Amaan Enterprises deals with all types of Nuts. Nuts are a fastener with an internally threaded hole. They are almost exclusively used to mate with a bolt that has the correct threading pattern. Nuts and bolts work together to hold materials together by creating a temporary joint. Although the idea seems simple, nuts can be a complex product as they are offered in a variety of shapes and sizes for a wide range of purposes.Most nuts are installed with a wrench, socket or driver, but certain types, such as knurled and wing nuts, are installed by hand. In environments subject to vibrations, lock nuts can add extra tension to an assembly to prevent accidental back off. For the most part, standard hex nuts work well with many household applications.
Cap nuts or Acorn nuts are a type of fastener whose name comes from its shape. It is a hex nut that has a closed end, domed top to prevent contact with the external thread. Acorn nuts are easily removed for maintenance to be performed, they also provide an aesthetically pleasing finished look. Acorn Nuts are available in 304/18-8 Stainless Steel, 316 Stainless Steel, Brass and Nickel Plated finishes.
Castle nuts are used in conjunction with a cotter pin to prevent loosening. This nut has slots (notches) cut into one end. The name comes from the nut’s resemblance to the crenellated parapet of a medieval castle. The bolt or axle has one or two holes drilled through its threaded end. The nut is torqued properly and then, if the slot isn't aligned with the hole in the fastener, the nut is rotated to the nearest slot. The nut is then secured with a cotter pin or safety wire. Castellated nuts are used in low-torque applications, such as holding a wheel bearing in place.
Coupling nuts are threaded fasteners used to join two male threads, most commonly threaded rod. The outside of a coupling nut is typically a hex so it can be driven with a wrench. Coupling nuts are also used to make up long rod assemblies from shorter lengths of rods. Coupling nuts are also available in reducer versions, which can be used to connect two different sizes of threaded rod or fasteners. Available in coarse and fine thread. Coupling nut dimensions are described by the industrial fastener institute in standard IFI-128. Amaan Enterprises offers coupling nuts in stainless steel, hot dipped galvanized steel, and zinc plated steel finishes.
A Hex Flange Nut is a nut that has a wide flange at one end that acts as an integrated, non-spinning washer. This serves to distribute the pressure of the nut over the part being secured, reducing the chance of damage to the part and making it less likely to loosen as a result of an uneven fastening surface. Serrated flange nuts create a locking action, allowing a serrated flange nut to be substituted for a lock nut. Flange nuts are available in Stainless Steel and Zinc Plated Steel for corrosion resistance.
Hex nuts are used for many fastening applications. These nuts are often used with screws and bolts when mechanically joining materials together. If the size of the screw that you are using is smaller than 1/4-20 (ex 8-32 or 10-24) you should be using and searching for hex machine screw nuts. Hex nuts start at size 1/4-20 and go all the way up to 1-1/4", they are available in fine thread and coarse thread. Hex finish nuts are available in Stainless Steel, Zinc, Hdg, Yellow Etc.
Square nuts can be used in a channel or welded to other steel products. A square nut is a four-sided nut. Compared to standard hex nuts, square nuts have a greater surface in contact with the part being fastened, and therefore provide greater resistance to loosening (though also greater resistance to tightening). They are also much less likely to become rounded-off after repeated loosening/tightening cycles. Square nuts are typically mated with square-headed bolts. Square nuts are used along with flat washers in order to avoid damage from its sharp edges and helps to increase the strength of the fastener.
A nylon insert lock nut is hex shaped, internally threaded with a nylon insert. The nylon material prevents loosening from vibration and cross threads to stop the nut from backing off of the fastener. The insert deforms elastically over the threads of the screw, but threads are not cut into the nylon. The nylon insert locks the nut in two ways. First, it forces the bottom face of the screw threads against the top face of the nut threads, increasing the friction between the two. Second, the nylon applies a compressive force against the screw itself. They come in a variety of materials.
A Keps k nut lock nut is a nut with an attached, free-spinning washer. It is used to make assembly more convenient. K Lock Nuts Feature a conical external tooth washer attached to the bottom of the nut. Keps K Lock Nuts are available in 304 Stainless Steel and Zinc Plated Steel.
A machine nut is used with a machine screws to mechanically connect materials together. This type of nut is used with smaller machine screw sizes under 1/4". Hex Machine nuts are used for many fastening applications. Machine screw nuts are often used with hex cap screws, socket screws and bolts. Hex machine nuts are available in Stainless Steel, Zinc, Hdg, Yellow Etc.
Metric nuts are available in quality grade A2 Stainless Steel. Metric A2 Stainless Steel is corrosion resistant and rust resistant. Metric nuts are measured in millimeters(ex: M5 x1.0). They are used to match their metric bolt or screw equivilent. Metric nuts in stock and ready to ship: Hex Cap Nuts, Hex Finish nuts, Hex Flange Nuts, Hex Jam Nuts, Keps K Lock Nuts, Nylon Lock Nuts, and Wing Nuts.
Wing Nuts are designed for projects that require no tools. Use only your fingers to install or remove the nut. Wing Nuts feature two wings which allow for the fastener to be tightened or loosened by hand. Wing Nuts are commonly seen on assemblies that require adjustment or are not permanent. They are also used when convenience is a driving factor. They are commonly used on Drum Sets, Bicycles and Lighting Equipment.
T nuts, commonly called tee nuts and blind nuts, are used in wood, composite, particle or other soft materials. Made from an internal threaded barrel and flange, t nuts have small prongs (usually 3 or 4) that dig into the soft installation surface. They can sometimes be serrated to provide a better grip. The prongs of a tee nut act as hooks to hold the nut to the surface leaving a flush face on the nut side, as long as the bolt is the right length.
