Choosing the Right Stud Welding Supplies for Your Project

Stud welding provides a stronger, cleaner, and longer lasting weld that can benefit a variety of industries. However, not all stud welding is the same and different types of projects require different types of stud welding supplies. Where do you start? The stud welding experts at Northland Fastening Systems are here to help.

Today, we’re going to explore some of the different stud welding supplies we carry and which types of jobs they’re perfect for.

CD Studs

CD or capacitor discharge stud welding is perfect for working with lighter materials such as sheet metal. With a smaller diameter weld, CD stud welding provides a strong weld without sacrificing aesthetics. You won’t see any reverse-side dimples or backside marking. If you’re working on electrical enclosures, sheet metal fabrication, or food grade welding, CD stud welding may be the best option. If you decide to go the CD stud welding route, we have a variety of CD stud welding units available, including those with automation.

Arc Studs

For more robust projects, consider arc stud welding. This type of stud welding produces larger diameter welds (up to 1-1/4”) and is better for working with denser base materials. Arc stud welding provides greater strength and is preferred for structural steel fabrication, construction equipment manufacturing, or other industrial projects. They can even be used in heavy-duty concrete embedments. We carry a variety of anchor studs and weld studs for whatever your arc stud welding project needs.

CD Weld Pins

Your project may require you to insulate the metal you’re working with. CD weld pins can help you quickly and reliably attach insulation and are easy to use.

From industrial jobs using heavy base metals to jobs that require strength without sacrificing appearances, stud welding can get the job done.
