These custom captive shoulder screws were manufactured using a modification to a COTS part for our defense customer using 18-8 stainless steel material with standard 2-56 3A thread and standard socket head dimensions. Length underneath the head was designed to .750" +/- .005" and the shoulder was turned to a diameter of .052-.054", at a length of .066" +/- .005". The thread had to be chased for each part to ensure smooth thread transitions after the additional shoulder was incorporated.

We supplied our defense customer with these custom 4140 precision 10-24 nuts after getting an initial sample run completed and tested. Tight tolerances were required on these parts, with most dimensions at +.000/-.005 or +.000/-.003 inches. Overall thickness of the nuts was set at .155" and 10-24 class 2B thread tapped all the way through. Full production of this part was at 20,000 pieces and lead time at approximately 75-90 days from order confirmation.

We had a small batch of these custom 316 stainless steel shoulder screws produced domestically for our electronics OEM customer. Partial 4-40 thread was incorporated, with a machined shoulder incorporated per our customer specifications. Due to the smaller quantity involved the hex socket drive was broached rather than cold headed - you can see the slight rough nature of the drive when zooming into the photo. The lead time for these parts was relatively fast, with 2-3 weeks for production.

Full M7 X 1.0M thread was rolled to a 6G thread fit. The slotted drive was designed to 1.81MM-2.06MM width and depth of 2.5MM at minimum. Our internal part number for this custom metric machine screw is MMSO-07035-F.
