When a bolt or a nut needs to be welded onto a metal part, a process known as stud welding is used. Stud welders will use stud welding equipment such as a stud weld gun to complete the process.
There are different types of stud welding equipment. Some applications use arc welding, and some use capacitor-discharge welding. Still, others will use another type.
It is important to know what type of welding process will work best for your specific project. Knowing the type of welding to create is beneficial for the success of your project. When deciding on stud welding consider the type of project, how often you will need the welder and the accessories required for the job.
Stud welding is an arc welding process. The stud is placed against a metal base using a piece of stud welding equipment called a weld gun. The weld gun will control the current and force the stud or bolt to melt in place until it re-solidifies.
In order to use the stud weld gun, welders will also need a power supply, controller, and cables. Sometimes the power supply and controller are bundled together.
In many industries, stud welding is the most reasonable fastening method for components, and when using thin plates, it is the only way to fasten.
Stud welding is the preferred method in many industries. It saves on labor costs and materials because the weld is fast and each weld is the uniform because it is controlled by the weld gun. A single welder can perform many welds in one minute by using stud welding equipment.
Stud welding creates strong joins. The strength of the joint is important when welding. Using stud welding equipment guarantees the welds are strong.
Stud welding can be used on a variety of metals including aluminum, copper, brass, stainless steel, and zinc. All of these metals will create a strong weld connection.
