Stud Welders

Portable Stud Welders and Studs for Arc Welding

Adding fasteners to metal is easy and efficient when you have a stud gun system from WeldingMart. Originally used in the shipbuilding industry, stud welding attaches all kinds of threaded, unthreaded and tapped fasteners to a base metal or substrate by heating both parts so they can bond. This process takes milliseconds to complete but is highly reliable, and it has been adapted for processes that range from fixing airplanes to removing dents from cars.

With an IWT or Tru-Weld stud welder, you'll have a cost-effective, splatter-free machine that can be used even by inexperienced metalworkers. Designed for permanent fastener attachment, a stud welding gun is an effective alternative to other methods such as dripping, tapping and back-welding. Stud welding machines can simplify the construction of bridges, highway barriers, car exhaust systems, electrical wire routing, equipment stands and much more, making them essential equipment for many professional welders and business owners.

Stud Welder Systems

WeldingMart has a stud welder for sale that will quickly and securely bond fasteners to metal. These precision systems come in several designs for powering through repetitive processes. Get a single-gun stud welder that will handle most shop needs or step up to a dual-gun system for large industrial projects. We carry drawn arc stud guns for standard metals and capacitor discharge welders for use with smaller-diameter studs and thin materials. Rolling stud gun welders have wheels to move them around the shop to different projects; portable stud welders are another option if you are an on-site contractor.

Stud guns also come in different sizes to handle various stud diameters. Lighter-duty systems can weld studs up to one-half inch while industrial-grade systems can handle one-inch and even 1.25-inch fasteners. You'll also have to consider the welding method. Some stud guns use the contact method where the fastener touches the base when you start welding. Others are designed for gap welding with a faster beginning a certain distance from the base, which is ideal for brass and aluminum. Certain modular stud welders can do both.
