BBI's partnership with ITS ensures that all socket products purchased from BBI are meticulously manufactured utilizing industry "best practices" and, have been rigidly tested to insure product reliability and superior performance.

Critical Manufacturing Steps Closely Controlled by YFS ANNEALING

This process is important in preparing the raw material for cold heading as it changes the material structure into a finer crystalline state to allow for proper cold forming. The closely controlled heat and atmospheric conditions in the annealing process at YFS insure against brittle material events that can potentially lead to internal cracks within the finished component

FORMING

By utilizing rigid process controls out on the manufacturing floor during the heading process, all YFS sockets exemplify superior fit, form and function. Tooling and dies are closely monitored for fatigue and wear at each forming station to help maintain sharp dimensions and tight tolerances.

THREAD FORMING

Thread rolling plates are meticulously monitored to produce consistent corners and angles in the thread profile, allowing for a uniform distribution of stress in the threaded area of each YFS component.

HEAT TREATING

During heat treatment, YFS closely monitors the level of carbon in the atmosphere. The proper management of quenching, tempering and temperature throughout the heat treat cycle is imperative in producing components that meet the correct mechanical and chemical specifications. As each process above impacts the integrity of the finished component —What socket product would you prefer to use in your final assemblies?

Applications

  • Description
  • Use / Application
  • Socket Screws
  • Socket head cap screws
  • Flat Socket Cap Screws
  • Button Socket Cap Screws
  • Socket Shoulder Screws
  • Low Head Socket Cap Screws
  • Dowel Pins
  • Pipe Plugs
  • Set Screws (Multiple point Types)
  • Cup Point Set Screws
  • Knurl Cup Set Screws
  • Cone Point Set Screws
  • Oval Point Set Screws
  • Half Dog Set Screws
  • Full Dog Set Screws
  • Flat Point Set Screws
  • Used in fastening or clamping components together, die castings, and machine assemblies among other use.
  • Used in applications where counter sinking is desired. Used when a flush finish is required for either safety or appearance requirements.
  • Used when appearance is a factor and clamping material is too thin for counter sink. Examples are end panels. display shelving, and carts.
  • Used in many tool and die applications as well as stationary guides, pulley shafts, moving shafts, or pivots.
  • Used in applications where not enough clearance is available for a standard socket head cap screw.
  • Formed ends. controled heat treat: dose tolerances: standard for die work: also used as bearings. gages. precision parts. etc.
  • 3/4' taper (dry seal to help prevent leaks).
    7(8 taper (flush seal to seat plug level with standard tapped hole).
  • Used to fasten shaft collars. gears, and knobs on shafts or where frequent adjustments are involved.
  • Used against hardened shafts or where frequent adjustments are needed and no locking point is required.
  • Similar to cup point but where vibration might be a problem. Knurls lock onto seating material and prevent screw from loosening.
  • Used for permanent location of machine parts to shafts. Also used for pivots and fine adjustments.
  • The oval point is used where frequent adjustments may be required. It may be used in applications where the point contacts the mating part at an angle.
  • Used for permanent location of one part to another. Point is often set into a dried hole. May sometimes take the place of a dowel pin.
  • Used for permanent location of one part to another. Point is often set into a driled hole. May sometimes take the place of a dowel pin.
  • Used when parts must frequently be reset. Causes very minor damage to part it seats against.
