Nuts Bolts Making, Small Business:
Nuts and bolts are a type of industrial fasteners used in
various products, machines, structures etc. Every industry
uses these items on a regular basis. Bolt is a piece of
metal rod, whose one end is unsettled and another end is
The nut is the item which rolls on these threads.
Nut and bolts are available in various shapes, designs, and
sizes. Having knowledge in mechanical engineering is a plus
but it is not mandatory. With substantial capital investment
can start nuts and bolts making business from home also.
Market Potential: The demand of nuts and bolts is influenced
by the following factors:
• Transportation industries, Railways, aircraft, wagon,
bicycles, automobile, body builders, etc.
• Electrical industries like manufacturing of transformer,
electric motors, fans etc.
• Building activities such as the construction of bridges,
fabrication of various steel structure etc.
• Other heavy and light industries, steel and wooden furniture,

Registration your business with ROC. Obtain Trade License
from local Municipal Authority. Register with DIC as SSI
Unit. Apply for ‘consent to establish’ and ‘consent to
operate’ both from Pollution Control Board. If you want
to establish a full-scale factory setup then you should
apply for Factory License. Get Vat Registration.
Raw Materials & Machinery: Main raw material is the hexagonal
rod of the desired size. For bolt manufacturing, the required
major raw material is MS rounds. Arrange packaging consumables.
Establish machinery such as Double stroke solid die cold
head forging machine, Head trimming machine, Thread rolling
machine, Bull block wire drawing machine, straightening
machine, Power press, Planting tank, Steel polishing barrel
with electric motor, Automatic nut forming plant, Nut tapping
machine, Weighing scale etc. Procure the machinery from a
In nuts manufacturing, procure the hexagonal rod of the
desired size. Then, cut the nuts on the automatic nut-cutting
machine. Cut nuts blanks are drilled and tapped on the
nut-tapping machine. Debug the nuts in the polishing barrel.
In bolts making, you have to make the procured MS rounds
straight. The rounds are picked in the acid tanks, washed
and drawn into a drawing machine. The cleaned rod is fed
into the cold heading machine. In the machine, cut the
one end of the rod to the desired length with cutting stroke,
simultaneously the head formation takes at another end.
