Weld fasteners provide a preferred materially binding solution for creating super-strong and permanent connections between steel sheet or tubing and fasteners. These unique fasteners feature durable threads with proven reliability, saving significant time and money over hand welding processes. Some weld fastener options include weld nuts, weld studs, and weld pins.
Monroe-JHP Fasteners provides resistance welding fasteners in numerous thread sizes and dimensions for all your project needs. Check out our Weld Fasteners Guide for picture descriptions of our weld fastener offerings, or request a quote for direct pricing and availability today.
How do Weld Fasteners Work?Resistance-welded fasteners are materially binding and can potentially eliminate the need for laborious welding operations. Premium resistance weld fasteners allow additional components to be attached to an existing metal part while allowing the fastener to stay permanently attached. Weld fasteners offer an excellent solution for creating a super-strong and permanent connection between steel and the fastener.
Weld fasteners are available in various forms depending on your application needs. The styles of weld fasteners we carry include the following options.
Welding Fastener Product Options
A weld nut is a highly engineered fastener designed to be welded to another steel object. The weld nut you choose for your design should be based on your application's size, shape, thickness, and configuration. To maintain their form and allow for larger projections, weld nuts are generally made with more material than other nuts. Weld nuts are available in several variations.
Because of the different types available, weld studs can be ideal for light or heavy-duty applications. These specific welding fasteners allow weld screws to be welded on or through a metal surface. Weld studs are available in various materials, styles, and sizes.
A weld pin is designed with an unthreaded shaft often used as a permanently mounted guide for parts that will be assembled on top of it later. Depending on the style selected, weld pins can be used with press-type resistant welding equipment or a CD stud welder and are designed to provide complete sheet-to-pin fusion capabilities. Weld pins provide excellent strength with reduced overall weld time compared to hand welding. Weld pins are generally used for shipbuilding, construction, ductwork, bridges, and much more.
Weld fasteners are ideal for applications requiring a threaded fastener more sturdily attached to a sheet metal surface than a self-clinching fastener or rivet nut. Weld fasteners can be utilized in light, medium, or heavy industrial manufacturing to produce a wide range of products, including:
Welding Fastener Applications
- Architectural components
- Agricultural equipment
- Construction & mining equipment
Capacitor discharge stud welding (CD welding) provides an easy and effective way to install many weld fasteners, including weld pins, studs, and standoffs. CD welding systems are easy to operate and ultra-efficient since they contain simple components, are fast, and can be used in a comprehensible four-step method. The four-step process of CD welding includes contact (fastener placement), ignition, and weld completion. Some of the added advantages of CD welding weld fasteners include:
How to Install CD Style Weld Pins & Weld Studs
- Simple operation without special power hookups
- Special welding enclosures are not required
- Weld masks or unique welding clothing are not required
