Stud Welding is used to affix studs or fasteners on a base without making any holes. There are two primary types of stud welding process – Capacitor Discharge Stud Welding and Drawn Arc Stud Welding. The selection of the process depends on thickness of the base metal, diameter of the stud, quality and appearance requirement of the weld. The CD Stud Welding method is used to join small-diameter studs to thin base metals and Drawn Arc Welding is suitable to weld larger diameter studs on heavy parent metal. Our application engineering & stud welder team does the welding job with precision.

Capacitor Discharge Stud Welding

Artech offers CD Stud Welding machines that are suitable to join small diameter studs to thin base metals.

  • Stud diameter < 8 mm

What are the Dos and Don’ts for Projection Welding?

Projection Welding is a widely used type of resistance welding. In this type of welding, multiple projections can be welded on the workpiece. These projections can be circular, round dimples, extended corners, rib type, or elongated ridges of weld nuts. The advantages of projection welding include better uniformity and appearance of the weld. Multiple projection […]
