Cap screw diameter Cap screw length Clearance hole diameter Tap drill size Tap drill depth Screw tap specification Screw tap depth 30 Cap Screw Diameter Determined by engineering calculations using materials, thicknesses, loads, etc. You will learn this in other courses, i.e. ME222, ME471, etc. Will be given for example & exam problems 31 Cap Screw Length Determined by thickness of part to be held & function of screw diameter & base material Then, compared to generally available screw lengths based on diameter 32 Cap Screw Drill & Tap Depths 33 Cap Screw Length Length (L) = part thickness (t) + entrance length (A) Where A is a function of the tapped material Determine screw length prior to tap drill depth and thread depth Must check for screw length availability 34 Threads on Drawings 35 Clearance Hole Diameter Determined from screw diameter D + 1/32" for screws up to 1/2" D + 1/16" for screws up to 2" D + 1/8" for screws over 2" 36 Tap Drill Size (Diameter) Use standard tables for nominal screw diameter and thread form & series 37 38 39 40 Tap Drill Depth Calculated based on screw diameter & part material Tap Drill Depth (F) = actual entrance length (A') + thread clearance (B) + unthreaded portion (E) where actual entrance length (A') =screw length (L) part thickness (t) 41 Tap Depth Calculated from screw diameter & part material Thread Depth (C) = actual entrance length (A') + thread clearance (B) where actual entrance length (A') = screw length (L) part thickness (t) 42 Tap Drill Depth 43 Cap Screw Calculation Example A 0.46" thick brass plate is to be fastened to a steel frame with a " unified course thread Class 3 hex head cap screw. What is the diameter of the hole drilled through the brass plate? What are the specifications for the hole drilled into the steel frame? What are the specifications for the tapped hole? What are the specifications for the fastener? 44 Cap Screw Length L=t+A t = 0.46" A = D (steel) = 0.75" Therefore, minimum screw length = 1.21" Check of screw length increments indicates using 1.25" long screw A' = L t = 1.25" 0.46" = 0.79" 45 Clearance Hole Diameter D + 1/16" for screws up to 2" Therefore, clearance hole diameter = 3/4" + 1/16" = 13/16" 46 Tap Drill Size (Diameter) From the standard tables, use 21/32" drill 47 Depth of the Tap Drill F = A' + B + E = 0.79" + 4/10" + 4/10" = 1.59" 48 Thread Depth C = A' + B = 0.79" + 4/N = 0.79" + 4/10" = 1.19" 49 Drawing Notes Clearance hole: 13/16 DRILL Tap drill: 21/32 DRILL, 1.59 DEEP Tap: 3/4 10UNC 3B x 1.19 DEEP Fastener: 3/4 10UNC 3A x 1 1/4 HEX HEAD CAP SCREW 50 ...
