News - March 2017 | Adjusting ring - our reduced prices 

DIN 705
Adjusting rings according to DIN 705 are the most common in use. These adjusting rings with set screw are the most efficient when they are used in combination with a shaft material which is softer than the material of the set screw, such as DIN 914, 916, 553. These adjusting rings are available in Plain Steel, Zinc Plated or Stainless steel A2 and also Stainless Steel A4.

DIN 703
Adjusting rings according to DIN 703 are less common. These rings have a larger outer diameter and are mostly used for heavier applications.

Specials
In addition to the standard items there are also divided adjusting rings available, namely single-split and double-split. The advantage of this item is that they do not damage the surface. Another advantage of the double-split adjusting ring is that it is easier to disassemble.

This item is available standard in Plain Steel, but also in Stainless Steel. We can provide both items. Besides the standard dimensions, we can also provide special adjusting rings with divergent inner and outer diameter.

News - February 2017 | The less common types of thread

BRITISCH AND AMERICAN THREAD

Aside from the metric sizes commonly used here in Europe, we also supply British threads (BA, BSW, BSF, BSP) and American threads (UNC, UNF, UNS, NPT).
- From the tiniest screws to the largest bolts
- From threaded rods to nuts
- From galvanised steel to stainless steel
Please see the overview below for more detail on the different systems for each thread.

TRAPEZOIDAL THREAD
Trapezoidal threaded rods (also known as spindles) are used to transfer a rotary motion into a linear motion (or vice versa).
We supply the following trapezoidal parts:
- Threaded rods in steel or stainless steel (1 and 3 meter)
- Hexagonal nuts in steel, stainless steel, bronze
- Round nuts in steel, stainless steel, bronze
In addition, we also supply nuts with flanges, square nuts, threaded rods made to measure and left-hand threads.

Click here for our Pricelist Trapezoidal.

METRIC FINE
Metric fine threads are used mainly in the car industry. The screw pitch is smaller, meaning fasteners are less likely to be loosened by vibrations. Metric fine castle nuts and lock nuts are also used in applications where fine adjustment is required.
We supply metric fine bolts in various materials, from size M2 up to and including M110. 
See the overview below for the availables pitches per size.

LEFT THREAD
The vast majority of threads are right-hand, meaning the screw or bolt is fastened or tightened clockwise.
However, there are left-hand threads too for special applications such as fitting the left pedal to bicycles, or gas cylinders.
We supply standard fasteners with both left and right-hand threads. Any special items requiring left-hand threads can be custom-made.
