What to Know Before Buying Stud Welding Equipment
Whether you are buying all new stud welding equipment or replacing old equipment as it gradually reaches the end of its lifecycle, getting the best product at a fair price is important.

Welding Processes Required
There are many different types of equipment used in stud welding. For example, certain applications require drawn arc and Capacitor discharge welding as well as other types of welding processes. The specific type of stud and the workpiece needed also play a big factor in the type of welding required.
Our advice? Know what you need and anticipate what you may require in the future. This will help you select the right stud welder and equipment for your business or shop.
While cost is often an indication of the quality that you can expect with stud welding equipment, it can also be misleading. Different companies offer different standard and optional features, particularly with equipment, so being able to compare apples to apples and not just prices to prices is critical.
Take the time to make a side-by-side comparison, considering everything from when maintenance is scheduled to the features that come with the basic price.
Finally, don’t forget to take a close look at the optional features as well. While they will add to the initial cost, they can make the operation much easier and more automated. The additional feature may even extend the life of the equipment, all which will be factored into the price.
