For both capacitive discharge and drawn arc stud welding, there are a variety of different choices in stud welds. With both systems, it is possible to choose between stainless steel, mild steel, aluminum and specialty alloy types of stud welds.
There are also a variety of different options in both threaded and non-threaded options. Generally, all types of threaded weld studs are used to connect and hold two materials together, similar to a bolt and nut fastener. However, with the use of the stud weld process, there is no need to drill through either piece and have to worry about tightening from both sides of the base and the mated piece.
Why Choose Stainless?
With the different options available, it may be difficult to see why stainless steel threaded studs are the best choice for many applications. To understand why they are the best choice, it is first important to take a closer look at the properties of stainless steel.
Like any stainless steel part or components, stainless steel threaded studs will be naturally highly corrosion resistant. This is one of the primary reasons stainless steel is chosen in applications where there is exposure to moisture, humidity, chemical agents or other types of corrosive materials.
Stainless steel is also a good option for high and low temperatures. While there are some specialty alloys which are better for extreme temperatures or significant temperature fluctuations, stainless steel threaded studs are more than effective in typical types of applications from construction to the manufacturing of equipment and machinery.
Stainless is also a very high strength type of alloy. This allows it to withstand fatigue issues which may be problematic with other types of alloys and options. This ability to withstand pressure as well as temperatures makes stainless a threaded stud to consider for many applications.
