What is the threaded rod

Threaded rods are available in many types, lengths, and materials, and are one of the most versatile products that can be used for connecting materials. They are usually used to connect wooden and metal objects, but can also be inserted into wood or concrete to increase stability. They can also be used in plumbing applications.

How to cut threaded rods to length.

Threaded rods are usually supplied in lengths of one meter, and some are also available in stock in two and three meters. If longer lengths are required, these can be customized.

An abrasive saw or a cold cutting saw can be used to cut the bar to a specific length. Cold cutting blades provide a significantly faster finish than abrasive blades because the latter leaves rough edges.

If an abrasive blade is used, the next step is to remove the rough edges left by the cutting rod. This is usually done using a grinding wheel to smooth the cutting end. Then any necessary beveling or chamfering cuts, which helps to connect the nut to the rod more easily.
