Stud Welding Machine

A stud welding machine is a machine used to glue studs or fasteners to a base without drilling. Stud welding is the process of joining a round shaped stud to a flat piece of metal.The process of welding by applying pressure to it is called stud welding and stud welding machine is used for this process. There are two primary types of stud welding processes – capacitor discharge stud welding and drawn arc stud welding. The choice of process depends on the base metal thickness, stud diameter, quality and requirement of the weld. The CD stud welding method is used to join small-diameter studs to thin base metal, and draw arc welding is suitable for welding large-diameter studs to heavy parent metal. Our application engineering and stud welder team do the welding work with precision.

What is Stud Welding ?

STUD Welding is the process of joining a round shaped stud to a flat piece of metal by applying a welding arc and pressing it hard is called stud welding. It is a fast, simple and accurate welding process that joins two similar or dissimilar metals without any consumables. It involves an electric arc process that rapidly bonds the fastener to the base metal or substrate. Fasteners can be of many types: threaded, unthreaded, tapped, etc. Both the fastener and the substrate can be of various materials: steel, stainless steel, aluminum, etc. Fasteners are threaded, untreated, taped and of different sizes as per customer demand. The process of joining the two surfaces is made possible by heat and high pressure.

Stud welding is less expensive than other fastening methods and can be used in places that do not allow the use of other fasteners. Weld studs can be done by one man, on one side of the work piece, in less than a second. The base metal and the welded stud fastener need not be the same material. For example these combinations can be welded together - brass to copper, brass to steel, copper to steel and similar combinations are used.

A weld stud can be instantly joined to a metal work piece for a high quality, high strength permanent bond. Using weld studs, operators are able to produce high strength welds automatically or manually. As a result, many stud welding applications have become available. Using stud welding to attach weld studs is considered a faster and more efficient process for attaching fasteners. You can use a range of stud welding processes to achieve strong joints on a variety of metals, making it a great welding system for many industrial applications.

How Stud Welding Works ?

In the stud welding process an arc is ignited between the face of the stud and the surface of the work piece. After both parts are melted, the stud is smoothly pressed against the work piece and joined together. A welding stud with a hand tool called a stud gun is placed in contact with the base metal, a weld arc is drawn which melts the area of the welding stud base and the metal work piece for metal fastening. The welding stud is then forced into the molten area and held in place until the metal solidifies again. Welding components such as threaded studs, pins, tapped pads etc. are arc welded without the need for additional materials. This high quality fusion arc weld is completed in milliseconds. Since the stud is joined with the work piece over the entire surface of the stud, the strength of the joint is greater than that of the base material or the stud itself.

Stud welding is used for round and rectangular cross-sections. In addition to stud welding, which is widely used and standardized in DIN EN ISO 13918, a large number of welding components can be found in various metal-processing industries according to customer-specific or factory standards. An important factor that distinguishes stud welding from other fastening methods is that the fastener is attached to the workpiece without welding the other side. It features an arc stud welding method that provides highly reliable fastening for a wide variety of applications. This method allows almost any size or configuration of metal studs to be quickly welded to the workpiece while providing maximum weld penetration and reliability.

Equipments used in stud welding

Before knowing what materials you can use for stud welding, it is also important to know how the thickness of the base material and the diameter of the stud affect it and what materials and systems are best suited for it. In addition, the weld studs that Taylor Studwelding manufactures are available in a variety of materials such as mild steel, stainless steel, aluminum and brass, which also affect considerations when choosing the right stud welding system. Below are the tools required for stud welding.

  • Direct current power supply
  • Stud welding gun
  • Cables to bind system components and base metal together
  • Weld Stud
  • A controller

Types of Stud Welding

Stud welding is the most preferred welding method as it is cheap and time saving. The stud welding method used depends on the type of stud fastener required, depending on the application and the base metal being welded to the stud fastener. It doesn't require expensive stud welding equipment, uses less material, and you can complete a stud weld cycle in seconds. Stud welding is ideal for joining pieces of material together, as they create a strong and long-lasting bond. Industrial use of stud welding involves joining metal studs or plates together to form structural frameworks for buildings, bridges, etc.

There are two primary types of stud welding: drawn arc and capacitor discharge. In drawn arc stud welding, both the metal object and the fastener are heated using an electric arc. The fastener acts as an electrode so that it can melt and join the flat plate on the metal object. Draw arc stud welding requires very specific polarity. For aluminum, a direct-current electrode with positive polarity is used. For steel, a direct-current electrode of negative polarity is used. Regardless, all forms of drawn arc discharge stud welding require heating of both the fastener and the metal object. Stud welding is an advanced version of basic welding. In stud welding, a special nut or fastener is welded to the base metal to connect them. It is a comparatively less expensive method which is commonly used in the manufacture of structural steel products. Here are the types of stud welding that you can choose from.

1. Arc Stud Welding

Arc stud welding is a method that can be used to weld any size of stud as long as the stud is made of a weldable material. An operator weld tool or gun is used to hold the stud against the base metal. When triggered, an electric solenoid in the gun lifts the stud from the base metal to a preset height. The drawn arc melts the base of the stud and the base metal, creating a molten pool. The gun then lowers the stud into the molten pool and the molten material is held in place by a ceramic ferrule until a weld is formed. It mainly applies to aluminium, mild steel and stainless steel. This method is primarily used by fabricators of metal and structural steel products. Arc stud welding is the preferred method for welding large fasteners with thick bases.

In this process, a stud is placed in a stud welding gun. It rests firmly against the work surface and is held in place using spring tension. It is then covered by a ferrule, a ceramic shield that contains a large amount of heat and triggers molten metal from the weld. In the arc welding method, the stud fastener is held inside the weld gun. Then it is firmly applied to the work surface. Arch studs come in a variety of sizes. However, it is important that one end of the stud be designed to work with the arc welding equipment.

2. Capacitor Discharge Stud Welding

Capacitor discharge stud welding is a semi-automatic method. This method allows welding of dissimilar metals. Unlike arc stud welding, capacitor discharge stud welding is used to weld small studs to a thin base. The capacitor is charged to a predetermined setting on the power supply. When triggered, the stored energy is "discharged" and a burst of electricity creates a molten pool. The gun pushes the stud down into the molten pool. A CD stud has a special tip on the tip that is used during the weld. The capacitor discharge stud welding method is commonly used by sheet metal shops. This method cycle completes in milliseconds. This speed welds thin sheets without warping or distortion. Capacitor discharge stud welding eliminates drilling, tapping, punching, riveting, gluing and screwing; And the lack of reverse-side marring or distortion is especially beneficial when working with thinner gauge materials.

Capacitor discharge stud welding is a low cost, fast and flexible form of welding where light equipment is highly advantageous. Our lightweight yet robust CD product range offers the ideal solution for capacitor discharge stud welding needs across a range of industries.

In capacitor discharge stud welding method, specially designed fasteners are used. These fasteners have a specially designed length and tip that provides precision and control over welding time. The length of these fasteners remains unchanged even after the welding process.

Benefits of Stud Welding

Each type of welding has advantages, especially in relation to different projects. Stud welding is a type of welding that has many advantages as it is a high-speed process that is completed in milliseconds. It is frequently used for cookware, automotive, construction, marine, industrial and aerospace products. Simply put, a fastener is attached to a piece of metal during the stud welding process. While the stud is on the base metal, the weld arc melts part of the stud and the base metal. The stud is then placed in the molten metal until it hardens once more. It is similar to flash welding. There are many advantages to using stud welding that make this technique suitable for use in many industries and for a variety of purposes. Stud welding has many advantages over other joining processes bellow are some benefits
