When your application demands incredibly high strength in a lightweight package, there’s no better material than Aluminum 7075. KD Fasteners is the premier provider of flat head socket cap screws manufactured from this material.
Flat Head Socket Cap Screws Explained
A flat head socket cap screw is a threaded fastener with a flat cylindrical head and hexagonal drive hole. It’s used to secure mating parts or panels of an assembly or upper-level tool.
The flat socket head permits 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.
Unless otherwise specified, the screw head is clean. The absence of stampings or markings offers a smooth, visually pleasing appearance.
