Shoulder Screws are unique in the fastener industry. Most screws are designed to hold items rigidly together, but the function of a shoulder screw is to allow rotational or axial motion of the component that is mounted on the screw. Common uses of these screws includes mounting gears, pulleys and other rotating parts. A cam follower is created by installing a bearing on the screw. Components can be mounted on shoulder screws and held in an axial position with springs.

A comprehensive explanation of the characteristics and uses of shoulder screws can be found in our Shoulder Screw article.

Shoulder screws are often referred to as “Shoulder Bolts” and when used in die sets they are called “Stripper Bolts”. Both inch and metric shoulder screws are in stock at Ondrives.US for immediate delivery.
