What are Imperial Socket Head Cone Point Set / Grub Screws?
Imperial Socket Head Cone Point Grub Screws are precision-engineered and known for their distinct cone-shaped point. These set screws, or 'grub screws' as they're commonly referred to, are headless, meaning they sit flush within a component, providing a neat and streamlined finish. The term 'Imperial' signifies the adoption of the Imperial system (inches, TPI) of measurement for these screws. This feature, coupled with their exceptional build and functionality, makes them a favourite amongst engineers in the US and across various global industries such as aerospace and automotive. Similar to their cousins, the Imperial Cup Point Grub Screws, the Cone Point variants are typically used for their stronger hold.
How Imperial Cone Point Grub Screws Work.
These set screws operate by fitting into pre-drilled or tapped holes, substituting the need for traditional screws or bolts. The unique cone point design gives these grub screws superior holding power, significantly reducing the possibility of dislocation or slackening. That said, the cone point is known for leaving marks on the material it is applying pressure to. Owing to their headless design, these screws fit snugly within the material, making them a perfect choice for applications necessitating a clean and visually attractive finish.
What Material Are Imperial Cone Point Grub Screws Made From?.
To maintain top-notch resilience and robustness, our range of Imperial Cone Point Grub Screws is manufactured from sturdy materials like stainless steel, including variants such as A2 and A4 marine grade. The choice of material hinges on the specific application, considering factors like the environment, load-bearing necessities, and resistance to corrosion or extreme temperatures.
What Size and Type of Imperial Cone Point Grub Screws Are Available?.
Accu offers a broad selection of sizes for our Imperial Cone Point Grub Screws to meet a myriad of engineering needs. Sizes range from smaller 1/4 inch screws for fine-tuned projects, up to larger No. 10 sizes for more substantial undertakings with lengths between 1/8 inch to 2 inch for a myriad of projects. Additionally, diverse materials and finishes are available, offering options for improved corrosion resistance, enhanced strength, or superior aesthetic appeal.
Q: What are the benefits of using Imperial Cone Point Grub Screws?.
A: The cone point design delivers excellent holding power, reducing the chance of the screw coming loose. The absence of a protruding head allows for a neat finish, making it a preferred choice for applications requiring a smooth, clean appearance.
Q: Can these grub screws be used in outdoor settings?.
A: Yes, subject to the material chosen. Stainless steel variants, for example, provide excellent resistance to corrosion, making them ideal for outdoor applications.
Q: What tools are needed to install these grub screws?.
Q: How do I determine the right size of grub screw for my project?.
A: The appropriate size will depend on your project specifics, including the type of material, the load the screw needs to support, and the dimensions of the pre-drilled or tapped holes.
Q: Is there a minimum order quantity for these grub screws?.
A: At Accu, we prioritise flexibility and convenience for our customers. Therefore, there's no minimum order requirement, allowing you to purchase just a single grub screw or thousands, depending on your unique needs.
