I believe that many people can’t distinguish between bolts and stainless steel screws. Some people think of bolts and stainless steel screws as the same thing. In fact, the two are not the same. They are different. Here is the editor of Baide Special Alloys. Explain the difference between bolts and stainless steel screws, as follows:
Bolt: A type of fastener consisting of a head and a screw, which must be matched with a nut to fasten and connect two parts with through holes. This type of connection is called bolt connection. If the nut is unscrewed from the bolt, the two parts can be separated, so the bolt connection is a detachable connection.
Stud: There is no head, only a type of fastener with threads on both ends. When connecting, one end of it must be screwed into the part with internal threaded hole, the other end must pass through the part with through hole, and then the nut is screwed on, even if the two parts are tightly connected as a whole.
This type of connection is called a stud connection, which is also a detachable connection. It is mainly used where one of the connected parts has a large thickness, requires a compact structure, or is not suitable for bolt connection due to frequent disassembly.
Stainless steel screws: It is also a type of fasteners composed of two parts, the head and the screw. According to the purpose, it can be divided into three categories: machine stainless steel screws, fixed stainless steel screws and special purpose stainless steel screws. Jinjia Hardware tells you that the stainless steel screw of the machine is mainly used for a tightening threaded hole part, and a fastening connection between a part with a through hole, and no nut is required (this type of connection is called a stainless steel screw connection, also It is a detachable connection; it can also be matched with a nut to fasten the connection between two parts with through holes.) The tightening stainless steel screw is mainly used to fix the relative position between the two parts. Special-purpose stainless steel screws, such as ring screws, are used for hoisting parts.
