Nut welding with Tucker® Nutfast® — a reliable basis for all your connections. Welding Tucker nuts to sheet metal makes a fast, cost-effective, and highly resistant connection.

Fast facts:

  • Large scale and force-fit connections with the base plate, hence high resilience (strength classes 8 and 10)
  • Access only needed to one side of workpiece
  • Maximum pressing force when welding (< 300="" n="" />)
  • Very high availability even using flexible robotised mass production
  • Automatic application, low handling costs, up to 30 Tucker Nuts / minute
  • Low energy consumption in comparison with resistance nuts
  • Seamless service right from the start - from nut design to a complete production facility.

More about Tucker® nuts:

The special geometry of Tucker Nuts and a large outer diameter create a highly secure positive bond to the base plate. The Tucker Nut is cold-forged, resulting in its very high internal strength. M5 to M10.

  • Fully automated feed
  • Rounded head to prevent possible damage to cables routed immediately adjacent
  • Can be used as threaded inserts without drilling the base plate
  • For fastening all mounted parts
  • High flexural rigidity

More about Nutfast welding equipment:

Nutfast equipment is customised for your specific application. Robotised, static or manual, exactly according to your requirements. This process guarantees splatter-free threads.
