What is Nut (component)?

A nut is a part that is screwed together with a bolt or screw for fastening. A component that must be used in all manufacturing machinery is divided into carbon steel, stainless steel, non-ferrous metals (such as copper), and other major types according to different materials.

Nuts are parts that tightly connect mechanical equipment. Nuts and bolts of the same specification can be connected together through the inner thread.

For example, M4-P0.7 nuts can only be connected with M4-P0.7 series bolts (in nuts, M4 means that the inner diameter of the nut is about 4mm, and 0.7 means that the distance between the two threads is 0.7mm);

The same is true for American products. For example, 1/4-20 nuts can only be matched with 1/4-20 screws (1/4 means that the inner diameter of the nut is about 0.25 inches, and 20 means that there are 20 teeth in each inch).

Nut Standard basis

According to the attributes of nuts, there are mainly national standards (GB), German standards (DIN), international standards (ISO), Japanese standards (JIS), American standards (ASTM/ANSI), and other standards.

Among them, the national standard, the German standard, and the Japanese standard are represented by M (for example, M8, M16), while the American system and the British system are represented by fractions or # (such as 8#, 10#, 1/4, 3/8).

Principle of Locknut

The locknut is composed of two parts, each part has a staggered cam. Because the internal wedge design slope angle is greater than the bolt nut angle, this combination is tightly bitten into a whole, when vibration occurs, it prevents The protruding parts of the loose nut are staggered to generate lifting tension, so as to achieve a perfect anti-loose effect.

Scope of  locknut applications

Cars, trucks, buses, compressors, construction machinery, wind power equipment, agricultural machinery, foundry industry, drilling equipment, shipbuilding industry, mining equipment, oil drilling rigs (onshore or offshore), utilities, rail transit, transmission systems, Metallurgical equipment, electronic products, etc.

Fasten the screw nut


To lock the outer joint of the harness or other pipe fittings.

The working principle of the nut is self-locking by the friction between the nut and the bolt. However, the reliability of this self-locking will be reduced in dynamic loads.

On some important occasions, we will take some anti-loosening measures to ensure the reliability of the nut locking. One of the anti-loose measures is to use a lock nut.

There are also three types of lock nuts.

The first is to use two identical nuts to screw on the same bolt and add a tightening torque between the two nuts to make the bolt connection reliable.

The second is a special lock nut, which needs to be used together with a lock washer. The special lock nut is not a hexagonal nut, but a middle-round nut.

There are 3, 4, 6, or 8 gaps on the circumference of the nut (depending on the size of the nut and the product series of the manufacturer). Several notches are not only the focus of the tightening tool but also the entry point of the locking washer.

The third type is to drill through threaded holes from the outer surface of the nut to the inner thread surface (usually two, distributed at 90 on the outer surface), used to screw in small diameter countersunk screws, the purpose is to thread Apply a centripetal force to prevent the lock nut from loosening.

A lock nut with better quality sold on the market is inlaid with a small piece of copper that is consistent with the thread of the lock nut on the inner surface of the nut to prevent the radial jack screw from directly contacting the locked thread and damaging the latter.

This kind of lock nut has gradually begun to be applied in the occasion of the shaft end locking of rotating parts, such as the anti-loosening of the bearing of the ball screw mounting end.

The second anti-loose method is more reliable than the first, but the structure is relatively complicated. Compared with the first two, the third clock has the characteristics of a better anti-loose effect, simpler and more beautiful structure, and smaller axial size.

Nut material

Carbon steel, stainless steel, copper, alloy, etc.

Other nuts

Embedded nut

Copper nuts made of various embossed wires (usually lead brass, such as H59, 3604, 3602). The embedded knurled brass nuts we come into contact with are all processed by precision automatic lathes. The reference standard for embedded knurled copper nuts comes from the national standard GB/T809.

The main operation method of the embedded knurled copper nut is injection molding. After heating, it is embedded in the plastic part or direct injection molding. If mold injection is used, the melting point of PA/NYLOY/PET is above 200°C, and the embedded nut is hot melted After the plastic parts are inserted, the temperature rises rapidly.

After injection molding, the plastic body rapidly cools and crystallizes, and becomes hard. If the temperature of the embedded nut is still at a high temperature, it may be poured to the place where the copper nut and the plastic part are in contact and begin to lose or crack.

Therefore, copper nuts instead of carbon steel nuts are used in the injection molding of embedded nuts.

There are two ways to form the outer grain knurling of the embedded copper nut. One is to use the copper raw material to draw the pattern and then produce on the upper equipment.

Generally, the drawing pattern in this way is straight, and the other is to use The round copper material is directly embossed while tapping the teeth during the production process.

This processing method can produce some non-standard size knurled copper nuts. The embossed shape of the embedded copper nut can be selected by the user, such as mesh, Various rolling patterns such as eight-character embossing, and herringbone embossing.

Alias ​​and usage

Copper nuts, also known as embedded nuts and embedded copper nuts or plastic embedded nuts, are divided into hot-melt copper nuts, hot-pressed copper nuts, embedded copper nuts, and ultrasonic copper nuts according to different methods of use.

This product is widely used in the embedded parts of mobile phone shells/pen book shells/injected parts/plastic parts. It is used as an internal thread. Generally, the outer circle is embossed to prevent sliding.
