To install a Cold Forming Anchor, a hole should be drilled in the fixture. The hole should be slightly larger than the diameter of the anchor. The anchor should then be inserted through the hole, clipped end first, and hammered into the concrete. It is important to ensure the anchor is embedded as deeply as possible, with its threads two to three inches below the surface of the concrete. This allows room for the nut and washer.
When installing a Cold Forming Anchor, make sure that the installation hole is clean and free of debris. You can use a wire brush or compressed air to clean the hole before attempting to install the anchor. Be sure to use the correct size nuts that come with the anchor. It is also important to install the nut so that the top of the anchor body is flush with the top of the nut. This will help protect the threads from damage.
Cold Forming Anchors can be hot-formed or cold-rolled. Hot-rolled Anchor Channels have thicker walls and massive channel lips than cold-formed Anchors. They offer superior sturdiness and are the industry standard. Additionally, their thicker walls and massive channel lips help them withstand the force that they are subjected to during installation.
The manufacturing process for an anchor bolt follows ISO 898-1 standards. The first step involves cutting round bar to the desired length. Then, the fastener is dipped into a zinc bath to protect it against damage caused by handling and bending. After that, it is threaded with a rotating diehead. This process requires a lot of energy and requires a high temperature.
