Stud welding is a process by which a metal fastener is joined to a metal workpiece by melting both parts with an arc. As the whole surface of the weld stud is joined with the workpiece, the resulting weld joint is stronger than the stud or base material.
Since no holes are punched in the sheet, the workpiece is not weakened and corrosion problems are minimized.
A key factor that differentiates stud welding from other fastening processes is that the fastener is attached to the workpiece without marring the other side and all of that in less than a second.
Manufacturing companies today face the dilemma of increasing productivity while maintaining high product quality. For fastening metal parts, stud welding answers both sides of this dilemma.
