Studwelding Methods

Stud welding has become the standard in many fastening applications in industrial and commercial buildings, bridges, power generating structures, military vehicles, automobiles, trucks and offroad equipment. Stud welding literally anchors other components to the basic framework of structures without piercing the basic framework and provides superior strength to traditional welding methods.

There are three different types of stud welding methods in everyday use:

Drawn Arc (DA)

The process “Drawn-Arc stud welding” is used for welding studs in the engineering industry.

It produces a full cross-sectional weld, forming a bond that is stronger than the surrounding metal.

Capacitor Discharge (CD)

Capacitor Discharge (CD) stud welding is an extremely efficient method of welding fasteners to a wide variety of metals like mild steel, stainless steel, aluminum, brass, copper, titanium, etc.

Short Cycle (SC)

Short cycle welding is anreduced version of the drawn arc stud welding process and is used for welding studs in the automotive industry Ø 5mm up to Ø11mm (earth studs) onto thin base material of 0.8mm.
