Sems Screws

The SEM or combi screw is the simple idea of combining a screw with one or more free spinning captive washers into one unit…

Not only do SEMs fasteners reduce part count and wastage -no more lost washers that have slipped out of hand and rolled into a dark place never to be seen again!  SEMs also benefit the user with time saved on applications when using them. With the operator only needing to fasten exactly what they need to, without having to fumble with one or a collection of washers onto a thread whilst applying tightening torque, the simplicity of having the washers attached to an all-in-one encapsulated unit simplifies the task to speed up production and minimise errors in application.

There are many varients of the SEMS screw and with our extensive range we are one of Europes largest stockists.  Below you will find more information relating to this type of fastener.
