Swedged Anchor Rods

swedged-rodThese are alternatives to the bent anchor bolts, headed anchor bolts and rods with anchor plates. Common application areas for the swedged rods are in highway constructions with limited base space. In such constructions, the concrete forms around the grooves in the cylindrical bar to give extra anchoring strength.

Our machines can produce swedged anchor rods through to 3” diameter. For the case of companies or constructions of structures that for one reason or another demand for the use of different swegging patterns from what we have on stock, we can create an exact replica of your idea and design. All you have to do is give us a picture of the pattern and indentations then sit back and wait for us to make an exact replica as what you need.

 

Full thread Rods

all-thread-rod2Also called all thread rod, redi –rod, continuously threaded rods or simply ATR, they are pieces used in general fastening tools. They can be used on any fastening procedures on anything that has a bolt and a nut. They come in a variety of grades, materials and finishing including the strong and versatile stainless steel.

If you are looking for high strength fasteners however, you will not get away by simply replacing your thread rods for a headed bolt since there is a reasonable loss in strength. At our company, we will cut, thread and chamfer soak your thread rods just as you would like them, regardless of the design and size.

 

 

 

Tie rods

Tie-Rod

Mostly, tie rods are useful in the bracing of steel columns or heavy timber beams in constructions or to support canopies and awnings. Most often than not, these rods work hand in hand with clevises and turnbuckles. By the use of our tie rod calculator, we can easily come up with the specifications for the rods you need in your job from the overall pip to pin dimension of a tie rod system.

We pride ourselves in the capability to deliver a number of ties. Sag rods in different dimensions and ASTM specifications. We however have in stock two of the most common specifications:

a. A single rod with left handed threads on one side and right handed on the other side is the first model. To finish up the design is a clevis that is threaded into each end of the road before the whole rod is wound tight.

b. The second configuration is made of two rods with a turnbuckle at the center and clevises on each of ends. One of the rods has right handed threads while the other one takes the left hand threading. It is the turnbuckle at the center that is then rotated to tighten the whole assembly. It is important to point out the fact that in some instances, the tie rod can be connected using sleeve nuts or coupling nuts.
