A weld pin is a useful fastener device that is designed with a slender thin shaft that allows the pin to be welded to a metal surface. Weld pins can be used with any type of standard resistant welding equipment and are designed to provide complete sheet to pin fusion. In addition, weld pins can be used with multi-head, automatic-feed, single-head, dual-head, and portable systems for a wide variety of applications.

Spot weld pins are well-suited for use as a bearing surface or a hinge pin. If you are looking to spot weld within a confined space or narrow channel, then a right angle weld pin is what your project may require. In addition, if your project application is the edge of a metal sheet a flat spade weld pin is the ideal tool for the job. However, right angle spade weld pins feature a round head, making them an ideal choice for mating to a keyhole-shaped slot.
The unique design of the projection weld pin allows for the three precise weld projections located on the head to attach to the underside of the opposing panel without the need for a through hole. Since the three projections of the right angle weld pin are of equal height and diameter, it allows for a properly balanced and positioned weld.
Weld Pin Advantages
There is an abundant amount of benefits associated with the use of spot weld pins and projection weld pins for your secure construction and welding needs. Some of the more prevalent features and benefits of weld pins, include:
- Excellent strength
- Conical point reduces weld time
