    ARC Threaded weld studs have a variety of applications from securing metal grating to anchoring crane rails.

    ARC stud welding involves the same basic principles and metallurgical aspects as any other arc welding procedure. The weld gun lifts the stud a short distance from the base metal and initiates a controlled electric arc from the power source. This melts the end of the stud and a portion of the base metal. The gun then thrusts the stud into the molten metal. A high quality fusion weld is accomplished where the weld is stronger than the stud itself.

    CD stud welding is compatible which just about any weldable material, and permits the welding of dissimilar metals.

    Capacitor discharge welding (CD) involves the same basic principles and metallurgical aspects as any other arc welding procedure. When the weld gun is activated, a special precision weld tip initiates a controlled electric arc from the welder capacitor bank which melts the end of the stud and a portion of the base metal. The stud is held in place as the molten metal solidifies, instantly accomplishing a high quality fusion weld where the weld is stronger than the stud itself.
