Socket Head Cap Screw (Allen Bolt)
Socket Head Cap Screws, commonly known as Allen bolts are specialized fasteners designed for secure and precise fastening in various applications. They are characterized by their distinctive head shape and the use of an Allen wrench or hex key for installation and removal.
The head of a socket head cap screw is cylindrical with a recessed hexagonal socket in the center. This socket allows for a more compact and flush installation compared to traditional bolts, making socket head cap screws ideal for applications where space is limited or aesthetics are important.
Socket head cap screws are available in a wide range of sizes, materials, and thread types to suit various applications. They can be found in both metric and imperial sizes, making them versatile for global markets. Materials commonly used for socket head cap screws include steel, stainless steel, and alloys, providing options for different strength, corrosion resistance, and temperature requirements.
