Small scale industries order it directly from the manufacturers and sometimes from wholesale shops in order to fulfill their requirement. Sometimes heavy equipment like cranes, oilfield supplies, and power project equipment has to be ordered directly from the large scale industrial plants considering the sophistication and size of the equipment. Certain industries like the automobile industry and heavy equipment industry procure small hardware parts from various sources. These parts are then assembled in their plant based on their vehicular and instrument designs. Some of the most common hardware products are pipe and pipes fittings, welding equipment and consumables, power tools, screws, nuts, stud bolts, anchor bolts, dowel bars, measuring equipment etc. In the modern day, tools that are embedded with technology such as calculators and computers are used.
