Commonly referred to as a setscrew and longer versions are referred to in the United States as a tap bolt. A standard spanner or ratchet is typically used to fit this product. Used for decades on all types of assembly throughout the world. The hex drive allows a higher torque to be applied. Produced to ASME B18.2.1.
The most common type of fastener, a hex head bolt is designed to be tightened with a standard spanner or ratchet and socket. Popularly used in all assemblies, a standard hex bolt is a staple across the world. Manufactured to ASME B18. 2.1, and includes an unthreaded section of the shaft. A hex drive permits a greater torque load to be applied to the joint over most other drive types.
A popular and attractive socket head screw, typically used where aesthetics are important, or where a lower profile domed finish is required. The hex drive is generally smaller than other hex driven ranges and thus the ultimate tightening torque is reduced. Manufactured to ASME/ANSI B18.3, and always fully threaded.
Also known as an Allen screw or Allen bolt, or simply a cap screw, socket head cap screws are a more modern alternative standard machine fastener to the standard hexagon headed bolt or setscrew, as found on much modern machinery. A hex key (otherwise known as an Allen key) is required to fit these fasteners. Conforming to ASME/ANSI B18. 3, the contact surfaces of this screw or bolt are protected from external damage. Generally manufactured with a partial thread beyond a certain length and nominal diameter combination, but occasionally some stock may include a fully threaded shank at the same combination.
UNC Phillips Pan Head Machine Screws ASME B18. 6.3
A Machine screw with a phillips drive, designed to be tightened with a screwdriver. Typically found on consumer electronics and other small machinery where high torque fasteners are not necessary. Conforms with ASME B18. 6.3.
UNC Socket Head Countersunk Screws ASME B18. 3-2003
A countersunk headed screw conforming with ASME/ANSI B18.3, requiring a hex key (otherwise known as an Allen key) to fit. The countersunk head is typically used in conjunction with a countersunk hole providing a flush, snag free fit. Generally manufactured with a full thread, though occasionally some stock may include a partially threaded shank.
A popular machine screw with a phillips drive. The countersunk head is typically used in conjunction with a countersunk hole providing a flush, snag free fit. These items are always fully threaded. Conforms to ASME B18. 6.3. Typically found on consumer electronics and other small machinery where high torque fasteners are not necessary.
Also known as a set screw, these headless types of screws have many uses. This particular type has a hex socket drive, and a depression called a 'cup' on the opposite end, and conforms to ASME/ANSI B18.3.
