#6 Nuts Bolt Manufacturing Process
Step1 Cold heading
1. Straightening of wire: Wire is fed from the mechanical coil through straightening machine
2. Cutting of wire: The straight wire goes through the machine that cut the wire into the required size and dies cut the head of the screw into a predefined shape.
3. Creating screw blank: The heading machine create screw head which consist of open or closed dies that either required one punch or two punch ( closed dies create more accurate screw bank)
The cold heading machine produces 150 to 600 screw blanks per minute
Step 2 Thread rolling
4. Thread cutting: The screw blanks are fed into the thread cutting dies from a vibrating hopper.
The vibrating hopper guide the screw blanks down a chute to dies and make sure that the screw blank incorrect feed position
5. Blank cutting: The screw blank is cut down using one of the following methods
Method 1) Reciprocating die method: in this method, two dies are used to cut the screw thread, where one die is stationary and another is move In a reciprocating manner and screw blank is rolled between two dies
Method 2) center less cylindrical die method: in this method, screw blank is rolled between two to three round dies to create the threads
Method 3) planetary rotary die method: in this method, planetary rotary dies to hold the screw blank stationary and die cutting machines are rolled around the screw blank.
All of these methods produce high-quality screw.
