Contexto: "Most thread former manufacturers recommend 70% - 80% thread engagement for their thread formers in aluminum with 1.5d - 2.0d (d=screw diameter)length of engagement and will provide tables that will tell you what taper, hole size and length of engagement you will need for various size self-tapping thread forming screws."
