A headed concrete weld stud, which is often called a headed stud anchor, are a unique type of fastener that is used in construction. In most cases, these types of fasteners are used to attach metal to concrete.
The most common types of applications that will use a headed stud anchor are in bridge spans to tie the concrete deck to the steel girders that form the foundation of the bridge.
They are also used in building construction, particularly with concrete walls, floor and ceilings and metal framing. As this is common in everything from industrial plants to high-rises and office towers, these are an important part of the structural integrity of very large and very costly projects.
The Options To Consider
A headed stud anchor is a very simple looking weld stud. They have as smooth, straight shaft with an upset head. The head is moderately larger than the diameter of the shaft with standard configurations. The head is round in shape and heavier, not thin or tapered on the sides.
The options in the headed stud anchor will include the body diameter and the length. The larger diameter sizes of the body are most commonly found with the longer lengths. There is a minimum length for a specific diameter to provide the anchoring ability required. It is possible to customize these anchor studs for body and diameter.
The other option to consider is the ferrule. This is the ceramic ring used during the stud welding process. The ferrule can be designed to work on flat surfaces on the fillet or heel of an angle. The correct ferrule shape and design has to be used on the different surface types to correctly contain the molten pool and to shield the weld.
