Square nuts have four faces on one nut. Square nuts can be used in structural engineering as normal fixing nuts or as square insert nuts. When selecting the material for square nuts, steel or stainless steel is always available.
Square nuts belong - as do the other nuts - to the large family of nuts. There are countless nuts in the most unimaginable versions and for the most diverse applications. The square nuts are actually still a relic from the beginning of the fastening elements. Square nuts made of stainless steel were so sought-after at that time because they were easy to manufacture. This was a great advantage at a time when there were no machines to produce square nuts quickly and cheaply. So they could be punched well or forged. This made the production so interesting and yet simple. However, the interest has by no means flattened, but the demand for square nuts in the industry is still very much in demand. So these nuts are used in mechanical engineering and in particular to be inserted into aluminium profiles (into the groove) and thus also to take a screw firmly with the thread and to make a firm connection with it. Then the square nuts function as sliding blocks which can be freely pushed back and forth in the groove of the profile. The square nuts are also used as the main component of a cage nut. Square nuts are inserted into a cage nut. The cage nut also consists of two separate components. If you want more information about stainless steel square nuts, please visit our blog, which contains some more information about these nut types. In order to be able to clip the slot nuts into the groove without dismantling the end boards, it is also possible, if the square nut is narrow enough, to simply clip it in laterally so that it can slip into the groove. The material of which the square nuts can be made is very different. On the one hand, a standard nut is made of normal steel (mild steel), but this must always be provided with a protective coating, otherwise corrosion would set in too quickly. This is the classic material. However, if the application of square nuts is to be used for a longer period of time in damp rooms or outdoors, a stainless steel alloy should be used in any case. The most common alloy is always V2A stainless steel. However, if you would like to use these square nuts in pleasure or on the high seas on boats and yachts, you should definitely use the alloy type V4A stainless steel. Because only this alloy defies all applications and environments, as well as in chemical industrial locations or in direct contact with acids and alkalis.
Our delivery program of square nuts - Buy online in our Online Shop
In recent years, square nuts have become more and more important in industry and also in the private sector, and there has been a strong increase in the demand for stainless steel square nuts and steel square nuts on the market. Special fasteners and connecting elements thus dominate the picture in the metal industry considerably, and the trade is therefore obliged to meet the constantly increasing demand from industry. For this reason, online shops have continually expanded their range of square nuts in recent years in order to satisfy the demand. When we started to build up our company, we started to use the standard nuts (the hexagon nuts) to quickly supply our customers in Germany and Europe with all these products. But soon we also had to realize that special nuts were in great demand. So we started to include all square nuts made of stainless steel (V2A and V4A) in our product range. The first thing we had to do was to look around and find a reliable supplier who could supply us with large quantities of square nuts in a very good quality. Now we are supplied with some sizes of stainless steel square nuts in serh high quality. With our online shop we now offer all our customers the possibility to buy their square nuts around the clock in our shop for a reasonable price and have the goods delivered to your home or company. In order to ensure that the purchase is secure, we have converted the entire website to the secure SSL certificate, which promises serious security precautions. The data access by third parties is now considerably restricted. This is due to the fact that your data is now very secure and is also transferred to us in encrypted form during data export. So it is no longer readable. While we are on the subject of the shop, we would also like to briefly explain how a purchase of your virgin nuts should be handled so that everything can be processed smoothly and quickly. But first of all, a warm welcome, because surely you have also come to us via the search word "square nuts" using one of the major search engines? Then take some time now to select the products you want to buy from us (square nuts). Simply place them in the shopping cart in the quantity you require. If this first step is completed, the second step follows when buying your square nuts. Now create your own account in our shop. To do so, enter all your data, such as your delivery address and your email and password. If you would like to complete the purchase of the nuts, simply check out the shopping cart, which will offer you different payment methods in the following steps. Select the method that is best for you and indicate the purchase amount for your square nuts. If the payment was successful, your order confirmation will now await you.
The production of square nuts
Now we would like to briefly explain a few words about the manufacturing process of square nuts. Most fitters and private users know how to insert steel or stainless steel square nuts into grooves or use their other functions, but most of them know nothing about their manufacture. If you are interested in more details, you now have the opportunity to read this article more closely. In order to be able to install and screw square nuts in industry, they must first be manufactured on automatic machines. To enable the production of square nuts, machines called CNC machines or also CNC screwing machines are required. These machines are always loaded by means of a CNC program, which has all the parameters and other significant commands, so that the machine knows how to carry out the processes. In order to enable a cost-effective production of square nuts and to show a certain economy, every modern machine has a loader attached to the CNC machine, which is electrically coupled. The raw material for the square nuts is stored in this loader. This is in this case a square raw material as solid material. Now the machine has the possibility, when it is started, to feed the single bars for the production. Once this process of production is started, the first thing that is done is to drill a core hole into the square of the nut. Once this section is completed, the cutting of the geiwind into the square nut is done. Then a chamfer is applied to the outer edge of the square and the threaded hole is deburred and slightly countersunk. When all these production steps have been completed, the almost finished square nut can only be cut off with a chisel and the nut then falls into the collection container provided for this purpose. There, all finished square nuts are collected and can then be filled into a packaging to be stored in our warehouse. Before this, all square nuts are washed and freed from the oil residues that are produced during the manufacturing process. Now the goods are stored in our warehouse and wait to be ordered by you. If your purchase of square nuts made of steel or stainless steel arrives at our warehouse, all nuts will be packed and shipped to you.
