Image Industries is one of only a few manufacturers that can offer you complete stud welding solutions. Image not only provides cutting-edge equipment technology that we design and build ourselves, we also provide state-of-the-art weld stud fasteners and other innovative stud weld fastening solutions. You can rely on Image Industries to find the best solutions for you regardless of what brand of stud welding equipment you may be using.
At Image, we pride ourselves on providing application expertise, exceptional customer service, and value-added assembly services to help you meet your most demanding fastening requirements. We were the first domestic manufacturer to introduce digital welding technology for quick, easy stud welding with greater productivity.


Our drawn arc and capacitor discharge (CD) stud welding equipment provides our customers with a wide variety of shapes, sizes, and
gauges, including specialty fasteners. Our Smart Weld™ digital arc stud welding equipment helps raise productivity with features like Auto Weld™, which enables operators to determine weld parameters quickly by simply entering the fastener size and type of material.


The drawn arc stud welding method provides highly reliable fastening for a wide variety of applications. This method allows almost any size or configuration of a metal stud to be welded quickly to a workpiece, while providing maximum weld penetration and reliability.

Our CD stud welding solutions offer the advantages of very short weld times and welding small-diameter studs to thin, lightweight materials. One of the benefits of shorter weld times is minimized heat build-up, resulting in much less weld distortion, discoloration, or burning. If appearance is a major concern for your welds, CD may be an ideal option.


Image weld studs feature standard threads (UNC-2A for U.S. threads and 6g for metric threads) as well as customized thread specifications available upon request. Carbon steel and standard mild steel are the standard materials for our metal fasteners, and other materials are available through special order.

We provide a variety of options for weld studs, including:

Drawn Arc
Capacitor Discharge (CD)
Advanced Process (AP) Studs
Hammer Weld Studs
Wire Tie-Down Studs
Hydraulic Port Studs

NEW CD66 Capacitor Discharge Stud Welder

The Most Compact and Lightweight Welding Unit Available on the Market

Image Industries introduces their latest stud welding industry innovation — the CD66 (Capacitor Discharge) Stud Welder. Measuring 10 5/8" x 9 11/16" x 6 7/8" (270 mm x 246 mm x 174 mm), the CD66 weighs only 10.5 lbs. (4.76 kg). Its tough, corrosion-proof plastic case is made from an ultra-high-impact co-polymer that provides extra insulation and resists rusting and denting in demanding work environments. The CD66 is by far the smallest, lightest (1/2 the weight of competitors), and toughest stud welder on the market today.
