Unlike general stud welding, CD stud welding does not require flux. One end of the fastener must be specifically designed for CD welding to enable the use of this technique, which allows us to manufacture CD studs in almost any shape.
First, the fastener is inserted in to the welding gun and placed on the appropriate spot of the workpiece. CD weld studs have a tip that helps create a precise and consistent weld. Next, the weld gun is activated, thereby discharging energy through the fastener to melt the entire base of the fastener and a portion of the workpiece. Now, a spring forces the fastener into the molten metal. Finally, both pieces are kept still as the molten metal solidifies to create a tight, quality fusion weld.
CD stud welding is amazing for so many reasons. One reason would be speed: CD stud welding is completed in less than a second, generally between 1 to 6 milliseconds. Because the weld time is so short, the weld bonds with little oxidation, meaning welds can be made without significant distortion, burn-through, or reverse side discoloration. Finally, CD stud welding is great for the smaller welding jobs that require accuracy; CD stud welding s usually used for smaller diameter studs and pins for precision.
