Bolts can come in a wide range of different sizes and shapes, but the basic
production process generally remains the same. It starts with cold forging steel
wire into the right shape, followed by heat treating to improve strength and
surface treating to improve durability, before being packed for shipment.
How nuts and bolts are manufactured:
nuts and bolts are made in 2 steps. 1. Basic shape : The head of the bolt
(hex/allen cap etc) and shape of nut(hex/winged etc) is forged out of metal
either by cold or hot forging. The threading on the bolts are usually rolled or
turned or made using Die.
What is the purpose of nuts and bolts:
Nuts are almost always used in conjunction with a mating bolt to fasten multiple
parts together. The two partners are kept together by a combination of their
thread friction (with slight elastic deformation), a slight stretching of the
bolt and compression of the parts to be held together.
Where do nuts come from:
Most nuts grow on trees and bushes, but some nuts (such as peanuts) grow underground.
Most nuts (such as cashews, pictured below) grow inside a soft casing that hardens
into a shell.
How many different nuts and bolts are there.
A Gallery of 12 Common Bolt Types. By definition, bolts are threaded fasteners that
are intended to be mated with a nut. Here is a gallery showing 12 standard types of
bolts. Bolts are threaded fasteners that are intended to be mated with a nut.
Types of bolts:
3.1 Anchor bolt. 3.2 Carriage bolt. 3.3 Elevator bolt.
3.4 Flange bolt. 3.5 Hanger bolt. 3.6 Hexagon bolt/Tap bolt.
3.7 Huck bolt. 3.8 Lag bolt.
What are examples of fasteners:
Examples of fasteners include: nuts and bolts, screws, pins and rivets; examples
of integral joints include: seams, crimps, snap-fits and shrink-fits.
Business: Production of precision turned products,
generic nuts, bolts, screws, rivets and washers is yet another metal related business
idea that an entrepreneur can start. You can be rest assured that if you go into the
production of nuts, bolts and screws, you will have a huge market for your products.
It is a business idea that is not season bound and metal bolt, nut, screw, rivet,
washer and industrial fastening products are fabricated to industry standard and
are designed for the wider market.
Wishing you all the best,
