The studs can range from small locating pins and threaded studs to a 1″ (25mm) diameter threaded stud or shear connectors (an unthreaded stud used in construction). Special studs also exist for securing insulation to metal ductwork and panels, for providing electrical grounding terminals, and for a host of other applications.
Stud Welding can be done using a manual handheld gun, a handheld gun with an autofeeder, a gun mounted on a stand, or a fully automated gun on a multi-axis CNC table that can feed multiple types of studs and accommodate multiple guns. HBS equipment offers solutions for all of these options.
In addition, HBS has a unique nut and spud (pad) welding process that uses a magnetically-controlled rotating ARC to create heat for welding the nut to a metal surface. This process (MARC) is patented and is unique to HBS.
