|Indented Hex / Washer
head screws are available with and without slots. The
combination of a slotted indented hex/washer head is convenient
especially for consumer assembled products since either a wrench
or slotted screwdriver may be used for assembly.
indented head style screw is also available with or without
a washer base. This style hex head is ideal for high volume
production assemblies where power-driving tools are used.
The washer base is formed directly onto the head of the screw
eliminating the need to inventory multiple pieces. Production
increases as the loose washer no longer needs to be slipped
onto the screw base.
Indented hex head screws can be used as an option
to a more costly trimmed hex head screw. They are available
as threadforming, thread-cutting, and machine screw threads.
Indented hex heads are easily cold formed and do not require
a secondary trimming operation thereby saving on fastener
manufacturing costs and ultimately keeping your cost lower.
