2) The screw shaft is a fully threaded rod segment

3) The thread has two types of coarse and fine teeth.

Material: low carbon steel, stainless steel, brass and aluminum alloy

Common models are:

(l) AN500 is a coarse-toothed head screw AN501 is a fine-toothed round head screw

(2) AN505 is a coarse tooth 82° countersunk screw AN507 is a fine tooth 82° countersunk screw

(3) AN515 is a coarse-toothed round head screw AN526 is a fine-toothed large round head screw
