Capacitor discharge studs are very useful in the welding process, particularly when it comes to welding aluminum. Unlike steel, aluminum conducts electricity much more efficiently; this can actually be problematic to the point where welding aluminum is virtually impossible without using capacitor discharge studs. Without using such studs, the heat is quickly dissipated away from

It is difficult to find a more commonly used weld stud than the all-threaded options. These are easy to identify as they offer a simple design that includes a full thread along the length of the weld stud down to the very slight part at the base where the stud will contact the metal surface.
A shear connector, which is also commonly known as a headed stud anchor, is used almost exclusively in construction applications. These stud anchors are used on bridge decks, for applying decking on buildings and for the construction of commercial buildings that use concrete and steel materials. The Basics A headed stud anchor is used for
There are two different options for stud welding. One is capacitor discharge stud welding, often know as CD stud welding or projection welding. Capacitor discharge welding using weld studs, which look very similar to threaded or unthreaded bolts. For use with project welding, there are projection weld studs. These also look somewhat like bolts and
A portable welding stud gun is a piece of equipment that is invaluable. It allows for easy welding in virtually any location where you have access to a power supply. There are many different models and options on the market and taking the time to compare and consider your options is time well spent before
