What is stud welding?

Stud welding is a powerful and reliable welding process for applying a single side fastener to a metal component, including stainless steel, mild steel, aluminium, aluminium alloy, and brass studs and components. A stud welder can work with a range of fasteners, including weld studs, pins, nails, and earth tags.

There are three main stud welding processes used in a range of manufacturing applications: capacitor discharge (CD), drawn arc (DA), and short cycle (SC). Each process is suited to particular materials and provides various capabilities, but all of these processes produce impressively strong and lasting results. A stud welding system can be used for a diverse range of industries, from electrical and mechanical to decorative and consumer.
