2.According to the expected use requirements of the standard parts, determine the alternative varieties in terms of type, mechanical properties, precision and thread.



1.Bolts: Bolts are generally matched with nuts (usually plus a washer or two washers), and are used for initial connection and fastening occasions.

2.Screw: The screw is usually used alone (sometimes with a washer), and it is generally used for fastening or tightening.
