The drawn arc stud welding, short “stud welding” is a press-welding-technique. An arc is drawn between a stud and a workpiece, melting some of the metal on both parts. At the end of welding time the stud is plunged into the weld pool, the welding current is switched off and the weld pool solidifies.
The stud is placed against the workpiece.
The stud is lifted off, while current is flowing, thus creating an arc.
The arc melts the surfaces of stud and workpiece.
The stud is plunged into the weld pool.
A cross-sectional joint is achived.
By means of KÖCO-Stud Welding Technology, Threaded Studs, plain studs, Tapped Studs, Shear Connectors, Anchoring Studs etc. of diameter 2-25 mm will be cross-sectionally welded onto sheet metal, pipes, profiles etc.
The advantages of KÖCO stud welding technology are obvious:
