Stud Welding provides 3 primary advantages:

  • Tremendous time and cost savings through elimination of drilling, punching, threading, gluing, riveting, screwing or finishing.

  • Greater flexibility in design and usage as Studwelding may be applied on very thin plates and on platforms with limited or only one sided access.

  • Unsurpassed economy through high levels of automation, fast weld rates and low price for standard studs.


During the stud welding process, an arc is ignited between the face of the stud and the surface of the work piece. Once both surfaces melt, the stud is smoothly pressed against the work piece and joined together. Welding elements like threaded studs, pins and tapped pads are welded by an arc without any additional material being required. As the stud is joined with the work piece over the whole surface of the stud, the strength of the joint is even higher than the base material or the stud.

The company uses two types of Stud Welding:

  • Capacitator Discharge (CD) Stud Welding

  • Arc Stud Welding



Fastening systems that are ideal for stud-welding fasteners for heating, ventilation and air-conditioning, signage and construction industries. The stud welding insulation pin is a capacitor discharge weld insulation fastener. Insulation welding pins work with a stud welding machine, weld the pins on the sheet metal, then put the insulation through the welding pins, press a self-locking washer onto the pin, bend over or clip off the pin to finish fastening insulation installation.
