Nuts Bolts Making

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 threaded.

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, machine tools, agricultural machines and implements etc.

Business Registration:
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 reliable supplier.

Making Process:
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.

Wishing you all the best,
