Among the most widely used and trusted fasteners in the world are screws. From home repairs to workplace use in a broad range of industries, people everywhere rely on screws to assemble and repair objects. So it makes complete sense that a large portion of Gould Fasteners’ inventory would consist of screws. As a major Canadian supplier of industrial fastening products for many sectors, Gould Fasteners carries an impressive variety of screws.
Similar to a bolt, but often requiring no nut to secure the tail end, a screw is usually constructed of metal and has a helical ridge, male or external thread. Users fasten parts by turning the screws into material, causing the ridge to cut grooves into the material to secure the parts together and prevent pullout. While some are designed to mate with a female or internal thread, in a nut or an object specially designed for the screw, others are meant to cut helical grooves in softer material during insertion.
Gould Fasteners has a wide range of screws, including captive-panel, drillet, insulated, machine, miniature, sealing, set, weld, and wing screws. There is also a variety of head types, such as button, fillister, flat, headless, hex, and PAN. Materials available include alloy steel, stainless steel, aluminum, brass, bronze, copper, Monel, nickel alloys, nylon, and titanium. Many of these comply with MIL-SPEC certified requirements, which makes them suitable for military applications. Other screws have been designed specifically for aerospace or electronic applications.
Gould Fasteners has partnered with highly reputed manufacturers for all of its products, and some of them offer custom-to-print screws with specially designed features, finishes, or materials for specific uses. Among these manufacturers of screws are Amatom, Crescent, Fastener Innovation Technologies, Lyn-Tron, RAF Electronic Hardware, Unicorp, and ZāGO.
High quality and client service are Gould Fasteners’ priorities with all products, and the company employs a team that pre-inspects a statistical quantity of screws for defects at the company’s Mississauga, Ont. facility before shipping them to customers.
