Self-Drilling Screws – How They Work

Self-Drilling Screws eliminate the need for separate drilling and tapping operations, helping provide the user with a faster, more economical installation process. Self-Drilling Screws operate on the same basic principles as a drill bit or other cutting tool. Performance for these screws are determined by cutting speed, feed rate, depth of cut and the working material being drilled into.

Optimal Performance Conditions for Self-Drilling ScrewsOptimalCuttingConditionsScrewSize

Proper installation of self-drilling screws depend on a number of factors and can (mostly) be controlled by the user. The table to the right, can be used as a guide to help properly install different nominal screw sizes. *Suggested combined maximum values. Values may be increased or decreased, as long as associated variable are changed proportionally.

  • Screw Point Geometry – the shape of the self-drilling screw drill point, not directly adjustable by the user
  • RPM – the speed of the drill/driver motor while installing the screw. Can be adjusted using a variable speed drill/driver
  • Applied Force – a measurement of the force applied by the user as the screw is installed, more force is not necessarily better
  • Work Material Hardness – the material’s resistance to drilling or cutting, in most cases, the harder the material, the more difficult it is to drill/cutSelfDrillingScrewAnatomy

Important Features to Consider When Choosing a Self-Drilling Screw

When selecting the correct self-drilling screw for your application, there are a number of factors to take into consideration. This includes the types of materials being attached and the thickness of the materials. In addition to the working material, the following design features should be also be considered before selecting your screw.

  • Drill Flutes – allow the drilled material to exit the hole, once completely embedded, the flutes can no longer remove these chips. These chips contain approximately 80% of the heat created during the installation process. If these chips buildup, this could cause the point to over-heat and fail.
  • Point Length – determines the thickness of the material which the screw can dependably drill through. The pilot section of the drill point, unthreaded portion, must be able to completely drill through the working material before the threads engage. Fasteners can bind and break if the threads engage before drilling is complete.DrillPointWings
  • Point Wings – are not present on all self-drilling screws, they are used when you need to fasten thicker materials, such as wood to metal applications. When drilled, the wings will enlarge the hole in the fastened material, allowing the threads to pass through without engaging the threads. This added clearance prevents the separation of the materials being fastened together, known as jacking. The wings will then break away once the come in contact with the metal before the threads engage the metal.

Self-Drilling Screws Available at Tanner

At Tanner we offer one of the most complete lines of self-drilling screws available. Choose from: Standard Self-Drilling Screws, Bi-Metal Self-Drilling Screws, Self-Drilling Reamers, Structural Self-Drilling Screws, Tamper-Resistant Self-Drilling Screws & much more! If you have any trouble finding a particular size or style of screw online, please feel free to reach out to one of our knowledgeable product specials – Email: websales@tannerbolt.com | Phone: 800-456-2658

Don’t Forget About

  • Screw Drill Point Material – are usually plain carbon steel which is less stable at high temperatures. To help reduce the wear on the drill point, fasten using a motor drill rather than an impact driver or hammer drill.
  • High Temperature Failure – the heat generated when drilling in self-drilling screws affects how quickly the drill point fails. For additional information on this, please refer to the troubleshooting guide below.
  • Drilling Temperature – motor RPM, applied force and work material hardness, all contribute to the the drilling temperature. Increasing any of these values also increases the heat generated.
  • Reducing Applied Force – this can help increase durability, allowing the drill point to penetrate thicker materials.
  • Reducing Motor RPM – this can help improve the performance when drilling into harder materials. This will allow the user to push harder during the drilling process and extend the drill point life.

What is a Jobber Drill?

What Does the Term “Jobber” Mean?

The general definition of the term “jobber” is “a person or company that buys from manufacturers and sells to retailers”, most commonly used in the 1850-1950 period. At that time, manufacturers were mostly producing general purpose “for the trade” drill bits, not using specialized machining applications to make specific lengths or designs like today. These drills, were of medium length and suitable for a wide variety of jobs, coining the term “jobber-length”, reflecting the same concept of terms like “general purpose” and “multipurpose”. Today, jobber drill refers to the length of the drill itself.

What is a Jobber Drill?

Today Jobber Drills are manufactured in a number of different style to tackle a number of different applications. Jobber Drills still remain the most commonly found type of drill bit. A jobber drill bit has a long length compared to its diameter. The length of the flute is between 8-12 or 9-14 times the diameter of the drill, depending on the drill specifications. For example, a 1/2″ diameter jobber drill will be able to drill a 4-1/2″ deep hole because it is 9 times the diameter in length. Jobber drills are measured using a number of different systems:jobberDrills

  • Fractional Sizes
  • Letter Sizes
  • Wire Gauge Sizes
  • Metric Sizes
The size and measurement system you choose will depend on the application for which the drill will be used.

Make Blind Structural Connections Fast & Easy with BoxBolt®

There has recently been an increase in the use of structural hollow sections as columns in multi-story construction projects. This increase is due to the aesthetic, economic and structural performances that these hollow sections can provide for for engineers. The only downfall to this type of construction is the inability to access the interior of the sections to allow for the tightening of a standard bolt. Due to this, there was a need to develop a blind fastening solution that will ensure a structurally sound connection.

The Original BoxBolt®

The BoxBolt® is a convenient & reliable blind fastening solution for connecting to hollow sections of steel or where access is restricted to one side only. The BoxBolt® is fully tested and approved for us with rectangular, square and even circular hollow sections. Featuring a hexagonal head design, that aids in the installation process. The hex head allows it to be held in place with an open ended wrench, while the core bolt is being tightened by a torque wrench. As the core bolt is being tightened, the threaded wedge is drawn up inside the body, expanding the fins, creating a secure connection.

*You can use the one piece accessory called the BoxSok™ when installation time is at a premium.

Features and Benefits:BoxBolt

  • Simple connections to round, rectangular and square sections
  • Guaranteed safe working load
  • 5:1 factor of safety
  • No close tolerance holes required

The loads stated above are based on the LRFD (Load & Resistance Factor Design) method recommended by the AISC for bolted steel connections. This uses a factor of 0.75 of the ultimate load and therefore equates to a 1.33 to 1 factor of safety that we have applied to our published loads above. The overall strength of the connection is governed by the strength of material our BoxBolt is connecting into; therefore, this should be checked for structural capacity by a structural engineer.
Approvals – The published loads are taken from physical testing in hollow structural section which are then verified by Lloyds Register Type Approval. The BoxBolt is also tested and approved by DIBt (Deutsches Institut fur Bautechnik) which complies with the DIN 18800 and Eurocode 3 design methods for bolted steel connections.
