler, Mercedes Benz, and Volvo Cars. Learn more here.
