How is an Anchor Bolt Head Formed?

An anchor Bolt head is not formed by welding a piece of steel to a rod. A headed bolt is made by heating one end of a steel rod and then forging the heated end into a hex, heavy hex, or square head. A common misconception is that a bolt head is made by adding a piece of steel to a rod. The forging process produces a superior fastener by forming the bolt from one piece of material.
