Bolt Insertion Machine
How Does a Bolt Insertion Machine Work?
A bolt insertion machine is a tool used to fasten bolts or nuts into different materials such as metal, plastic, wood, and concrete. The operation may vary depending on the type of bolt insertion machine, but generally, the fastening process works as follows:
- 1 The appropriate bolt or nut for the project is selected and loaded into the bolt insertion machine.
- 2 The desired point on the material where the bolt or nut is to be fastened is identified, and the insertion machine is positioned at that location.
- 3 The trigger of the bolt insertion machine is activated, which generates a release of energy that propels the bolt or nut into the material at high speed.
- 4 Upon contact with the material, the bolt or nut is securely fastened, and a thread is formed in the hole that has been drilled in the material.
- 5 The tool then retracts the mandrel or insertion bolt, leaving the bolt or nut permanently fixed in the material.
It is worth noting that there are different types of bolt insertion machines, such as pneumatic, hydraulic, and electric ones, which vary in how they generate the necessary energy to fasten the bolt or nut. Additionally, there are different types of bolts and nuts that can be fastened using a bolt insertion machine, such as anchor bolts, self-tapping bolts, high-strength bolts, among others. Therefore, it is important to choose the appropriate type of bolt insertion machine and the right bolt or nut for the specific project being undertaken.
Why Do We Work with Pneumatic or Electric Bolt Insertion Machines?
At Teklan, we work with pneumatic or electric bolt insertion machines when working with metal because these tools offer high force and work capacity to fasten bolts or nuts onto metal quickly and effectively.
Working with metal may involve a large number of fastenings, which can be tedious and time-consuming. Pneumatic or electric bolt insertion machines are specifically designed to tackle these challenges. These tools provide a significant amount of torque and fastening speed, allowing them to secure bolts or nuts onto metal with ease and speed.
We work with pneumatic or electric bolt insertion machines when working with metal because these tools offer high force and work capacity to fasten bolts or nuts onto metal quickly, effectively, and efficiently. These tools are particularly useful for projects that require a large number of fastenings or require high precision and control in fastening bolts or nuts onto metal.
