The Stud Welding Difference

Stud welding is a complete one-step fastening system, using fasteners called weld studs. It is used across multiple industries to great effect, for a wide range of applications. Our customers work in aerospace, shipbuilding, offshore drilling, insulation, construction, and much more. Sunbelt Stud Welding is proud of our emphasis on customer education, and to that end, we present our latest blog post, an overview of the stud welding difference.

Benefits of Stud Welding

There are many benefits to stud welding! For one, nearly any metal can be adapted to stud welding, including brass, copper, stainless steel, aluminum, titanium, and more. Our customers want versatility, and stud welding definitely provides that.

In addition to versatility and the attractive appearance that stud welding leaves, it is much more accurate than other methods; these systems have a duty cycle of up to 30 welds per minute and production/CNC systems can weld up to 30 studs per minute. Plus, the stud welder controls and monitors the amount of energy used to weld the fastener, which in turn produces consistently strong welds.

Durable and Strong

While stud welding is resilient and hardy, the recommendation for stud welding is that it not be done when the base temperature of the area is below zero degrees or when the surface is exposed to rain, snow, or is wet.
