Baseline Bolt has certified welders in-house to perform welding and light fabrication of custom fasteners as well as anchor bolt assemblies.
Chamfering and Pointing
A lot of bolts demand a chamfering operation to ensure easy installation of nuts. The bolts that are used for wood applications most often need a semi-cone point so as to facilitate easy installation of the fastener via the wood members. A cone point is required by lag bolts to screw into wood. Highly specialized equipment is used to perform these operations quickly and consistently.
As per ASTM specifications, most of the high strength rods & anchor bolts demand permanent grade identification; also, the registered logo of the manufacturer must be stamped on one end. At Baseline Bolt, we make use of hydraulic stamping equipment to identify high strength products on a permanent basis.
Swedging involves placing indentations in the anchor bolt’s unthreaded end which will further be embedded in concrete. At BBI, we use exclusive hydraulic swedging equipment in order to produce these components. Varied engineering firms & State Transportation Departments have specific requirements with regards to the size, placement and depth of the indentations. We, at Baseline bolt, can fulfill any special swedging needs.
