Hex Head Cap Screws
Hex head cap screws, also known as hex bolts, are bolts that feature a hexagonal or six-sided head. This type of fastener is manufactured with tighter tolerances and can be used in a wide variety of different applications and industries. Hex head cap screws also feature a washer surface directly under the head, which works to create a better seal.
Nuts are designed to work in tandem with a mating bolt to fasten multiple parts together. Both the nut and the bolt are kept securely together through a combination of their threads' friction, a slight stretching of the bold, and compression of the parts. All of our nuts are available in a wide selection of sizes and materials in order to properly match up with their mating bolts.
A washer is a thin plate (typically disc-shaped) with a hole in the middle that is most often used to distribute the load of a threaded fastener, such as a screw or a nut in order to help prevent damage to the surface of the object that is being fastened. Our selection of washers is available in both metal and plastic, and come in a large selection of sizes.
Socket Head Cap Screws
Socket head cap screws offer the strongest head style of all screw types on the market. This is because the socket head cap screw's head height is equal to the shank diameter. This type of fastener is most often used in applications with limited space because they boast an internal wrenching features. This type of screw is ideal for uses such as:
- Critical vehicle applications
- Machine tools
- Tools and dies
- Earth moving and mining machinery
- Engineering applications
A set screw is a headless screw that is completely threaded from end to end. This type of fastener can be used in a wide variety of industrial and mechanical devices, particularly within assemblies with rotating items, such as pulleys or wheels where a component is locked onto a shaft. The set screw works by exerting compressional force through the tip to prevent the relative movement between the two objects, so each can function as intended.
Structural bolts are designed for uses in heavy construction, and are meant to be always used with a nut and often with a hardened washer. The bearing surface of structural bolts is flat and washer faced, while the point is chamfered. This type of fastener is made from high-quality steel in order to ensure maximum strength and durability.
