What are the Differences Between Hex Bolts and Hex Screws?
Even though the names of these two different are often used interchangeably, there are several subtle differences between them. One of the key differences between the two are the ways in which they are installed. Hex bolts are tightened by turning the bolt’s nut to allow the fastening of the bolt, while a screw is threaded through a tapped hole. Moreover, hex screws are generally used within OEM settings where tight tolerances are required. Conversely, hex bolts are utilized when the mechanical properties of the bolt are of greater importance than dimensional tolerances.
