Hexagon nuts are used in conjunction with bolts and screws to connect and tighten parts. Hex nuts are also called hexagon nuts. Generally, there are many types of nuts, including hexagon nuts, round nuts, square nuts, and so on. Some standards for the nut are relatively clear. The thickness M of the hexagonal thin nut is thin, and it is mostly used in occasions where the surface space of the connected parts is limited. Next, 2H Heavy Hex Nuts Factory introduces the role of hexagon nuts:
1. The nut is made into a hexagonal shape for ease of use. On the machine, the place where the nut is installed is sometimes not sufficiently wide, and space for the wrench to tighten the nut is also quite narrow. For the hexagonal nut, you only need to turn the wrench 60 degrees at a time to tighten the nut slowly, while the square nut needs to be turned 90 degrees each time. That is to say, in order to tighten the nut, the hexagonal shape is smaller, but the octagonal nut is easy to slip due to the small contact surface between the wrench and it and is usually rarely used, so the hexagonal nut is the most convenient to use.
2. Look at the wrench, the handle and the mouth of the ordinary wrench can be an included angle of 30 degrees, so when the nut is installed in a very narrow place and the wrench cannot move freely, and for the hexagonal nut, you only need to pull a nut from the wrench. , Turn the wrench over and pull the nut again, so that by repeatedly pulling back and forth several times, the nut can be tightened.
3. The nut is made into a hexagonal shape in order to maximize the use of materials. Because in terms of strength, a large nut is stronger than a small nut. In the past, the nut was generally milled out of round material. The same round rod used to make a hexagonal nut is better than a square nut. Hexagon nuts made from round bars of the same thickness are much larger than square nuts.
