Socket screws from stock – or custom

Specialist fastener suppliers Challenge Europe are 'big' on socket screws.

The company sees itself as a provider of "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 described as ideal for manual positioning and power tightening for speed and accuracy. Their 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, dependent 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.
