WHAT IS STUD WELDING
Stud Welding is a one-step metal fastening process in which a metal fastener is applied by a welding arc to another piece of metal for a high-quality, high-strength permanent bond. There are many fasteners that can be stud welded included threaded studs, unthreaded studs, tapped studs, weld pins and more. Stud welding works for all types of metals including mild steel, stainless steel, aluminum, titanium, zinc, copper, brass and many alloys. The equipment required for stud welding is made up of a power supply, a stud gun, ground and weld cables.
WHAT IS THE STUD WELDING PROCESS?
The weld stud or weld pin is placed in the stud gun.
The stud gun trigger is pressed and a weld arc is drawn that melts the welding stud base and the a proportionate area of the base metal.
The weld stud is then forced into the melted area and held in place until the metals harden. The weld process is completed in less than one second.
