Alloy 6061 sets the standard for strong, lightweight materials that stand up to corrosion and degradation. With decades of experience turning this material into precision fasteners, KD Fasteners is a trusted provider of Aluminum 6061 flat head socket cap screws.
Flat Head Socket Cap Screw Characteristics
This is a threaded fastener featuring a flat cylindrical head and hexagonal drive hole. It’s used to secure mating parts or panels of an assembly or upper-level tool, and the flat socket head supports driving when sufficient space for wrenches or sockets isn’t possible. Tightening occurs when torque is applied to the screw head, which sits flush with the surface of the mating part upon insertion.
The screw head is clean unless otherwise specified. The absence of stampings or markings offers a clean, streamlined appearance.
