Stud welding systems are a simple way to attach tags to steel products in one quick step. The systems use lightweight welding studs with patented skirted collars to hold tags securely on products such as steel billets, rebar, and structurals.

  • Lightweight welding gun is easy to operate
  • Creates strong welds in a fraction of a second
  • 6″, 12″, and 20″ chuck extensions for safely attaching tags to hot materials

The Capacitor Discharge (CD) Welding Method

Stud tip is placed in contact with the workpiece. Electric arc is initiated.

Ignited arc creates a thin fusion zone on stud and workpiece.

Stud is forced into the molten pool. Material solidifies and stud is welded.
