What Is a Pan Head Screw?
The pan head screw is named after the appearance of its head, which looks similar to an upside-down frying pan. Pan head screws are the common type of non-countersunk head screws used for wood screws, self-tapping screws, self-drilling screws, and machine screws.
Pan head screws are a common head type of non-countersunk head screws used in wood screws, self-tapping screws, self-drilling screws, and machine screws. They have a wide head, a flat bearing surface, high vertical, chamfered, or curved sides, and a flat or hemispherical top surface with a concave socket.
They have a wide head, a flat bearing surface, high vertical, chamfered, or curved sides, and a flat or hemispherical top surface with a concave socket. A socket is usually a slot, especially for wood screws and self-tapping screws. Hexagonal sleeves are also commonly used for mechanical screws.
Multiple thread type
Stainless steel, carbon steel, and alloy steel are commonly used to improve wear and tear
All kinds of strength, size, and length -- from a few inches to a few inches long
Many coatings are available, such as black phosphates for corrosion resistance and zinc for galvanizing.
A flat bearing surface is required
The head is in danger of being used
Decorative fixation is required.
The large diameter of the Pan Head Phillips Self Tapping Screw plus the higher edge provides a larger deep hole. This allows for high torque during assembly while minimizing CAM overhang, which can damage the screw. The flat bottom side of the pan head screw provides a large mating surface area that can be firmly fixed even with enlarged holes and minimizes extrusion.
The flat or hemispheric profile provides a finishing effect for decorative applications and minimizes the risk of sticking screw heads during use. Pan head screws come in a variety of sleeve types or drive designs, including slotted, cross, hexagonal sleeve, Pozidriv, Torx, and square drives. They can be galvanized, white-coated, black coated, and uncoated stainless steel.
Pan head screws are commonly used in the hexagonal head where they may be stuck or appear inappropriate, but the material is not thick enough to support countersunk head holes or countersunk head holes. Slotted receptacles are also better suited for lighting applications and can be secured more easily with a screwdriver.
Pan head wood screws are used to attach flat material to the wood.
Pan heads are similar to round heads, truss heads, and tie heads, although tray heads have largely replaced other such heads in modern screws. Circular head screws have a dome head and a smaller supporting surface, and applications using circular heads require a high degree of aesthetics. Truss head screws have an ultra-wide head and low profile, and applications using truss head screws require covering large holes or very low clearances.
The head and notch of the binding head screw are particularly deep, and applications using the binding head screw require higher tightening torque.
