What is Capacitor Discharge Stud Welding?
CD stud welding is often use in situations where putting a hole in the sheet metal (as is used for self-clinching fasteners) is not an option. This usually goes hand in hand with the sheet being required to maintain a blemish free show surface opposite the studded side. Since we have very precise control of the time, current & pressure being used to create the weld, we can often eliminate or reduce greatly any cosmetic damage to the show side of the sheet metal.
With an IWT LYNX stud welding system, you can also weld CD standoffs or “tapped pads”as they are known within the industry. These tapped pads use female threads which give you the opportunity to hold one piece of material apart from another at a specific distance and in a secure manner.
Both CD studs and tapped pads are often found in a variety of everyday products such as signs & displays, elevators, gaming machines (slot machines, etc…), furniture, automobiles and many more.
