People familiar with the nut know that there are many kinds of nuts, such as square nuts, round nuts, ring nuts, butterfly nuts, hexagon nuts, and so on. Then the most common in the market is the hexagon nut, then why hexagon nuts most commonly used? See what netizens say.

Hexagon Nuts, is the working people in the production and life of continuous practice of crystallization.

1. The nut is made into hexagonal shape in order to use conveniently. In the machine, the installation of nut parts, sometimes not enough, and screw nut wrench space is also very small. Hexagon nuts, only need to flip the wrench 60 degrees, you can slowly tighten the nut, and the four corners nuts need to flip 90 degrees each time. In other words, in order to tighten the nut need to stay out of the place, hexagonal smaller, but the octagonal nut because of the wrench and its contact surface is small, it is easy to slip, usually rarely used, so hexagon nuts to use the most convenient. Then look at the wrench, the handle of the common wrench and the opening can be 30 degrees of angle, so when the installation of the nut is very narrow, the wrench can not be free to move, and hexagon nuts, as long as the wrench to flip a nut, and then turn the wrench over again to pull a nut, so back and forth repeatedly to pull a few times, you can tighten the nut.

2. The nut is made into hexagonal shape in order to make maximum use of the material. Because from the strength, the big nut is stronger than the small, and the past nut is generally made of circular milling, the same a round bar, with it to do hex nuts than the use of four corners of the nut material utilization, and with the same thickness of the hexagonal nut, far more than the four corners nuts.

To sum up, hexagon nuts are more convenient to use, but also more able to increase the use of materials, therefore, the most common in the market.

Our company specializes in producing/Custom Nut Blanks。 One of the 1-type six-nut application is the most widely used, C-class nuts for the surface is relatively rough, the accuracy requirements of the machine, equipment or structure, A and B-grade nuts for the surface is relatively smooth, high precision requirements of the machine, equipment or structure. The thickness of type 2 hexagon nuts is thicker, which is often used for mounting and dismantling occasions. The thickness of the hexagon thin nut is thinner, which is used in the case where the surface space of the connecting parts is restricted.
