What are Imperial Precision Slotted Shoulder Screws?
Imperial Precision Slotted Shoulder Screws are a variant of shoulder screws that have a slotted drive and conform to Imperial measurement standards. These screws are designed with a precision ground shoulder, an unthreaded portion separating the threaded shank from the screw's head. The precision-ground shoulder provides an exact bearing surface for applications that require precise radial or axial alignment. Its slotted head ensures precise torque control, a feature invaluable in high-stakes environments like aerospace engineering, advanced robotics, and industrial machinery where precision is key.
How Imperial Precision Slotted Shoulder Screws Work.
The operative principle of Imperial Precision Slotted Shoulder Screws involves the strategic interaction of the shoulder with the corresponding component in an assembly. The screw's shoulder, an unthreaded section, provides a precise bearing surface, which facilitates the accurate positioning and movement of parts. It maintains its spacing and alignment even when subjected to rotational or axial forces. When coupled with a slotted drive design, it permits highly controlled torque application, mitigating the risk of over-tightening or stripping, crucial in high-precision assemblies.
What Material Imperial Precision Slotted Shoulder Screws Are Made From.
Imperial Precision Slotted Shoulder Screws at Accu are fabricated from high-grade A2 Stainless Steel. This steel variant offers a robust balance of strength, machinability, and corrosion resistance, making it suitable for a wide range of environments and applications. Additionally, to cater to special use-cases, we provide AccuBlack finishing for applications where reduced light reflection is necessary, and Thread Locking Patches for securing the screws against vibrations and intermittent shocks.
What Size and Type Imperial Precision Slotted Shoulder Screws Are Available.
Imperial Precision Slotted Shoulder Screws from Accu range in thread size from the compact 1/4 inch up to the robust No. 10, allowing for precise choice depending on your load-bearing and alignment requirements. Our range also features shoulder diameters between 1/8 inch and 1/2 inch and lengths between 1/8 to 1 1/2 inch.
While similar in design to other shoulder screws, the defining features of these screws are their slotted drive and Imperial measurements, making them uniquely suited for specific precision applications where these characteristics are required.
