Arc Stud Overview

Arc studs are made from mild steel, stainless steel and aluminum. They are formed into many different shapes to facilitate different industry needs. Generally, arc welding is used to secure larger diameter studs (1/4” to 3/4”) to thicker metal surfaces. They are popular throughout automotive, appliance and other general manufacturing applications in addition to some construction applications. For more information call 440-327-3200.

Arc Stud Welding Process

How To Arc Weld

Step 1: After a ferrule and stud have been loaded in to the gun, the weldable end of the fastener is placed against the work surface.

What is Arc Welding

Step 2: After puilling the trigger on the stud welding gun, an electrical arc is drawn which melts both the end of the fastener and the metal surface it is being welded to.

Arc Weld Process

Step 3: If a ceramic ferrule is utilized, it will contain the molten metal inside to ensure a strong weld.

Step 4: The molten metal cools immediately to form a stong bond. After the weld is complete, the ceramic ferrule is broken and removed with a light tap from a hammer or other tool.
