What are Imperial Socket Head Cup Point Set / Grub Screws?
Imperial Socket Head Cup Point Grub Screws are small fixings designed for precision and durability in engineering. These Imperial Cup Point Set Screws are distinct due to their unique cup point design and the lack of a protruding head, providing a clean and smooth finish to your projects. As the name suggests, the term 'Imperial' signifies that these grub screws follow the Imperial system (inches, feet) of measurement, a standard predominantly employed in the United States and several global industries such as locomotion.
How Imperial Cup Point Grub Screws Work.
These Imperial Cup Point Grub Screws function by embedding themselves into a pre-drilled or tapped hole, replacing traditional screws or bolts. The unique cup point feature ensures a strong grip, reducing the possibility of unwanted movement or loosening. The absence of a protruding head enables these screws to sit flush within the material, making them ideal for applications requiring a seamless and aesthetically pleasing finish.
What Material Are Imperial Cup Point Grub Screws Made From?.
To uphold high levels of durability and resilience, our assortment of Imperial Cup Point Grub Screws is crafted from robust stainless steel, including variants such as A2 and A4 marine grade. The selection of material is based on the specific needs of the application, taking into consideration environmental factors, load-bearing requirements, and resistance to corrosion or extreme temperatures.
What Size and Type of Imperial Cup Point Grub Screws Are Available.
At Accu, we offer an extensive array of sizes for our Imperial Cup Point Grub Screws, catering to diverse engineering requirements. Sizes vary from smaller 1/4 inch set screws for delicate projects, up to larger No. 10 sizes for substantial tasks. Included in this selection are lengths ranging from 1/16 to 4 inches.
Moreover, various finishes are available, offering versatility and specificity, whether that involves enhanced resistance to corrosion, improved strength, or superior visual appeal.
Take for example our AccuBlack satin black coating which converts the oxide layer into magnetite without adding more than one micron to the overall precise measurements. Alternatively, for scenarios where the likelihood of your Imperial Cup Point Grub Screws coming loose is high, we can pre-apply thread-locking patches to reduce the chance of this.
