Socket Set Screw
Nationwide Military Parts Distributor
Sesco Industries is a trusted supplier of aerospace parts for businesses around the country. This includes a wide selection of socket set screws, which are used for fastening. They feature a headless design and are normally used to secure an object within or against another object. There is no head projecting past the end of screw thread. These set screws are threaded with a wrenching tool. Socket set screws have a range of point styles.
Their most common applications are for securing a pulley or gear to a shaft. By being headless in design, the screw is fully threaded. This means it has no head projecting past the diameter of the screw thread.
Socket Set Screw Features
How does a socket set screw work exactly? Well, this is a screw that has a head. Then, the thread will extend all the way to the head. A blind set screw is almost always driven with an internal-wrenching drive, such as a hex socket (Allen), star (Torx), square socket (Robertson), or slot. The set screw passes through a threaded hole in the outer object and is tightened against the inner object to prevent it from moving relative to the outer object.
An example application is when a socket set screw is screwed into a pulley hub so that its end-point bears firmly against the shaft. The fastening action is by friction between the screw and the shaft, often with some amount of elastic or plastic deformation of one or both. The durability of the socket set screw makes it great for many military applications and tasks.
