## How do you convert TPI to metric?

## How do you convert TPI to metric?

You can calculate that a fastener with a TPI of 32 has a pitch in inches of 0.031 by dividing 1 by 32. Then, you can convert this to millimeters by multiplying it by 25.4 millimeters and end up with millimeter pitch as 0.793 mm. will give 0.793 mm (0.8) and one with a TPI of 56 will give 0.45 mm.

## What thread pitch is M8?

1 11/16″ – 20-UN | 1.6875 | 20 |

### How is TPI measured?

Measuring Imperial Thread Pitch As the name suggests, TPI is measured by counting the number of thread peaks along a 1 inch length. The TPI measurement is then often affixed to the diameter of the thread to form a common imperial thread size, e.g. ‘1/4-20’, which would denote a ¼ inch diameter, and 20 threads per inch.

---|---|---|

M10 | 1.5 | 8.5 |

M12 | 1.75 | 10.2 |

M16 | 2.0 | 14.0 |

M20 | 2.5 | 17.5 |

## Are M10 and 3/8 the same?

Since 10 mm is bigger than 3/8″, the simple answer is, “NO”.

## What does M8 1.25 mean?

For metric fasteners, you will see a M8 x 1.25 or an M8 x 1. For thread pitch, the distance between two points is the second number meaning the higher the number the fewer threads there are. This means the M8 x 1.25 is the coarse threading and the M8 x 1 is the fine thread.
