Stud Welding

Stud welding is the welding of elements such as threaded studs, pins and tapped pads by an arc without additional material.

There are two main processes utilised with stud welding:

• Capacitor Discharge Stud Welding – Especially suited for welding on thin plates from about 0.5 mm with applications including sheet metalwork, electronic industries, switchboard cabinets, laboratory and medical equipment, food industry, household appliances, communications engineering, vending machines, windows, glass constructions, insulation technology, and industrial kitchens.

• Drawn Arc Stud Welding – Especially suited for welding on thicker plates of 2mm and above with applications including steel construction, mechanical engineering, shipbuilding, structural and civil engineering, power plants and combustion systems, boiler and plant equipment, insulation and window construction
