Pitch Diameter Arc Weld Stud
The Pitch Diameter, Partial Thread, Arc Weld Stud features a weld base diameter that is slightly larger than that found on fully threaded weld studs. The larger weld base gives this weld stud a higher shear value compared to its fully threaded counterpart. These studs are welded using a standard arc weld process and are flux-loaded at the weld end to facilitate the welding process. These industrial fasteners are available from JHP Fasteners in a variety of materials, dimensions, and thread sizes.
Typical properties of this Pitch Diameter, Partial Thread, Arc Weld Stud:
Material: Your choice of Mild Steel or Stainless Steel
Available Thread Sizes: 1/4-20, 5/16-18, 3/8-16, 1/2-13, 5/8-11, 3/4-10
Note: A wide variety of stud body lengths and diameters also available.
The pitch diameter arc weld stud is attached using standard arc welding techniques. A weld gun lifts the weld stud away from the base metal surface while a power source generates a controlled electric arc. The electric arc melts the end of the stud as well as a portion of the base metal. The weld stud is then plunged into the molten metal. This process creates a high-quality weld joint. The unthreaded weld base works to minimize the diameter and height of the weld fillet.
During the arc welding process, a small portion of the weld stud will be burned away. Therefore, the post-weld stud length will be slightly shorter than the pre-weld length. This fact should be taken into consideration when selecting an appropriate stud length.
The pitch diameter arc weld stud is an ideal choice for those applications that require additional shear strength.
