Round nuts are round nuts which are usually equipped with an internal thread. Such round nuts are used in very special applications. So it can be said that round nuts are not common nuts like the hexagon nuts.
Can you imagine a life without round nuts? Certainly not, because how else would so many technical processes that run on machines and technical equipment be realized? All these processes can only be made possible, among other things by using metal round nuts. The spirits are now arguing about the exact definition, because the term round nut is not really present. Spacer sleeves with a thread can also be described as a round nut. These have a sleeve shape and are usually available from relatively short to very long. In this article we would like to explain to you a little more about how round nuts can be used, the materials from which they can be obtained commercially and how these nuts with the round shape are also manufactured. As with the other nuts, round nuts are also used for fastening by means of a thread, so that screw connections can be joined together by means of a screw and a round nut to form a fixed and also detachable connection. Normally we all know normal hexagon nuts, which have a hexagon on the outside, which can be held with an open-end wrench or a ring spanner in order to make a firm screw connection possible. The round nuts do not have a hexagon and also no other possibilities (usually) to hold them tight and counter hold. They are simply attached and can be held in place with a water pipe wrench under certain circumstances. Round nuts are usually always slightly longer than normal nuts, so that they can be screwed on from both sides under certain circumstances. For this reason, round nuts are also used as spacers, as already mentioned, whereby two components can be firmly connected while maintaining a defined distance. The material used for round nuts is always normal steel or mild steel as standard materials. This is often provided with a coating so that corrosion is considerably reduced, but this can never be completely excluded. If you do not want to have any corrosion when using round steel nuts, you should always use the version of stainless steel round nuts. A stainless steel alloy of V2A is usually sufficient for all common applications inside closed rooms or outside in the open.
Our delivery program of round nuts - buy online in our online shop
As the demand for round nuts made of stainless steel and also steel has increased constantly, we also offer our customers several different types of round nuts made of steel or stainless steel (V2A and V4A). The industry needs more and more to keep their technical equipment in operation and also to build and sell new machines. With round nuts, however, not only are connections created which are fixed and can be released again, but also certain functions on machines are made possible, where the round nuts are screwed onto steel parts in order to use these as trip cams, for example to trigger limit switches at a certain point in time. You will quickly see that the areas of application for round nuts are almost unlimited and we just wanted to give you examples where these parts are used thousands of times a day. With our online shop we offer all customers in Germany and the rest of Europe the possibility to buy your round nuts around the clock at a reasonable price in our online shop. This saves time and is fast and uncomplicated in the process. In order to increase the security when buying your products in our online shop even more, we converted the entire internet presence some time ago and now the entire website runs on an encrypted secure domain. This creates even more security when handling your sensitive data and when exporting data to our merchandise management system.

The production of round nuts
In the last article on this page you will also learn how to make normal round nuts that look like a spacer sleeve or round nuts with a trapezoidal thread and a slot to counteract with a tool. So that all these round nuts can also be installed and processed in machines and technical equipment, they must of course first be manufactured. Many people and also fitters process hundreds of round nuts in various applications every day, but very few know how these parts are actually manufactured and produced. To enable the production of round nuts, either normal bar turning machines controlled by CNC are used, or directly on CNC screw machines. This plays an important role and makes no difference. On both machines a CNC program is loaded with all the data for the production of round nuts and parameters such as feeds and speeds are also permanently stored. Behind the machine and its processing chuck, there is either a drum magazine, which has the thinner strand material wound up as raw material, or, in the case of thicker round material made of stainless steel or steel, a bar feeder, which feeds the material as required when the machine produces the next round nut. Once the program has been loaded with all parameters, production can begin. First of all, the round material is loaded into the chuck. Now the core hole diameter of the later thread, which has to be cut, is drilled in. It is also important that all inner and outer chamfers are set and that no burr is allowed to appear. Once this machining stage is complete, the thread is cut under a lot of oil. If this section is also completed during the production of the round nut, then, if necessary, the milling of a frontal milling as a slot for the reception of a tool is also carried out. If this step is also completed, the round nut can be finally cut off and is again provided with an inner and outer chamfer on the face. Now the nut is thoroughly washed and freed from oil residues. Now all finished round nuts can be stored in our warehouse to be shipped to you when you order.
