How stud welding works
Stud welding is a process which joins fastener elements like threaded studs, pins or nuts to metal surface components such as a wear plate liner. Both parts between the face of the stud and the surface of the component are melted, creating an arc, and the stud is then pressed against the component, into the weld pool and join ed. No additional material for the weld is required, and because the stud and the component are joined over the whole surface of the stud, the strength is far superior at the join itself.
Advantages of stud welding
There are many advantages of stud welding over conventional welding, including:
- Much more time efficient
- Greater design flexibility
- Less down time
- Higher quality product
- Lower labour costs
- Lower material costs
Possibly the biggest advantage of stud welding over other types of welding is the time it saves. Stud welding allows for much faster weld rates (three per minute) thanks to no drilling, screwing, punching or threading. Less time equals less money, and when the finished result is a superior product, it’s a win-win for all.
The quality of a stud weld also far outweighs the quality of conventional welding methods. Stud welding is welded from the inside out at the core of the fixture, whereas other methods weld purely externally using joining materials. The result is full penetration and a stronger, more accurate join.
Stud welding equipment
ATA Steel also ensures accuracy while stud welding, thanks to stud positioning by CNC plasma that marks the plates during the cutting process. Problems relating to studs being welded on the wrong side or incorrect positioning are minimised, resulting in fewer issues down the track or on site.
