What to Expect From the Threaded Rods in Your Industrial Machine

Dependable ACME of Westbury, New York, sells a lot of ACME threaded rods. These metal fasteners, also known as studs, can be made stainless or with other metals and with threads on both ends or just one. Some rods have threading extending partially while others have it all the way. Basically, when you have an application where tension is applied, threaded rods come in handy.

Threaded Rods vs Bolts

While somewhat similar to bolts, threaded rods are different because they have threading on both ends (whereas bolts only have threading on one end) and they’re usually longer than bolts.

Using Threaded Rods as a Fastener

Who might use threaded rods? Construction companies working on buildings or bridges can use them, as well as any industry designing machinery that has to hold together well while withstanding both tension and vibrations.

To stabilize a structure, use a threaded rod as a fastener. The threading causes a tightening action thanks to the rotational movement. Meanwhile, the threading allows other fixings like bolts and nuts to screw or fasten to it. Ideally, then, threaded rods act like a “pin” to connect or align two materials together, including materials like concrete, wood or metal.
