What is a Stepped Weld Nut? What is the Difference with a Hexagonal Nut?

What is a step weld nut?

The stepped weld nut is a stepped nut suitable for welding outside the nut. Generally, it is made of weldable materials and thicker and suitable for welding. Welding is equivalent to turning two separate parts into a whole. The metal is melted at high temperature and then mixed together and then cooled. An alloy is added in the middle, and the inside is a molecule. The effect of force is generally stronger than the strength of the parent body.


Welding, the strength is relatively large, and the range of use is wide. But due to the high temperature, the connected parts will be deformed and cannot be disassembled, and some active metals cannot be welded by the usual methods. The experiment of welding parameters depends on the fusion size of the weld. Adjust the welding parameters according to the size of the fusion, until the defects are eliminated. Of course, the quality of welding is related to pre-welding treatment, dust removal, and oil stains.

What is the difference with a hex nut?

Hexagon nuts are used in conjunction with bolts and screws to connect and tighten parts. Among them, hexagonal nuts are widely used. Hexagonal nuts are used for machines, equipment, or structures with rough surfaces and low precision requirements. Custom-made hexagonal thick nuts are used for machines, equipment, or structures with relatively smooth surfaces and high precision requirements. The thickness of the hexagonal thick nut is relatively thick, and it is mostly used in occasions that often require assembly and disassembly. The thickness of the hexagonal thin nut is relatively thin, and it is mostly used in occasions where the surface space of the connected parts is restricted. Nuts are fasteners with internal threads and used with bolts to transmit movement or power.
