Round Base Spot Weld T-Nuts feature a circular base with a threaded barrel rising from the center, giving the nut a "T" shape. The circular base is flat all round with no projections to prevent mating of the flange to the base material. The circular base also doubles as a flange for distributing the load evenly across the base material.
Spot Weld T-Nuts are ideal for through-the-hole and flush mount applications. The fully circular slim base allows the weld nut to be easily spot welded while eliminating the need for orientation during welding.
Round Base Spot Weld T-Nuts are available in Plain Low Carbon Steel
Spot Weld T Nuts sizes are displayed as the Thread Size (Diameter x Thread Pitch) x the Barrel Length
What are weld nuts used for?
Weld nuts are a special type of nut designed to be spot welded to another object. They come in many varieties, including projection weld nuts, retainer weld nuts, and round base weld nuts.
What is a round base t-nut?
Round base t-nuts are used in spot welding and feature a circular base with a threaded barrel rising from the center, giving the nut a "T" shape. They're used for through-the-hole and flush mount applications.
How do weld nuts work?
Weld nuts add threading to existing objects by being welded to them. While there are many kinds of weld nuts, they generally fall under two categories for how they are welded: spot welding and projection welding. In either case, weld nuts are designed to be easy to weld to the base material.
What is the difference between spot welding and projection welding?
Spot welding uses a pair of electrodes with pointed tips to heat and join pieces of metal. It is ideal for applications using carbon steel and in automation. Projection welding is very similar to spot welding, using heat generated by an electrical current to join metals. However, the electrodes used in projection welding carry more current than those used in spot welding, allowing thicker materials to be welded together. During the weld, the projections themselves absorb the heat and form the weld. It is ideal for joining metal components with embossments.
What are weld nuts made out of?
The vast bulk of weld nuts are made out of carbon steel or stainless steel due to the methods currently used to spot weld and projection weld materials together.
