Mechanical Components Hardware

Mechanical components, such as screws, nuts and pins are essential pieces of hardware required to enable the safe and reliable operation of machines and assemblies in a vast range of applications. Screws essentially have three key elements: head, thread and drive. Variations in type cater for use in various applications. Different types include captive screws, integral seal screws and thumb screws. Nuts are equally diverse, securing components together combined with bolts. Pins and rings prevent nuts from coming loose and ensure that they are retained securely in place on assembly shafts. The vast choice of screws, nuts, pins and retaining rings ensure that all types of mechanical components are kept in place to enable optimum performance. Domestic and industrial applications alike rely on these vital pieces of hardware.
