An adjustment screw is a screw used for adjustment in manufacturing and production lines, such as in factories, and is widely used for adjusting the position of workpieces and the height of jigs and tools.
An adjustment screw has a very small pitch to allow for fine adjustment, and must be secured with nuts to preserve their position after adjustment and prevent fluctuation.
An adjustment screw is also used as a stopper to hold the object in the required position, so the contact surface must be designed for repeated contact, and durability must also be considered.
Adjustment screws are used on production lines and in machining shops, etc., in various ways depending on the location and uses of the screw.
For example, adjustment screws can be combined with a micrometer to make the adjustment visible. As well, a ball can be incorporated into the tip of the adjustment screws to make point contact with the workpiece for more precise adjustment.
In addition, adjustment screws with resin bonded to the screw to prevent damage to the workpiece are manufactured in a variety of ways to suit different applications.
Adjustment screws are manufactured for the purpose of adjustment, and various types of screws have been devised to suit the location and uses of the screw.
For example, the following are examples of specifications for a set screw with a mortise, commonly called an "IMO screw."
In addition, precision adjustment screws have thread pitch of 0.15 or 0.25 mm and a brass bushing and stainless steel spindle for smooth adjustment.
In addition, adjustment screws can be combined with a micrometer so that the adjustment can be checked visually, or with a ball embedded in the tip so that the contact surface with the object is a point contact.
