What is stud welding?

Stud welding is an instantaneous single-side fixing technique that allows studs, tapped studs, pins and other metal fasteners to be welded on sheet metal or other flat metal objects, by means of an electric arc, ignited between the end of the stud and the surface of the workpiece, and the subsequent application of a pressing force.

There are weld studs in many everyday objects, although they are often not visible: such peculiarity, among other features,  makes this joining technique widely used and often the only technical solution, especially for thin sheet metal.

There are many types of welding elements and weldable materials; applications and advantages of stud welding are even more numerous.
