Westfield Fasteners Product Specification:

ISO 4029 / DIN 916 - Cup Point Grub Screws

This product guide contains the specification for metric threaded cup point grub screws, available from Westfield Fasteners. The basis of this specification is the ISO standard ISO 4029 and the older DIN 916.

Product Description
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, as to ISO 4029 or DIN 916.

Scope of the ISO standard.
ISO 4029 specifies the tolerances and the variation in form of cup point grub screws, and covers metric thread diameters from M1.6 up to and including M24. Table 1 below defines the overall dimensions and tolerances of this screw type. Table 2 defines the tolerance on the shank length.

Grub screws in general are graded by hardness rather than by tensile strength. The relevant DIN and ISO standards specify a 45H hardness grade for non stainless steel grub screws and 21H for stainless steel grub screws.

Although the DIN 916 standard has been superceded by ISO 4029, the dimensions are the same and off-the-shelf parts could be marked with either standard.
