Stud welding is an arc welding process in which a stud or similar metal part can be end-joined to a workpiece instantaneously. This stud welding process involves the same basic procedures and metallurgical aspects as any other arc welding procedure.
The process is as follows. The stud is placed (with a hand tool called the weld gun) against the base metal, through the control of the stud welding equipment and the design of the stud. An arc is drawn which melts the base of the stud and a proportionate area of the base metal. The stud is then forced into the molten pool and held in place until the materials re-solidify. This high quality fusion weld is completed in milliseconds.
Capacitor Discharge (CD) and ARC are the two methods for accomplishing this stud welding process. The difference between these two methods involves the power source used to provide the welding current. Also, the design and application sequence of the stud vary slightly.
