Abstract

This article serves as a basic information source for those interested in accomplishing one-sided, no-hole attachment of metal fasteners. The stud arc-welding process is a substitute for fastening procedures such as drilling and tapping, bolting, and self-tapping screws. The article describes the operating principle of, and the tooling and equipment used for, the welding process. It contains tables that present information on the mechanical properties of aluminum, stainless steel, and low-carbon steel stud arc welded fasteners. The article details the different tests conducted to ensure the quality of stud arc-welded fasteners. It concludes with information on safety precautions to be followed in the welding process.
