What are Imperial Socket Head Nylon Tipped Set / Grub Screws?
Imperial socket head nylon set or grub screws are specialized fastening components used in precision engineering applications where pressure from the tipped grub screw needs to apply pressure in order to join two components such as a spur gear and an axle without leaving impressions. Unlike typical screws, they lack a protruding head, making them ideal for applications where a flush surface is necessary.
How Imperial Nylon Set / Grub Screws Work.
These screws work by fitting into a tapped hole with their imperial thread size corresponding to the internal thread of the mating part. The absence of a head allows for a flush surface finish, and their internal hex socket drive mechanism enables precise torque application. This design is crucial in applications where space is limited or where a smooth, snag-free surface is required. In addition, the nylon tip allows for a gentle installation that won't leave marks where a traditional non-tipped grub screw would.

Q: What applications are best suited for imperial nylon set / grub screws?.
A: These screws are ideal for applications requiring a flush surface finish, such as in machinery, electronic devices, and precision instruments, where protruding heads can interfere with the functionality The nylon tip helps where the grub screw may interact with softer materials when installed such as plastics or brass and helps to not leave a mark.
Q: How do I choose the right size of imperial nylon set / grub screw for my project?.
A: The choice depends on the internal thread size of the mating component and the required length for your specific application. Ensure compatibility with the mating part to achieve optimal fastening.
Q: Can imperial nylon set / grub screws be used in outdoor environments?.
A: Yes, their A2 Stainless Steel construction provides good resistance to corrosion, making them suitable for outdoor use in various conditions.
Q: What tools are required for installing these screws?.
A: Installation typically requires a hex key of the corresponding size. Accu has a wide range of imperial hex keys which can be bought in tandem with these components.
Q: Does Accu offer customization options for imperial nylon set / grub screws?.
