Stud welding is where a metal stud is quickly welded to a base metal instantaneously, utilising an arc to melt the areas being joined.  ShapeCUT now offers one of the most popular methods of stud welding: Drawn Arc Stud Welding.

Utilising our brand new PRO-D 2800 (2-25mm) and GD 25 machines, our skilled team of Brisbane metal processors can apply mild steel or stainless steel Drawn Arc Stud, complete with ceramic ferrule, directly to the steel plate. The controlled electric arc process creates a direct hot area that’s suitable for fixing studs to structural and heavy industrial applications. ShapeCUT stocks the largest range of steel plates, from 0.5mm to 300mm as well as non-standard sizes, ideal for a range of steel processing projects that require stud welding.

There are many benefits to using the drawn arc system, especially when used in conjunction with ShapeCUT’s profile cutting services.

  • Drawn arc stud welding is a cost-effective solution as it eliminates the need for a secondary operation
  • It eradicates the need to drill or tap holes, and the ceramic ferrule means no need for rivet heads, bolts, nuts or washers
  • This system is undeniably strong, ensuring continuity of strength from the parent metal to the stud
  • It offers next level accuracy, and is a safe, reliable solution that can produce a higher production speed
