Serving Precision Metal Fabricators Since 1970
Weld nut designs are based on size, shape, thickness, and configuration. These industrial fasteners are welded onto another metal piece and can bridge gaps or seams. A weld nut is able to be used in restricted or limited space areas. The hex weld nut design is ideal for heavy duty applications whereas a tab nut is typically used for lighter jobs. A right-angle weld nut attaches to the parent material and creates a threaded hole vertical to base material.
Weld Nut Types
A weld nut is a highly specialized type of fastener nut that is designed to be welded to another object. Furthermore, weld nuts are made with a greater amount of material than other nuts, so their form is maintained after being welded to another object. There are numerous weld nut options to suit a wide range of applications. The different types of weld nuts, include:

JHP Fasteners, the Leader of Weld Nut Suppliers
Weld nuts from JHP Fasteners are available in many configurations including hex, round, slab, and tab base weld nuts. The hex weld nut design is ideal for heavy-duty applications whereas a tab nut is typically used for lighter jobs. A right angle weld nut attaches to the parent material and creates a threaded hole vertical to base material. Metal weld nuts have a critical design in that accurate pressure and current must be used during the welding process to secure optimal performance in aftermarket use.
Typical welding nuts are manufactured in a low carbon steel with a plain finish. However, other materials, such as stainless, are available depending on the parent material in the application. Weld nuts are available with either inch or metric threads. JHP Fasteners distributes American, European, and American metric fasteners.
