Thread pitch

Thread pitch refers to the distance between the peaks of two threads along a screw, bolt, or fastener. Used when referring to metric parts, the thread pitch is compatible to the TPI, or threads per inch, of a non-metric part. Conversion tables and calculators exist to help convert these two types of measurements. A higher or lower thread pitch of a part impacts the tension limits and general strength of the part.
