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. Explore our custom set screw capabilities and applications below.
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.
Set Screw Applications
Set screws are versatile components that can be used for many applications. Our cold-formed, high-strength parts are most commonly used for attachments in heavy machinery and automotive spaces.
