SET SCREW SOCKET 1/4-20X7/8 DPDOUGHPRO PROLUXE SST142078
A screw is a type of fastener, in some ways similar to a bolt typically made of metal, and characterized by a helical ridge, known as a male thread (external thread). Screws are used to fasten materials by digging in and wedging into a material when turned, while the thread cuts grooves in the fastened material that may help pull fastened materials together and prevent pull-out.
A screw drive is a system used to turn a screw. At a minimum, it is a set of shaped cavities and protrusions on the screw head that allows torque to be applied to it. Usually, it also involves a mating tool, such as a screwdriver, that is used to turn it. Other examples include Phillips head screws and screwdrivers, and Allen hex screws and wrenches.
In restaurant equipment design, sockets are common engineering elements. In general, sockets are receptacles for matching parts, tools, and components. They may serve only for mounting purposes, or they may be used to form connections and provide a source of power.
In 1983 a pizza operator had an idea that would revolutionize the pizza industry. John Lamonica and Stearns Product Development created a press that would be used to press the first dough ball. Proluxe history was made. From pizza presses to tortilla presses, panini grills to bun caramelizers, they have developed restaurant equipment featuring various innovative technologies. After 30 years of commitment to innovation for the foodservice industry, DoughPro has changed their name to ProLuxe. Their products have been providing kitchens with consistent, quality performance throughout the world. Their product line has increased to include TerraLuxe stone hearth ovens as well.
