A weld nut, also known as a Slab Base Spot Weld T-Nut. These fasteners are commonly used in channel areas, where the rectangular flange can easily fit without overhanging the edge of the base material.
The flange, even though slim, can give added strength to the base material, providing a double layer of support when welded to the base. This means that the torque applied to the threaded portion is spread over a larger area (the flange), and some of the torque is also absorbed by the flange, resulting in less distortion of the base material. This helps to eliminate twisting and separation of the threaded fastener from the base material as torque is applied through normal applications.
