There are a variety of screws used in electronic manufacturing and devices. In addition to standard screws, jack screws and shoulder screws are commonly used with head styles that include slotted, knurled, Phillips and socket.
Screws and nuts are available in standard and metric sizes in nylon, commonly used in electronic assemblies, aluminum, steel, stainless steel, brass, bronze and copper. More specific information on screws is found on the Screws/SEMS®
page under the Fasteners section of this website.
Jack screws, typically used to hold “D” style connectors together, are available in standard, SEMS, slotted and knurled styles. Each type has a similar function but vary based on installation method and requirements. For example, knurled, also described as thumb style, allow for hand installation and loosening while slotted style requires a slotted screwdriver.
Shoulder screws are available in standard and metric sizes with slotted, Phillips or socket heads. Used for precision spacing in electronic applications, shoulder screws are available in a number of materials including brass, nylon, steel and stainless steel.
Captive screws are designed to remain attached to the material to which they are installed even when unscrewed from the mating material. This design ensures pieces are secure and do not drop into equipment or machinery. Used as stand-alone fasteners or in conjunction with retaining devices, captive screws are available in a variety of sizes, point and head styles, materials and finishes.
