Set Screws

Set screws are specialized screws designed to secure an object within or against another object. They feature a fully threaded body and a recessed hexagonal or slotted drive for easy installation and removal. They’re popular in scenarios where a flush or low-profile fastening is required.

Our Set Screw Capabilities

To ensure top quality and reliability, we maintain a small list of fasteners that we can produce. Set screws are one of the categories that fall into the “maybe we can, maybe we can’t” manufacture label. It wholly depends on the diameter and length of your part specification.

To get a clear answer on whether your set screw is within our capabilities, please submit an RFQ with the specification, blueprint, or sketch of the part.
