Connector nuts with viewing port

Wednesday 13th June 2018

Trojan just manufactured 4 different sizes of these extra long connector nuts. In addition to having a full thread running the length of these fasteners, we were also tasked to drill a through hole on one face - believed to be an inspection port because they didn't ask for this to be tapped. The fasteners you see here have an M30 thread and are 75 millimeters long with double chamfers.

Special Zinced Spacers

Tuesday 12th June 2018

Check out these beautifully machined spacers. Well, you might ask, why would someone need a spacer? In this instance, they are going to be used to create a space (get it?) between two fixed metal zinced plates, with an M12 bolt that goes through the plate, the spacer, the next plate and is then fastened by one of our M12 All metal prevailing torque locking nuts. Each plate assembly requires four of these spacers for the four bolts that hold the plate apart the required distance for the other moving parts that attach to said plate. We can manufacture spacers from single to multiple thousand quantities, all bright bar turned and in whatever feasible plating or coating we can get from our…

Slotting These Babies

Friday 1st June 2018

Our customer provided us with some lengths of brass all threaded bar - all we had to do was put a slot on one side so that they become little brass grub screws! We can slot, tap, reduce, resize and turn your free issue items.

M16x1.5 special nuts to drawing

Friday 1st June 2018

Fasteners such as these present their own manufacturing problems - such a small wall coupled with a short height mean that we had to manufacture some special tooling in order to just thread them. They're precision machined to perfection and do the job as intended... just hope the customer doesn't over torque them!

M33 Special Square nut with Spigot

Thursday 16th November 2017

What an interesting nut! Our customer wanted a fastener with a turned down spigot on one end and un chamfered square portion. In typical Trojan fashion, we machined the fasteners in record time and they're now awaiting collection. These were turned from a 50mm square steel bar.

Brass Threaded Spacers

Monday 30th October 2017

Our customer provided us with an imported sample nut and asked if we could get close to the product they wanted. The finish on their product was absolutely terrible - and the thread wasn't even centred - to the point where we asked our customer if they wanted an off-centre thread. Thankfully for us, they simply wanted bar turned round threaded spacers - we'd call them round nuts, but everyone has their own name for the wierd and wonderful. Our customer took their first batch only this morning and already they are looking to place an order for more of these!

Pipe Nuts

Monday 30th October 2017

These look strange don't they? Nuts with such a large inner diameter to hexagon across flat - strange, but necessary for our customers who look for fasteners with a BSP or British Standard Pipe Thread form.

12 slotted Nuts

Monday 30th October 2017

12 yes TWELVE slots on a nut so small... Yes, we machined them with accuracy, ease and speed. These type of slotted nuts tend to go on parts where a degree of fine rotation is needed in order to line up the slots with the pin to retain it. We made a new tooling rig just for this job - and so far they have been reordered a number of times already. Suffice it to say, our customer is very happy!
