Types of Industrial Socket Cap Fasteners
At Denali Industrial Supply, we offer industrial fasteners to address your challenges. Our product suite includes a variety of socket screws for applications across various industries.
Socket Cap Screws
An ideal fastener for applications with limited space, socket cap screws
feature less surface area due to their internal wrenching design. Also referred to as Allen screws or Allen head bolts, applications that cannot accommodate traditional wrenches and sockets benefit from utilizing socket cap screws. Socket cap screws are available in threaded and unthreaded variations.
Flat Socket Cap Screws
Equipped with a low-profile and countersunk head, flat socket cap screws
offer durability and strength. Flat socket cap fasteners are often used in industrial projects where moving parts pass over a fastened component because of the flush mounting they provide. A robust fastening solution, flat socket cap screws are excellent for applications that require a reliable mount with little or no fastener interference.
Button Socket Cap Screws
Featuring a low-domed head with a wide bearing surface, button socket cap screws
are a light fastening solution. Button socket cap fasteners provide a less secure hold than flat socket cap screws and standard socket cap screws. An ideal fastener solution for lightweight applications, the aesthetic appearance of button socket screws makes them excellent for finishing when a neat appearance is desired.
