What Should Industrial Business Owners Know About Threaded Rods?

Dependable ACME sells a variety of ACME threaded products. That said, what should industrial business owners know about threaded rods? Well, it’s a metal rod that’s threaded throughout the entire rod. If you look up the definition of threaded there are several ways to define the term, but suffice it to say something threaded involves a thin fine cord formed by spinning and twisting short fibers into a continuous strand or the ridge or groove that winds around a screw. That should give you some perspective. Meanwhile, a rod is defined as a thin, straight bar of wood or metal.

What Are Threaded Rods Made From?

Threaded rods are usually made from carbon, stainless and alloy. They’re used for construction applications since the threading allows for bolts (or other fixings) to be fastened onto the rod. In simple terms, threaded rods join two objects together. For example, they can be used to connect an item made of one material with an item made of a different material– such as metal and concrete.

Heavy Duty Thread Rods Hold Up In Harsh Environments

Round bar at a specified grade and diameter is used to make threaded rod. There are heavy-duty thread cutting machines to accomplish this task. We start with the diameter required and cut the thread into the bar – it is a longer process and some materials need to be cut multiple times as we get the specifications exact. We stock 6 and 12 foot lengths, and can custom cut whatever length you need.

So why are threaded rods commonly used? When the required length or diameter exceeds conventional bolts or screws, that’s when threaded rods come in handy. For example, big, heavy machines benefit from threaded rods.
