Drawn Arc Weld Studs
Our standard DA weld studs are available in low carbon content Mild Steel (EN 898-1 compliant) and Stainless Steel A2-50 (EN ISO 3506-1 compliant). We can also supply heat resistant steels and non-ferrous aluminium studs up to 12mm diameter as special requests. Our standard studs come with a bright finish, but we can provide numerous other finishes, including zinc, copper and nickel plating.
As Drawn Arc stud welding is a slightly more forgiving process than CD stud welding, it is suitable to use headed or turned studs. We supply both turned and headed studs as standard, depending on the quantity and material required for manufacturing. All the DA studs we supply come with ceramic ferrules, as these are essential to the Drawn Arc process where shielding gas is not being used.
We are also able to produce studs for short cycle welding and automatic feeding as required.
