Gas arc stud welding is an excellent process, but it’s application must be a good match.
The key advantage of gas arc stud welding is that no ferrule is used. Many customers are tempted by this because of the lower initial cost and the lower cost of cleanup. However, because the flash is uncontrolled, the molten metal may spread over a wider area creating an issue for mating parts.
Gas arc stud welding is often used with robotics. Because of the extra material handling requirement of the ferrule, gas arc stud welding is often chosen. The precise nature of robotic systems work well with the gas arc option.
