What is Stud Welding?

A complete one-step fastening system, stud welding is a process that uses weld studs. They come in a wide variety of designs, including threaded and unthreaded, and many sizes and shapes. The equipment needed for most stud welding processes is fairly minimal, including a weld gun, a controller, a direct current power supply, and cables to tie the components and base metal together.

Stud welding is much less expensive than other fastening methods, and can be used in locations that do not allow the use of other fasteners. Stud welds have an attractive, uniform appearance, and with the accuracy provided by the fastener, you can rest assured that the welds will also be consistently strong. Plus, almost any type of metal can be adapted to stud welding, including stainless steel, copper, brass, Inconel, and aluminum.

Wide Variety of Industries

Numerous industries utilize stud welding to their advantage, including shipbuilding industries, electronics, aerospace, offshore, petrochemical, transportation, utilities metalworking, insulation installation, construction, and many more.
