There are different ways in which you are able to ensure stainless steel machine screws remain firmly in place. The screws do require a predrilled hole before they are attached to your various components and parts. One option for holding them in place is to make sure the predrilled holes match the size of screw you are using. If you drill the holes too big, the screw will not fasten correctly. As long as the hole is the right size, the use of nuts is often not necessary, as you are able to fully tighten the screw. Another option is to apply a small amount of adhesive or glue into the predrilled hole prior to inserting and tightening the screw. Once the glue dries, it helps to hold the screw in place and prevents it from working loose. Using glues or adhesives as a fastening method is ideal for products where the screws are being used in areas that can be affected by vibrations or movements from the finished product.
Government Projects Require DARFs-Compliant Stainless Steel Machine Screws
Government and military projects require that certain materials and products be able to pass regulations and compliances. For instance, stainless steel machine screws require Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DARFs) certifications. These certifications ensure each and every screw satisfies specific acquisition requirements, such as their country of manufacture. Whether you are a government contractor, or a government agency, we are able to provide DARFs-compliant fasteners for all kinds of defense projects.
