FAQ

How do I mount/secure a bushing?

A bushing can be mounted either using a press-fit or slip-fit. For a press-fit, the hole should be .0002"-.0003" smaller  than the barrel diameter of the bushing. A slip fit requires a hole .0005"-.002" larger  than the barrel diameter of the bushing (and adhesive to secure the bushing in place).

What type of lubrication is used between the threads of matched sets?
We use Apiezon M Silcone-Free High-Vacuum grease for lubrication. This is applied standard to all matched sets. If you do not want lubrication applied to your matched sets, please write "no grease" on the comments section when checking out.

Can I alter or customize any of your standard items?
Yes, we are a full service machine shop, and make everything in our New Jersey facility. You can send us a RFQ with any requests, or you can attach a drawing of your own and send it to info@kozakmicro.com. Once we receive your information, we will review it and send a quote as soon as we can.

What is the maximum allowable applied force on a screw?

The list below shows the maximum applied axial forces that our screws (and matched sets) can manage before failure occurs. The maximum applied axial force is measured in two ways; first by measuring the force at which failure occurs when the screw is not moving (static), second by measuring the force at which failure occurs when the screw is moving/rotating (dynamic).  Failure is characterized by material deformation where the screw is no longer able to turn (static), and when the screw seizes due to galling (dynamic).

Please keep in mind that these load ratings are under ideal conditions. The actual maximum load may be less than stated if other forces are present. Additionally, as the applied load increases, so does galling, so it is a good idea to keep applied loads lower to prevent excessive wear.
