Pal nuts are very special nuts that serve a single purpose. Such pal nuts are intended to protect normal hexagon nuts from voluntary and unintentional opening. But in this article we would like to go into more detail about these nuts. But we do not only want to shed light on this point, we also want to talk about the materials used for pal nuts and explain the exact function of such pal nuts. In order to give you a complete overview of the individual pal nuts, we would also like to go into more detail about our stock program of pal nuts made of steel or stainless steel (V2A or V4A). When we come to the end of this article, we would also like to give you some insights into how such sheet metal pal nuts are manufactured and what the individual processes during production look like. However, we would like to start with the construction of a pal nut made of steel or stainless steel. In principle, this is a sheet metal nut with a high bent nose on all sides. These noses fit exactly over a standard hexagonal nut, which is placed on top. These lips, which are folded up on the pal nut, have only one reason: the pal nut cannot allow any twisting in comparison to the hexagon nut and thus forms a unit with the hexagon nut. The special feature of a pal nut, however, is that it has so-called bulges at the front edge of the sheet metal where the hex nut and the component to be secured form a pressure connection, which can protrude in the untightened state. If the hexagonal nut is now screwed in at a thread and the palm nut sheet is placed underneath, the bulged out shape can be clamped very slowly by screwing in the nut with pressure between the workpiece and the nut. This created resistance of the pal nut, lets a permanent pressure build up. This permanent pressure is good for preventing the secured hexagon nut from loosening automatically in case of vibrations. Now we come to the material used for the pal nuts. In principle the normal steel is mostly used, which can be silver-plated. But for many applications corrosion protection is required. Here, the partially resistant or resistant materials such as V2A or V4A are always used as stainless steel for pal nuts.
Our delivery program of pal nuts - Buy online in our Online Shop
It is only understandable that the subject of safety is playing an increasingly important role, especially in technical systems, that the demand for pal nuts made of stainless steel or steel is naturally also becoming more and more important and the demand for such pal nuts is constantly increasing. At the same time, very specific demands are placed on the pal nut to be used. This must always be provided with a bulge so that when the nut is tightened, a permanent pressure can be built up. Now there are already some online shops that offer pal nuts in different versions, but the delivery time should always be short, which cannot always be guaranteed. For this reason, we have also decided to offer our customers pal nuts made of steel or stainless steel for our customers in our online shop. We succeeded and now our customers have the possibility to buy their pal nuts made of steel or stainless steel quickly and cheaply in our online shop. We have not lost sight of the security issue when buying pal nuts and have converted our entire website to the secure SSL certificate. Thereby all orders and orders can be transferred to our merchandise management system in an encrypted form, so that an access from outside is no longer possible. Let us also lose a few words in this context, how an optimal purchase process should look like, if you want to buy the pal nuts through our online shop. We can safely assume that you have also found our website, because you have found our pal nuts entry in a large search engine and this entry was displayed to you.

Now we can put together your online purchase and send it to you.
The production of pal nuts from steel or stainless steel
Now we have already arrived at the last article, where we will exclusively deal with the production of pal nuts made of stainless steel or sheet steel. We would like to give you an insight so that you know how such sheet metal pal nuts can be manufactured in a favourable and economic way. It must be said that such a pal nut production should always be carried out on so-called sheet metal punching machines with integrated forming. Such sheet metal punching machines including forming are usually always CNC controlled machines, which are loaded by a CNC program and should always have a loader connected. For the production of pal nuts, the sheet metal plate, which can be placed in steel or stainless steel, can be placed on the table of the loader. To ensure that such punching machines also have the right shape to produce pal nuts, there must be a separate mould, which is designed and installed as a punching and forming tool. Such cutting dies are unique and can be used individually for each size of pal nuts to be produced. Once the cutting die, i.e. the tool, has been positioned and set for production, the CNC program can still be loaded. Once all zero points have been set and all metal sheets have been positioned in the loader in the correct thickness, the start button for the pal nut production can be pressed. Now the first metal sheets and the punching device are guided and the punching process can begin. Now the blanks are punched out and at the same time pressed into the appropriate form, so that the wings are raised and the curvature on the palm nut is pressed in. Now thousands of such pal nuts can be punched out of stainless steel or steel and then collected in a collecting tray. If enough of such pal nuts are now ready, these pal nuts can be sent to annealing, if the sheet metal requires it, so that a spring sheet can be made from the palm nut. Of course, it is also possible to punch out hardened sheets that are ready at the same time and form them into pal nuts under high pressure. However, this option depends on the inserted sheets. The finished pal nuts can then be stored in our warehouse and, if you purchase them from our online shop, they can be shipped to you.
