Socket screws from stock or custom made

 

Challenge Europe, specialists in fasteners believe they are 'big' on socket screws, as they have big stock and big service to ensure UK manufacturers across the electro-mechanical industries can save costs and ensure problem-free production schedules.

Socket head cap screws are frequently the threaded fastener of choice for manual or automated assembly. Typically in metric sizes of 10.9, 12.9 and 8.8 grade of high tensile steel, as well as stainless steel. Socket head cap screws, with their knurled outer head and internal hex drive, are ideal for manual positioning and power tightening for speed and accuracy. Its sister socket shoulder screw design offers an additional precision ground shoulder for accurate location.

Lighter duty applications and fully automated assembly are facilitated with both socket countersunk and socket button head screws, dependant on the thickness of the material and the appearance desired.

Complementing the above is a full range of socket setscrews in the traditional configurations of cup point, cone point, flat and dog point.

Delivery to Kanban, Linefeed or Vendor Managed Inventory systems is available.
