Shaft screws are not really real screws, because they do not really have the reason to securely connect two different parts together. Nevertheless, as the name suggests, shaft screws are screws in the large family of screw connections. A very special fastener, which mainly finds its application in the industry. So in this article we would like to give you an understanding of what a shaft screw is, what possibilities there are for the use of shaft screws and what material they can be made of. Furthermore, we would like to give you a little more information on how shaft screws can be manufactured. Basically, this type of stud bolt is almost only used in the industrial production of technical equipment, in fixture construction and model making. But also in the handicraft of locksmiths these screws are more and more often a topic, which can make the work much easier. Let us first come to the assembly of metal shaft screws. This screw, or rather this pin with the shaft is designed in such a way that this shaft, which is blank and without a thread, has a short thread afterwards. Only this small socket with the threaded body is the part that can later be inserted or screwed into a threaded hole. In order to make screwing into the threaded hole possible at all, the shaft screw on the head, if there is a head, has an inserted slot. This slot can be used with any screwdriver to screw the pin securely into the threaded hole until it stops. So it can be said that this screw does not create a real connection, but is rather a kind of centering pin over which components can be inserted with a perfect fit. For example, in mould making, shaft screws are very often used as positioning pins, so that the two mould halves can always be in exactly the same position after opening and during assembly. Steel is always used as the base material for shaft screws. This can be coated or even blank if the screws are used on machines that are very oily, so that the shaft cannot corrode. In recent times, however, the screws used as stainless steel V2A or stainless steel V4A have become more and more popular. Only these two alloys are decisive when it comes to preventing rust (corrosion). However, you will certainly know better which properties you need to pay attention to with your shaft screws.

The manufacture of shaft screws
Now it is the same with the slotted stainless steel / steel shaft screws as with the other screws or special fasteners, these must first be manufactured so that they can also be screwed into technical equipment or on machines and devices, for example as nipples or trip cams. Since of course thousands of technicians or fitters all over Europe screw these pins with a shaft every day, it is probably always good to know how these parts are also produced in machines and equipment so that you can get a feeling for them. Of course we did not want to miss this opportunity and did not spare any effort and work. In the next section the complete production process was created. In order to be able to manufacture and produce these shaft screws, you always need a CNC machine or a screw machine. At the beginning of the set-up all data such as feeds and speeds and all other parameters are loaded. This is the only way the machine knows what exactly has to be done and how the processes are to be controlled. Furthermore, the machining chuck is located inside the CNC machine to hold the shaft screws to be machined and to carry out the processes. Outside there is almost always a bar feeder, if it is thicker raw material, or if it is thinner shaft diameter, it is also wound on a drum as strand material. In this way the wire can be fed once and the production of the shaft screws can begin. For this purpose, the end face is always turned flat and provided with a chamfer at the beginning of production. Directly after this, the head of the shaft screw is slotted, which can be done with a side milling cutter. Once this process is completed, the screws are cut off and the thread is then rolled or rolled on. This process is completed to such an extent that the shaft is now rotated under high pressure between two thread rolls so that the thread can be transferred from the thread rolls to the shaft screw. Now the chamfering at the end of the thread and the screw is finished. This can now be stored to be shipped to you when you order.
