The larger M12-M18 MATHread and Taptite 2000 diameters enhance Optimas’ licensed products manufacturing capabilities that already included smaller diameters of MATHread®, Mortorq®, Phillips Square-Driv®, Remform®, and Taptite 2000® brands.

These enhanced, larger diameter capabilities complement existing smaller diameter offerings, and further support Optimas’ continued quest to deliver industry leading manufacturing solutions to distributors and OEMs directly.

By adding these larger diameter capabilities, Optimas is able to build on partnerships with reputable OEM brands wanting to onshore more manufacturing with licenses especially beneficial to industrial applications.

These licenses allow Optimas to supply its customers next generation fastening solutions which guarantee measurable advantages, including improved performance, reduced installation times, and weight savings and cost savings.
