About Arc Stud Welding

In drawn arc stud welding an arc is drawn between a stud and a workpiece, melting some of the metal on both parts.  At the end of the welding time the stud is plunged into the weld pool, the welding current is switched off and the weld pool solidifies.  It is especially suited for welding on thicker plates of 2mm and above.


Ideal applications for Arc Stud Welding include steel construction, mechanical engineering, shipbuilding, structural and civil engineering, power plants and combustion systems, boiler and plant equipment, insulation and window construction.


Drawn arc stud welding can be performed with a number of variations including drawn arc stud welding with ceramic ferrule or shielding gas, short cycle drawn arc stud welding and capacitor discharge drawn arc welding.  Selecting the right process is based upon the following variables:


  • Sheet thickness
  • Stud diameter for welding from different positions
  • Surface conditions
  • Application


To determine the right process for your job, please download the product brochure.
