hex bolt and hex tap screw can be very confusing, Its one of those situations where you may order a hex cap screw and wind up with a hex bolt. They have same hex head and machine screw .                              

Today, we will explain the details of hex bolts vs hex tap screw to you.                   

1. The most basic difference between a cap screw and a bolt is the way in which these fasteners are installed. Hex Bolts are bolts with external threading and a hex head designed to be driven by a wrench.                                                                                                2. The variations between these fasteners are fairly significant both from a manufacturing and dimensional perspective as well as an application standpoint.                

Some common fastener specifications are: ASTM 449, A325, A307A, A354 and F1554 unless otherwise stated.

This list is not included, but represents some of the differences between the two names. Flexibility to use other materials, grades and bolting standards agreed by the manufacturer and purchaser. Goshen cautions: Be careful when ordering bolts to make sure you know if your project requires cap screws or bolts.
