This product guide contains the specification for metric threaded pozi raised countersunk head screws as available from Westfield Fasteners. The basis of this specification is the DIN standard DIN 966.
A countersunk headed screw incorporating a slightly raised head which gives it an attractive finish when fitted. This particular variant is Pozi driven.
Scope of the ISO standard.
DIN 966 defines the form and dimensional tolerances for pozi raised countersunk screws, with metric thread diameters of sizes M1.6 up to and including M10. The DIN 966 standard covers both pozi (type Z) and phillips (type H) drives. Table 1 below defines the overall dimensions and tolerances of this screw type, and should be used in conjunction with the diagram in figure 1. Table 2 defines the tolerance on the screw length. As figure 1 illustrates, the length is taken from the end of the shank up to the point where the head would sit flush on the workpiece, and disregarding the dome on the head.
Although the DIN 966 standard has now been superceded by ISO 7047, off the shelf parts are generally still manufactured to the older specification. The ISO standard specifies some revised dimensions and tolerances.
Variations from DIN 966
The DIN standard allows for a partially threaded shank, but off the shelf phillips or pozi raised countersunk head machine screws are seldom seen with this variation.
