Thread size refers to the diameter and pitch (distance between threads) of a screw thread. In the metric system, the thread size is specified by the combination of the thread’s diameter (in millimeters) and pitch (in millimeters). For example, a thread size of M10 x 1.5 has a diameter of 10 millimeters and a pitch of 1.5 millimeters.

In the imperial (or “inch”) system, the thread size is specified by the diameter of the thread in inches and the number of threads per inch. For example, in the thread size 1/4-20, the first digit means the thread diameter, and the second digit is threads-per-inch (TPI), so it refers to a diameter of 1/4 inch and 20 threads per inch. When the diameter is less than 1/4″, the value is indicated by a number, such as No. 1 or #1.

Thread sizes can also be specified using a standardized thread size numbering system, such as the Unified Thread Standard (UTS) in the United States. This system assigns a number to each thread size based on its diameter and pitch, making it easier to identify and specify thread sizes.

It is important to use the correct thread size for a given application to ensure that the threads on the bolt or screw will properly engage with the threads on the mating nut or object. Using a thread size that is too small can result in a weak connection that is prone to failure, while using a thread size that is too large can result in damage to the threads or difficulty in fastening the objects together.

Here are two screw thread sizes table defines thread dimensions of coarse threads (UNC/UNRC) and fine threads (UNF/UNRF).
