Chapter 1. measurement

There are two main measurement units of length in the world today. One is the metric system. The measurement units are meter (m), centimeter (CM) and millimeter (mm). They are widely used in Europe, China, Japan and other Southeast Asian regions. The other is the British system. The main unit of measurement is inch, which is equivalent to the market size of China’s old system. It is widely used in the United States, Britain and other European and American countries.
1. Metric measurement: (decimal)
1m =100 cm=1000 mm
ls 1 - Basic knowledge of standard fasteners
2. English Measurement: (base 8)

  • 1 inch = 8 English minutes
  • 1 inch = 25.4 mm
  • 3/8¢¢ ×25.4 = 9.52

3. For products with less than 1/4¢¢ and less, their address diameter is indicated by serial number, such as: 4#, 5#6#7#8#10#12#

Chapter 2. Thread

1. Screw thread is a kind of shape with uniform helix bulge on the cross section of the outer or inner surface of a solid. It can be divided into three categories according to its structural characteristics and uses.

  • 1) Common thread: the tooth shape is triangle, which is used to connect or fasten parts. The common thread can be divided into coarse thread and fine thread according to pitch, and the connection strength of fine thread is higher.
  • 2) Transmission thread: trapezoidal, rectangular, saw shaped and triangular.
  • 3) Sealing thread: used for sealing connection, mainly pipe thread, taper thread and taper pipe thread.

2. Thread fit grade:
Thread fit is the loose or tight size between screw threads, and the fit grade is the specified combination of deviation and tolerance acting on internal and external threads.
(1) For unified inch screw thread, there are three thread grades for external thread: 1a, 2a and 3a, and three grades for internal thread.
Class 1b, 2b and 3b are all clearance fit. The higher the grade number, the tighter the fit. In English screw threads, the deviation is only specified as class 1a and 2a, Grade 3A is zero, and class 1a and 2a are equal.
The larger the number of grades, the smaller the tolerance, as shown in the figure:
ls 3 - Basic knowledge of standard fasteners

  • Grade 1a and 1b, very loose tolerance grade, suitable for tolerance fit of internal and external threads.
  • Grade 2a and 2b are the most common thread tolerance grades specified for English series mechanical fasteners.
  • Grade 3A and 3b, spin to form the tightest fit, suitable for tight tolerance fasteners, for safety critical design.
  • For external threads, there is a fit tolerance for grades 1a and 2a, but not for class 3a. Class 1A tolerances are 50% greater than class 2A tolerances and 75% larger than class 3A tolerances. For internal threads, class 2B tolerances are 30% greater than 2A tolerances. Grade 1b is 50% larger than grade 2B and 75% higher than grade 3B.

(2) There are three kinds of thread grades for external thread: 4h, 6h and 6G, and there are three kinds of thread grades for internal thread: 5h, 6h and 7h. (the precision grade of Japanese standard thread is divided into three levels: I, II and III, and generally it is grade II). In metric thread, the basic deviation of H and H is zero. The basic deviation of G is positive and that of E, F and G is negative. As shown in the figure:ls 4 - Basic knowledge of standard fasteners

  • H is the position of tolerance zone commonly used for internal thread, which is not used as surface coating or extremely thin phosphating layer. The basic deviation of G position is used in special occasions, such as thick coating, which is seldom used.
  • G is often used for plating 6-9um thin coating. For example, if the product drawing requires 6h bolt, the 6G tolerance zone is adopted for the thread before plating.
  • The best combination of thread matching is H / g, H / h or g / h. for the screw thread of refined fastener such as bolt and nut, 6h / 6G fit is recommended.

(3)The main geometric parameters of mechanical thread are as follows:
1) Major diameter / tooth outer diameter (D, d): it is the imaginary cylinder diameter where the external thread top or internal thread bottom coincide. The major diameter of the thread basically represents the nominal diameter of the thread size.
2) (D 2, D 2): D 2 = D 2 = D (d) – 2x3h / 8, where h is the height of the original triangle:
3) Diameter / base diameter (D1, D1): refers to the diameter of the imaginary cylinder with the top of external thread or internal thread. H = (√ 3 / 2) P = 0.866025p (60o yashanjiao); H = 0.960491p (55o yashanjiao)
4) Screw pitch (P): refers to the axial distance between two corresponding points on the middle diameter line of adjacent teeth or the distance between adjacent teeth or two adjacent teeth valleys.

In English system, the number of teeth per inch (25.4 mm) is used to indicate the pitch (table below).

5) The profile half angle (α / 2): the angle between the tooth side and the vertical line of the thread axis. The half angle of the common thread is 60o / 2, and that of the Webster thread is 55o / 2. Generally speaking, the angle of the screw tooth is 60 o and the angle of the tail tip is 60 o.
6) Thread turning length: it refers to the length of two-phase matching thread and the length of mutually rotating parts along the thread axis direction.

(4)The main geometric parameters of self tapping and self drilling thread are as follows:

  • The major diameter / tooth diameter (D1) is the imaginary cylinder diameter of the overlap of the screw crown. The major diameter of the thread basically represents the nominal diameter of the thread size.
  • Minor diameter / tooth base diameter (D2): it is the imaginary cylinder diameter with the thread base overlapping.
  • Tooth distance (P): it is the axial distance between two points corresponding to the middle meridian line of adjacent teeth. In English, the number of teeth per inch (4mm) is used to indicate the pitch.

Chapter 3. materials

1、 At present, the standard parts in the market are mainly made of carbon steel, stainless steel and copper.
(1) Carbon steel. We distinguish low carbon steel, medium carbon steel, high carbon steel and alloy steel by carbon content in carbon steel.

  • 1. Low carbon steel C% ≤ 0.25% is usually called A3 steel in China. It is called 1008101510181022 in foreign countries. It is mainly used for grade 4.8 bolts, grade 4 nuts, small screws and other products without hardness requirements. (Note: the drill tail nail is mainly made of 1022 material.)
  • 2. Medium carbon steel 0.25% < C% ≤ 0.45% is usually called No.35 and No.45 steel in China, and it is basically called 1035, ch38f, 1039, 40ACr, etc. in foreign countries. It is mainly used for Grade 8 nuts, grade 8.8 bolts and grade 8.8 hexagon products.
  • 3. High carbon steel C% > 0.45%. At present, it is basically not used in the market
  • 4. Alloy steel: adding alloy elements to ordinary carbon steel, increasing some special properties of steel, such as 35, 40 Cr Mo, SCM435, 10b38. The main components of Pan Wo screw are C, Si, Mn, P, s, Cr and mo.

3、 Influence of various elements in materials on properties of steel:

  • 1. Carbon (c): improve the strength of steel parts, especially its heat treatment properties, but with the increase of carbon content, plasticity and toughness decrease, and will affect the cold heading performance and welding performance of steel parts.
  • 2. Manganese (MN): to improve the strength of steel parts, and to a certain extent improve the hardenability. In other words, the strength of hardening infiltration is increased during quenching, and the surface quality can be improved by manganese, but too much manganese is unfavorable to ductility and weldability. And it will affect the control of plating.
  • 3. Nickel (Ni): improve the strength of steel parts, improve the toughness at low temperature, improve the atmospheric corrosion resistance, and ensure stable heat treatment effect, reduce the effect of hydrogen embrittlement.
  • 4. Chromium (CR): it can improve the hardenability, wear resistance, corrosion resistance and strength at high temperature.
  • 5. Molybdenum (MO): it can help to control the hardenability, reduce the sensitivity of steel to temper brittleness, and has a great influence on improving the tensile strength at high temperature.
  • 6. Boron (b): improves hardenability and contributes to the desired reaction of mild steel to heat treatment.
  • 7. Alum (V): refine austenite grain and improve toughness.
  • 8. Silicon (SI): to ensure the strength of steel parts, appropriate content can improve the plasticity and toughness of steel parts.

4、 Brief introduction to the properties of stainless steel (304, 316)
The three materials are 300 series austenitic stainless steel, and their chemical compositions are as follows:

Name C Si Mn P S Ni Cr Mo Cu
304M ≤0.06 ≤1.0 ≤2.0 ≤0.045 ≤0.03 8.91-10.0 18.0-20.0 0 0
316 ≤0.03-0.06 ≤1.0 ≤2.0 ≤0.045 ≤0.03 10.0-14.0 16.0-18.0 2.0-3.0 0
304HC ≤0.08 ≤1.0 ≤2.0 ≤0.045 ≤0.03 8.0-10.5 17.0-19.0 0 1.0-3.0

The relationship between main chemical composition and properties of stainless steel is as follows
1. Carbon C can increase hardness and strength, but too high content will reduce its ductility and corrosion resistance
2. Chromium and chromium can increase corrosion resistance, oxidation resistance, grain refinement, strength, hardness and wear resistance
3. Ni can increase high temperature strength and corrosion resistance, and reduce the rate of cold work hardening
4. Molybdenum and molybdenum have good corrosion resistance to oxides and seawater
5. Copper and copper are good for cold forming and reduce magnetism

Other properties of materials

1. The above materials are normal and non-magnetic. After cold working, 304m has a little magnetism (about 1.6u-2.0u), 304HC is (about 1.01u-1.6u), and 316 material is less than 1.01u after cold working.
2. All materials have good ductility, easy to cold processing, tensile strength, yield strength, can meet the requirements. (TS tensile strength min 700n / mm, ys yield strength min 450N / mm)

Conclusion

1. 304m, 304HC and 316 are the most widely used materials of 300 series austenitic stainless steel. The magnetic properties of the materials after cold working are 316 < 304HC < 304m. 316 material has better chemical resistance, pitting corrosion resistance and seawater corrosion resistance than 304m and 304HC.
2. In a word, the characteristics of stainless steel standard parts are corrosion-resistant, beautiful and hygienic, but their strength and hardness are equivalent to carbon steel (grade 6.8) under normal conditions. Therefore, the stainless steel products shall not be impacted, knocked, and their surface finish and precision shall be maintained. Moreover, the force shall not be applied arbitrarily or too much force shall be applied as carbon steel products The generated steel chips are easy to stick to the nut grade, increase the friction force, and easily lead to locking. However, even if the carbon steel produces iron chips, it will fall down, which is not easy to lock compared with stainless steel.

Including performance grade and factory standard. Carbon steel: strength grade mark code consists of two parts separated by “·”. The meaning of the number before “·” in the mark code indicates the nominal tensile strength, for example, “4” of grade 4.8 represents 1 / 100 of the nominal tensile strength of 400N / mm2. The meaning of “·” and the number after the point indicates the yield ratio, that is, the ratio of nominal yield point or nominal yield strength to nominal tensile strength. For example, the yield point of grade 4.8 product is 320 n / mm2. The strength grade mark of stainless steel products is composed of two parts separated by “-“. The symbol before “-” in the sign code indicates the material. For example, A2, A4 and other signs indicate strength after “-“, such as A2-70

Fine teeth are divided into double teeth and double teeth single out and high and low teeth. Generally speaking, the angle of cusp is 60o and the angle of tail tip is 25O± 3O. However, some customers require the angle to be 45O± 5O.

Specifications Coarse teeth Fine teeth
Number of teeth Distance between teeth Number of teeth Distance between teeth
6 9 2.82 18 1.41
7 9 2.82 16 1.59
8 9 2.82 15 1.69
10 8 3.18 12 2.11

(2) Since the wall panel nail (fine tooth) has the requirement of attack speed, and the crack of tail tip, over pointed tail tip, blunt tail and burning of tail tooth may lead to insufficient attack speed. Therefore, the following table is specially made for the attack speed:

Address diameter D Thrust/KG Plate thickness/mm Attack time (max)/S Speed/rpm
2.9 12 0.6 1.5 2500-3000
3.5 15 1.0±0.10 2.5
3.9 2.5
4.2 3.0
4.8 3.5

4. Length:
(1) For products with a length of more than 3 / 8in, the lower limit of dimensional tolerance is generally taken. If the length L is less than 2 in (50 mm in metric system), they are all full tooth (LT) products. The tooth length is 2 in when the address is 2 in to 3 in long, and 2-1 / 2 when the tooth length is more than 3 in. The tooth length is 2 / 3 of the address length. LT = 2 / 3 × L.
(2) Products with a length of more than 4 in (100 mm in metric system) are easy to bend, so there is a requirement for runout. There are two forms of bending: one is caused by rolling teeth, that is, bending from the first tooth, and the other is caused by heat treatment, that is, the whole arc is formed.
(3) Drilling tail screw
1. Reference standards: ANSI / ASME b18.6.4, DIN7504.
2. At present, the common types of drilling tail screw head are hexagonal Huasi head (HW), pan head (P) and flat head (f).
3. There are mainly BD teeth and CD teeth. The difference between them is that BD teeth are ab teeth in self tapping screws, while CD teeth are mechanical teeth.
4. Length: when the address length is less than 1-1 / 2 in, it is full tooth; when it is more than 1-1 / 2 in, it is half tooth, and the tooth length is 1-1 / 2 in.
5. Introduction to BSD and CSD screws:
(1) The screw of BSD type should have pitch thread and bit end with different shapes. The drill bit is usually No.2 or No.3, and its design is suitable for different plate thickness conditions. When the nominal length is equal to or less than 1.50 inches, all screws are full thread screws. The empty thread under the head, including the thread ending, should be 1 pitch, and if possible, it should be smaller.
(2) CSD screw is a kind of machine screw thread. The combination of its diameter and pitch is similar to the unified thread, and the end of drill bit with different shapes is marked as No. 2 or no. 3. Its design type is suitable for different plate thickness conditions. CSD type screw does not need to accept thread measurement, but should meet the size specified in the standard. Generally, the screw thread ratio of machine screw to pitch thread is used CSD type screw should be used where the nominal length of CSD screw is equal to or less than 1.50in. The screw with the thread blank under the head, including the thread ending, should be one pitch or less.
6. Selection of BSD and CSD screw clamping die:
Under normal conditions, No.2 tail is used for less than 6 × 10, No.3 tail is used for more than 8 × 10, No.2 tail is used when the specification length of 8 × 10 × 10 × is less than 1 / 2 (including) (when the length of flat head is less than 5 / 8 (inclusive), No.2 tail is made, and No.3 tail is made when the length of other 10 × 10 exceeds this specification. In addition, the minimum length required for flat head BSD 2 and 3 tail is as follows:

ls 12 - Basic knowledge of standard fasteners
7. Requirements of screw tapping speed
The main characteristic of the drilling tail screw is penetration. If the diameter of the tool is too small, the surface hardness is too low, and the tail clamping is not good, the attack speed may be insufficient. Saej78 and DIN7504 have the following regulations on attack speed:

(4) Splint nail
1. Reference standard: customer requirements
2. Head type: at present, the common ones are flat head, pan head and large flat head. The groove type is mostly rice groove and plum blossom groove.
3. Tooth type: the angle of splint nail and Yashan is 400, one side is 250 and the other side is 150, so that the product has a certain self-locking function. The angle of tail tip is 250 ± 30 or 340 ± 30, and the angle of tail tip is 340 ± 30 in general short size. The tooth base of three splint nail is generally smooth without iron filings. Because the product is not smooth, it is difficult to screw the product into the hard wood. At the same time, there will be breakage phenomenon, that is, the screw in test may not meet the requirements. In addition, if there is iron filings, it can not be plated to the substrate during electroplating. When the screw is screwed into the wood, the iron filings will fall off, which makes the matrix easy to corrode and cause the product to rust.
(5) Machine screw:
1. Reference standard:
(1) 85 (GBO) – 9685 (GBO) – 9685 (GBO) – 9685 (GBO) – 9685 (GBO) – 9685 (GBO) – 9685 (GBO) – 9685 (GBO) – 9685 (GBO) – 9685 (GBO) – 9685 (GBO) – 9685 (GBO) – 9685 (GBO) – 9685 (GBO) – 9685 (GBO) – 9685 (GBO) – 9685 (GBO) – 9685 (GBO) – 9685 (GBO) – 9685 (GBO) – 968 (GB0 +), gb6 (GBO) – 9685 (GBO) – 968 (GB0 +), GB0 (gb0-85), gbo-9685 (GB0 +), GB0 (gb0-
(2) British system: ANSI / ASME b18.6.3
2. Head type: like self tapping screw, there are three head types in the new and old national standards, including round head (R), countersunk head (f) and semi countersunk head (o) in the old national standard, and pan head (P), countersunk head and semi countersunk head in the new national standard. The head type of English machine screw is the same as that of British self tapping screw, and there are several head types as follows:

Chapter 4. surface defects

1、 The bad phenomenon and reason analysis of the leading.

  • 1. Eccentricity: poor installation of the second punch and improper adjustment.
  • 2. Tilt head: improper installation and adjustment.
  • 3. The head is not round: the selection of a punching die is improper or the forming of one punch is not full enough.
  • 4. Punching crack: die cracking or improper R-angle, which causes the die to be scratched by two impacts.
  • 5. Head double layer: one punch molding is poor.
  • 6. Burr: a poor stamping, mainly due to the gap between the punch and the die hole is too large or the punch bar is too short.
  • 7. Crack angle: the needle is broken or the second punch is not heavy with the punch.
  • 8. Head cracking: material problems, or the use of a die error (such as a pan head with hexagonal Huasi head die), and the cause of lubricating oil.

2、 Analysis of the causes of tooth rolling

  • 1. Processing crack: worn tooth plate and improper adjustment.
  • 2. Blunt tail: improper adjustment, too old tooth plate.
  • 3. Burning: the distance between the two dental plates is too large, or the feeding time is not correct.
  • 4. Skewed tail: the control screw on the die holder is too tight.
  • 5. Broken tail: tooth plate wear and improper adjustment.
  • 6. Insufficient tooth mountain: improper adjustment
  • 7. The tail teeth were not rubbed to the tip of the tail.
  • 8. Crooked rod: the correction block is not well corrected.
  • 9. The tooth base is rough: the tooth space is not adjusted well.

Part IV technological process

Chapter 1. annealing

1、 Objective: to adjust the crystal structure, reduce the hardness and improve the processability at room temperature by heating the wire to a proper temperature, holding a certain time, and then cooling slowly.
2、 Operation process:
(1) Feeding: lift the products to be treated in the furnace, and pay attention to the furnace cover. Generally, one furnace can process 7 rolls (about 1.2 tons / roll) at the same time.
(2) Heating: slowly raise the temperature in the furnace (about 3-4 hours) to the specified temperature.
(3) Heat preservation: 1018 and 1022 wires are kept at 680 ℃ – 715 ℃ for 4-6h, 10b211039 is used, and ch38f wire is kept for 5.5-7.5h at 740 ℃ – 760 ℃.
(4) Cooling: slow down the temperature in the furnace (about 3-4 hours) to below 550 ℃, and then cool down to normal temperature with the furnace.
3、 Quality control:
1. Hardness: the hardness of 1018 and 1022 wire after annealing is hv120-170, and that of medium carbon wire is hv120-180 after annealing.
2. Appearance: no oxide film and decarburization on the surface.

Chapter 2. pickling

1、 Objective: to remove the oxide film on the surface of wire rod and form a layer of phosphate film on the metal surface, so as to reduce the scratch of tools and dies during wire drawing, cold block or forming.
2、 Operation process:
(1) Acid pickling: immerse the whole pan into three hydrochloric acid tanks with 20-25% concentration at room temperature for several minutes to remove the oxide film on the surface of wire rod.
(2) Clean water: remove the hydrochloric acid corrosion products on the wire surface.
(3) Oxalic acid: increase the activity of metal to make the skin film formed in the next process more compact.
(4) Coating treatment: the pan element is immersed in phosphate, and the steel surface contacts with the formation treatment solution, and the steel dissolves to form insoluble compounds (such as zn2fe (PO4) 2 · 4H2O) and adheres to the steel surface to form a skin film.
(5) Clean water: remove the residue on the surface of skin film.
(6) Lubricant: because the friction coefficient of phosphate film is not very low, it can not give sufficient lubricity during processing, but react with metal soap (such as sodium soap) to form a hard metal soap layer, which can improve its lubricating performance.

Part V standards and specifications

Standards are norms, and each country and department has its own standards. At present, the most commonly used standards in our daily business are as follows:

  • GB-china national standard (GB)
  • ANSI – American national standard (American Standard)
  • DIN – German national standard (German standard)
  • ASME – American Society of Mechanical Engineers
  • JIS (Japanese standard)
  • BSW – British national standard

GB-national standard is one of many standards in China, and there are also industry standards, professional standards and department standards. National standards are divided into: GB (mandatory standards), GB / T (recommended standards) and GBN (national internal standards). What we usually see, such as GB30, GB5783 and so on, are mandatory standards.
In addition to some basic dimensions, such as head to side, head thickness, etc., the main difference of the above standards is the difference of thread part. GB, DIN, JIS and other threads are in mm (mm) units, collectively referred to as metric threads. Another thread such as ANSI, ASME, etc. is in inches, called American Standard thread. In addition to metric thread and American screw thread, there is a bsw-british standard. The thread is also in inch, commonly known as Wyeth thread.
Metric thread is in mm (mm) units, its cusp angle is 60 degrees. Both American and British threads are in inches. The cusp angle of American thread is also 60 degrees, while that of British thread is 55 degrees. Due to the different measurement units, the representation of various threads is not the same. For example, m16-2×60 represents metric thread. His specific meaning is that the nominal diameter of the screw is 16mm, the pitch is 2mm, and the length is 60mm. For example, 1 / 4-20×3 / 4 indicates the British thread. His specific meaning is that the nominal diameter of the screw is 1 / 4 inch (one inch = 25.4mm), and there are 20 teeth on one inch, and the length is 3 / 4 inch. In addition, if you want to indicate American screw, you will usually add uncand UNF after the English screw to distinguish between American coarse tooth and American fine tooth.
In the usual domestic sales business, the standards we often encounter are GB (national standard) and DIN (German standard).
In terms of non fanwo products, we will mainly contact the following standards: GB30; gb5783; gb5782; gb52; GB6170; GB818; GB819; GB845; GB846; GB70; DIN912; DIN933; DIN931, etc. At present, GB30 (old national standard) has been replaced by GB5783 (new national standard) in the standard book. Gb52 (old national standard) has been replaced by GB6170 (new national standard) in the standard book.
In 1986, our country formulated a new standard for standard parts, commonly known as the new standard in business. The most commonly used standards are GB5780, GB5781, GB5782, GB5783 and GB5784. GB5780 is a kind of hexagon head thick rod half thread screw, and its precision grade is grade C, which can be replaced by GB5782 (GB5782 is hexagon head thick rod full thread screw, and its accuracy grade is a and b) GB5781 is a hexagon head full tooth screw, and the accuracy grade is grade C. GB5783 can be replaced by GB5783 (GB5783 is hexagon head full tooth screw, and its accuracy grade is a and b). GB5784 is a hexagon screw with thin rod and half tooth.

The difference between the new standard and the old one is that the width of the opposite side of the products of the series of M8, M10, M12, M14 and M22 is different. In addition to the new products of M22 series, the head opposite sides of new standard products M8, M10, M12 and M14 are 1 mm smaller than those of the old standard. They are 13 mm, 16 mm, 18 mm and 21 mm respectively. For the new products of M22 series, the new standard is 2 mm larger than the opposite side of the old standard, which should be paid special attention to. For the thickness of the head, there is a slight difference between the new standard and the old one, which can be used when the requirements are not very strict.
The difference between the new standard and the German standard is that the product specifications of M14, M22, M14 and M12 are different in width. The head to side new mark of M12, M14 is 1 mm smaller than that of German standard. The M22 new products, its head to side width than the German standard to the side width to be 2mm, other can be used.
For hexagon nuts, the commonly used standards are: GB52, GB6170, GB6172 and DIN934. The main difference between them is that the thickness of GB6170 is thicker than that of GB52, GB6172 and DIN934, commonly known as thick nuts. In addition, the opposite sides of DIN934, GB6170 and GB6172 in the series of M8 nuts are 13mm, which is 1mm smaller than 14mm of GB52. For M12 nut, the opposite side of DIN934 and GB52 is 17mm, which is 1mm larger than that of GB6170 and gb6172. For M12 nut, the opposite side of DIN934 and GB52 is 19mm, which is 1mm larger than that of GB6170 and GB6172. For the nut of GB6172 and GB6172, it is larger than that of GB6172. Another is the M22 nut. The opposite side of DIN934 and GB52 is 32mm, which is 2mm smaller than 34mm of GB6170 and GB6172. (GB6170 and GB6172 have the same width on the opposite side except the thickness is different). Other specifications can be used without considering the thickness.
In terms of internal hexagon, there are two versions in the national standard, one is gb70-76, the other is GB70-85 In 1985, our company implements DIN912 standard, so we should pay attention to the differences in actual business operation: GB70-85 and DIN912 are completely identical, so there is no difference in the use of the new standard, mainly between GB70-76 and DIN912: for the internal hexagon products of M8 series, the round head diameter of GB70-76 is 12.5mm, which is smaller than 13.27mm of DIN912, For M16 series hexagon socket products, the round head diameter of GB70-76 is 15mm, which is smaller than 16.27 of DIN912; for M12 series, the round head diameter of GB70-76 is 18mm, which is smaller than that of DIN912 18.27; for M16 and M20 series, the round head diameter of GB70-76 is 0.33mm smaller than that of DIN912, 24mm and 30mm respectively. 33 mm and 30.33 mm, respectively. In addition, the width of the inner opposite side between the old standard and the German standard is different due to different standards. The inner opposite edge of GB70-76 is smaller, which should be paid attention to in the business operation.
In addition, there are some differences in the carriage screws that may be used at ordinary times. Here is an explanation. In the national standard, there are two kinds of carriage screw standards, namely, GB12 (small half round head square neck screw) and GB14 (large half round head square neck screw), and the German standard DIN603 is more commonly used in the market. The difference between the three is as follows: for the round neck, when compared with the same specification, it is: GB12 < GB14 < DIN603. Usually, when the carriage screw is used, the head and neck are required to be large and thick, so the standard of DIN603 carriage screw fully meets the requirements.
