How far a nut or bolt travels in one full turn


The formula, 1/TPI (threads per inch), determines the distance traveled in one full turn. (Dividing the result by six tells you how far a hex fastener moves one flat at a time.)


Distance traveled in one full turn is equal to the pitch since metric pitch is determined by the distance between threads

Distance traveled same as pitch shown
