Micro Screws, also colloquially known as ‘tiny screws’ or ‘nano screws’, are a type of specialist fastener that is significantly smaller and lighter than the average precision screw.
Just look at the size difference when they are placed beside a pencil!
Typically, for a fastener to be considered a Micro Screw, it will have an outer diameter (thread size) of M1.6 or below. However, it can be argued that screws with a thread size of up to M3 also fit the criteria for a Micro Screw, due to their comparatively small size.
Featuring such a tiny head size and drive, these screws are ideal for intricate assemblies where factors such as increased precision, size, space, or weight-saving considerations are necessary.
