Electro-Galvanized Box Nail

Box Nail / Electro-Galvanized Nail / Flat Head Box Nail

The electro-galvanized box nail features a flat head and a smooth shank with a diamond point. This type is widely used to construct crates and boxes, as well as light construction and carpentry work. A thinner shank reduces splitting, particularly in Douglas fir and Pine wood. For more information, please see the chart below.

Production Process
1. Wire is drawn from a coil and fed into the nail making machine. The subsequent deformed wire will form the head and point, then the nail is cut free from the rest of the wire fed from the roll. Nails with helical twists, serrations, or other surface configurations will be sent into another machine to be rolled, twisted, stamped, or cut into the required form.
2. The nails are then cleaned in a rotating barrel filled with hot caustic soda. This removes any oil from the forming machine and cleans away any small metal scraps that may cling to the nails. Finally, the nails are given a final bright finish before packaging.
3. Magnetic elevators convey the finished nails to the weighing machines, where they will then be drop ped into open cardboard boxes. As the common nails are drop ped in, a magnetic field aligns them so they stack in neat rows.
