➤SKIP TO: DOUBLE ENDED STUDS | SELF CLINCHING STUDS | WELD STUDS

General Description: Studs are categorized as a fastener with no head, which has threads at both ends of the shank. Like a screw, one end of a stud is inserted into an internally tapped hole and tension is induced by tightening a nut on the other end. Studs are typically used with Capacitor Discharge (CD) Welding and Arc Welding processes resulting in a variety of finished products.

Double Ended Studs

Double Ended Studs have threads on each end to accommodate a nut or mating part. Length of the stud is measured overall and the ends are usually chamfered points but may be rounded. Double Ended Studs are used for flange bolting or other applications where attachment from both ends is desirable.

MATERIAL OPTIONS: Steel, Stainless Steel, Copper Alloys (Brass, Bronze, Copper), Titanium

PLATING OPTIONS: Plain is the most common, based on applications. Copper, Copper Flash, Tin, Silver or customer specification is also available.

Self Clinching Studs

Self Clinching studs are usually threaded, and when pressed into ductile metal, they displace the material around the mounting hole. A serrated clinching ring, knurl or hex head prevents the fastener from rotating in the material once it has been inserted. As a result it becomes a permanent part of the panel, chasis, bracket or other item it is inserted into. Self Clinching studs are commonly used where good pullout and torque loads are required.

Weld Studs

These fasteners can be a variety of forms including threaded, unthreaded, tapped, right angles, and spade. There are two methods of stud welding: Capacitor Discharge Stud Welding (CD) and Arc Stud Welding.
