Do you understand the screws of medical equipment?
I believe everyone has heard of medical equipment, but perhaps they are not very familiar with the screws on medical equipment. So let me take you to understand the screws on medical equipment!
The thread of a medical device screw is a shape with uniform spiral protrusions on the solid outer surface or inner surface cross-section, while the fit of threaded fasteners refers to the degree of tightness between the threads that are mutually rotating, as well as the combination of deviations and tolerances on the internal and external threads.
What are the stainless steel screws and accessories for medical equipment? For unfamiliar people, stainless steel screws and others are not familiar with them. Many purchases of stainless steel screws focus on the performance of stainless steel screws, such as their rust and corrosion resistance. Let’s share with you the types of stainless steel screws: Medical equipment stainless steel screws have the characteristics of rust prevention and corrosion resistance. Due to the metal nature of stainless steel, stainless steel screws cannot be hardened, and the strength of stainless steel screws itself is generally between 4.8 and 6.8. Therefore, when looking for screw fasteners, the material should also be selected based on the actual use of the product.
If screws with equal strength are required for mechanical equipment, then carbon steel material needs to be selected for hardening treatment. The hardening treatment of carbon steel screws can reach 12.9 and above. If the product requires rust and corrosion resistance, stainless steel screws with rust and corrosion resistance can be selected. The performance of screw fasteners made of different materials varies, and we need to choose which screw to use based on the characteristics of different materials. In short, stainless steel screws are generally between 4.8 and 6.8, and cannot be hardened. However, stainless steel screws have corrosion resistance and rust resistance, which are also characteristics of stainless steel.
