Across a wide range of industries there is a need for nuts to be assembled onto studs, bolts, and other items prior to shipment. Often the volume of these projects makes hand assembly unwieldy or impractical. When this is the case, a nut and bolt assembly machine can speed up the assembly process.

This guide lays out the standard features for two nut and bolt assembly solutions.
