What Are Machine Screws?
Not all screws are the same. Machine screws feature a unique design that distinguishes them from other common types of screws. The most common use for machine screws are for electrical applications. These parts have threading on the whole shaft. These screws can be inserted into tapped holes or applied with nuts. And in accordance with the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) standards, the machine screw diameter is up to .75 inches. Another part that has threading along the shaft is the tap bolt. Let's take a deeper dive into these screws, learn the basics about them and some important advantages when you use them.
When you think of a fastener, you think screws that feature helical ridges. You know, the exterior threading that allows the screw to dig into work-pieces and objects and creating a secure hold between two or more objects. However, not all screws are the same and machine screws feature a unique design and have a unique size that makes them different from other screws out there in the aerospace industry.
The ASME defines machine screws as featuring a diameter of up to 0.75 inches. However, these screws can be smaller than 0.75 inches in diameter. But they cannot be larger than this size. Due to this, machine screws are generally smaller than most other types of screws.
On top of having a diameter of 0.75 inches or less, machine screws have a uniform threading. When it comes to screws, they either have a uniform or tapered threading. When the screw has a uniform threading, the exterior threading remains the same size from the top of the screw down to the bottom. If the screw had a tapered threading, then the threading would expand toward the bottom.
When it comes to use in the aerospace or military industry, there is often a preference to the machine screws over any larger screws. Since they are smaller in size, they offer a wider range of applications. You can use machine screws to join countless types of products, objects and surfaces.
Another key advantage is the fact that you can get machine screws in different materials. A popular material used in the construction of machine screws is stainless steel. This is due to its strength and durability. On top of that, stainless steel also offers a high level of protection against rust and corrosion. Aluminum is also a commonly used material in the construction of these screws. It also offers great protection against rust and corrosion. And though they are not as strong as a stainless steel screw, they are lighter. So if there is an application where weight is a factor, then opting for aluminum screws is the way to go.
Use these screws for various applications, such as aerospace plating and joining two or more objects together. Learn more about custom fasteners and the various benefits you get from them.
