The Use of Ceramic Ferrules in Drawn Arc Stud Welding

Stud welding is a widely used manufacturing operation for connecting various components, support structures, assemblies, and composite construction. While there are many applications for various types of stud welding, drawn arc stud welding in particular is used for heavy-duty construction using studs with dimensions typically larger than ¼”. Drawn arc welding studs also utilize a ceramic ferrule in the bonding process. This ferrule helps create a bond that is stronger than both the welding stud and the material being welded to. When you work with Northland Fastening Systems for all your drawn arc stud welding projects, you have access to all the high-quality studs, welding tools, and accessories you need.

 

Working with a ceramic ferrule to establish strong bonds using the drawn arc stud welding process requires specific tools and practices including a drawn arc gun and calibrated unit, drawn arc studs, ceramic ferrule sized correctly, and an adequate power source.

 

How it works: The ceramic ferrule works to surround and contain the welding stud during the weld. As the drawn arc current heats the tip of the stud and the metal becomes molten, the ring-shaped ferrule keeps the metal from spreading into a messy weld. The ceramic ferrule also protects the weld from exposure to oxygen in the air. Oxygen exposure can lead to porous or weakened welds. Additionally, the ferrule creates a protective barrier reducing UV exposure. Once the weld is complete, the ferrule is chipped away leaving a clean, perfectly formed weld.

 

Ceramic ferrules are required for drawn arc stud welding because the process is a longer weld time than other welds, the welding studs are typically thicker in diameter, and the weld will be required to hold greater weights than other welding formats.

 

Short cycle welding uses inert shielding gas instead of ceramic ferrules, and CD stud welding uses a different process entirely that doesn’t have the risk of molten metal spread. Instead, CD welding uses an exact combination of pressure and current frequency to heat the metal stud and bond it to the surface material.

 

If you’re working with drawn arc stud welding operations on your job site, Northland Fastening Systems can provide all the studs, accessories, and welding tools for rent or purchase you might need from the start of your project to the finish.

Determining Weld Strength for Drawn Arc Stud Welding

Many forms of welding have been used for centuries to build strong, long-lasting parts and countless buildings and other structures. Included in these forms of welding are the various types of stud welding, all of which provide one of the strongest connection points of any weld type. In fact, both capacitor discharge (CD) and drawn arc stud welding form a bond that is stronger than either the weld stud or the base material.

 

Because of the strength of these connections, stud welding is an operation that is key to many manufacturing industries. No matter what industry you work in, Northland Fastening Systems has the tools, supplies, and services you need for both drawn arc stud welding and CD stud welding.

 

We are committed to providing a comprehensive range of welding studs in multiple standard dimensions as well as custom made-to-order studs. In addition, we offer welding tools for rent and purchase and our own expert services.

 

When it comes to drawn arc stud welding in particular, determining the required stud specifications is critical for a strong, lasting weld that can hold the weight or other stresses it will bear. Typically, drawn arc stud weld points are used in heavier construction projects and require precise performance in the field. This performance depends on the strength of the weld point, which in turn depends on weld fusion and weld penetration.

 

Weld Fusion

Simply put, weld fusion is the point where the metal of the stud connects to the metal of the surface. This fusion is a chemical connection generated by the heat of the welding arc rendering both stud and surface metal and joining those points with an atomic bonding process. In order to have a strong, reliable weld point, the spread of the fusion must be as far up the stud, as deep into the surface, and wide enough in diameter to create the necessary connection.

 

Generating the correct level of fusion without using unneeded energy or compromising the stud requires a highly specific combination of time, power, and force. For the majority of drawn arc stud welding operations, these combinations are predetermined by industry engineers specializing in stud welding physics. These specifications can be applied to different welding projects within a varying range that gives the welder the information needed to apply the correct level of weld fusion and create a strong weld connection.

 

NFS welding technicians can help you determine the specifications you need to apply precise, high-quality drawn arc stud welding operations to your project.

Drawn Arc Stud Welding Highlights from Start to Finish

Drawn arc welding is a complex process made simple with today’s technology. Though welding has been around for centuries, beginning with the oldest forge welding to today’s capacitor discharge welding, it hadn’t begun development into the highly advanced process contemporary welders use until the late 1970s. Thanks to the advancement of welding techniques since then, we are able to utilize both drawn arc and capacitor discharge processes to perform stud welding operations. If you are working on a CD or drawn arc stud welding project, Northland Fastening Systems has everything you need from tools for rent and sale, studs of all shapes and sizes, stud welding accessories, and our own welding services.

 

When it comes to the traditional format of drawn arc stud welding, there are several stages of the procedure to take into consideration. First, the welding operation itself, which follows a simple step-by-step process:

 

  1. The welding gun is set onto the base material at the desired weld point and the operator compresses the main spring partially.
  2. The trigger is then compressed, and the stud is lifted magnetically from the base material to create an arc.
  3. The arc melts the stud tip and the base material while a ceramic ferrule shield concentrates the heat, containing it to one weld point.
  4. The stud is then compressed into the base material, melding the two molten metal components.
  5. The welding gun releases the stud, the ferrule is broken, and the welding process is complete.

 

A drawn arc stud welding process creates a bond that is stronger than the stud itself. As welding processes go, drawn arc welding is one of the most effective, fastest, and strongest operations for stud welding manufacturing. For even more effective, accurate drawn arc stud welding, templating is a highly useful procedure.

 

Templates improve the accuracy of a welding operation that uses a ceramic ferrule to contain the heat during the arc. Steel plates hold the ferrule in place, while spacers allow the gasses from the weld to escape through gaps underneath the template plates. Additional template options may allow tube templates with ventilation holes to hold the ferrule, or brushing templating can be applied.

 

Brushing templates allow for angled alignment of the stud in addition to an exact location. These templates use a tube adapter to sheath the stud and tilt it to the desired angle. The tube adapter is connected on one end to a foot component that can be attached to the welding gun and on the other to the ferrule. Template brushing components made from masonite or ebonite are stationed between the template and the tube adaptor. These components protect your template’s longevity and improve the accuracy of the weld. Virtually all drawn arc welding operations benefit from the use of a template.

Arc Welding – What is Arc Welding and How Does it Benefit Your Metal Working Needs

Arc welding is a type of stud welding technique with specific applications we’ll cover in this article.

In today’s post, we’ll show you why arc welding is so effective, which materials it works best for, and provide recommendations for using arc welding based on the job, industry, and more.

Before we dive into the topic of arc welding itself, let’s talk about the benefits of stud welding for metal workers.

The Stud Welding Difference

You’ve heard the concept of welding before.

It’s simple – welding is the process of connecting one metal to another. You can use a variety of techniques like x, y, and z.

Stud welding saves time, money, and materials by creating a more efficient way to connect these metals. With arc welding, the stud joins the piece of metal instantly because it heats the stud and metal at the same time.

You may be wondering why this is important.

Joining the stud and the metal at once creates a tightly knit and more durable bond. This means the structure you build with arc welding will maintain its strength longer.

There’s also less room for error and the need for rework. When you don’t use stud welding, you need more effort and put yourself at risk of having to reweld that part if the bolts don’t connect properly. Also, the “clinching process” of welding isn’t as strong or long-lasting as stud welding because the bond isn’t as strong as heating multiple parts at once.

You can see how this would lead to cost savings, too. It’s a simple equation — less labor time, less need for re-work, and fewer materials needed equals lower cost.

At Northland Fastening systems, we promote stud welding not only because we sell stud welding products, but because the process is simply better and easier. 

Let’s dive into the need to know details of arc welding and how it can apply to your needs.

Arc Welding Explained

In the arc welding process, the electric arc fuses metal together with heat generated by the electricity. This method differs from using gas, which is less efficient.

Arc welding can use both DC and AC electrical currents. This is important because not all welding units accept both currents. Arc welding fuses the stud using an electrode. This electrode conducts the electricity needed to generate the heat.

When arc welding, you can feed the electrode automatically over and over again. Why is this important?

There are certain processes that benefit from this automated technique:

  • Flux Cored Arc Welding (FCAW)
  • Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW)
  • Submerged Arc Welding (SAW)

If your machine shop or manufacturer uses these processes, arc welding helps complete them in the most efficient way.

The process also saves time in the following ways:

  • No need to switch parts like filler rods
  • Less chance for heat distortion – in other welding processes, spreading out the heat too much can distort the parts being fused together.
  • Decreases deposition rate – meaning you won’t use as much metal
  • Switching from manual to automatic processes (when this applies)

If you’re a machine shop owner or operator, the technical benefits are clear.

For purchasers working for companies with manufacturing needs, you can talk to your company about switching to this often easier and more efficient process. In many cases arc welding can be a more affordable solution because the process requires less equipment.

Applications

It’s important to know how this process works for different needs and industries.

It’s a process that works well for many applications, but here are some core industries where it works best.

Sheet Metal Fabrication

Sheet metal fabrication is often used for these industries:

  • construction – commercial, residential, and industrial
  • manufacturing equipment
  • kitchen equipment
  • elevators
  • shipbuilding – specifically hydraulic presses

Here’s the main benefit of stud welding for sheet metal fabrication — appearance.

Stud welding fuses metals together without leaving many marks. Think about the benefits of this seamless process. Your equipment, parts, and structures will have the look and feel of a precision part formed from scratch, even though the parts are fused together. This gives an added professional look. Details matter in all structures and having that clean look and feel can make a better impression on people who see them.

Again, the process is also more efficient because of the speed and it creates more durability.

Agriculture Equipment

To explain the process simply, different types of agricultural equipment have many large pieces of metal that are fused together like the chassis, cab frame, fenders, and brackets

The farm industry requires durable and strong parts for its equipment. The stud welding process is used in some of the most important machinery in the world.

It’s best to use the stud welding process in an industry we all rely on so much.

Lawn and Garden Equipment

Similar to agriculture equipment, although not as large in scale, you want your lawn and garden equipment like lawn mowers to have tightly fused and strong frames.

Other outdoor equipment like barbecues benefit from the seamless look of having arc welded parts

Hospitals, Schools, and Other Facilities with Industrial Needs

We won’t dive into the details of the large number of different pieces of equipment needed to run these facilities.

The point here is to focus on the importance of having a quick and reliable solution in industries where efficiency has a big impact.

Anytime you are working on a large project, time and money are of the utmost importance. Loss of materials, time spent on rework, the need for more labor, and less efficient processes can have a huge impact on your bottom line.

If you are building a new facility or revamping your current one, consider a stud welding solution to meet your needs quickly and in a cost-effective way.
