The primary advantages of our stud welding process are:
- Saves Time: Seconds per stud weld compared to minutes for traditional arc weld processes
- "No Hole" Fastening: Eliminates the need for drill and tap with a Complete Joint Penetration (CJP) Weld where the full cross section of stud is utilized.
- Reliability & Repeat-ability: Because of process-monitoring capability, you get same weld every time
- No Certified Welder Needed: The process is easy to train on and can be performed by lowest cost labor
- Return on Investment: The process provides significant labor savings, is fast & efficient that leads to fast payback on your capital investment
Welding metal studs to sheets can be easy, efficient and automated. Stud & clip instead of hole & screw offers many advantages:
- “No hole” one-sided fastening (one-person job)
- Replaces other mechanical connections i.e. drilling & tapping, through-bolting/riveting, etc.
- Full fusion / full cross section of stud is utilized
- Backside finish is undisturbed (Application Specific)
- No leaking at the connection point
- Fast, repeatable process; substantial labor savings over other methods
- Operator does not have to be a certified welder
- The weld is stronger than the stud or base metal alone allowing engineers to design around the failure of the stud or base material
- Weld process monitoring capability for quality critical applications
- Auto-feed capability for high-volume applications
