Full Base Drawn Arc Weld Studs

favicon-ipad-retinaA Full Base Stud is manufactured so the base of the stud is the same diameter as the nominal thread diameter. This gives a stud maximum shear capabilities for its diameter. A full base does not offer any increase in tensile since the threads dictate the minimum affected stress area. These studs are frequently used in applications where maximum shear is important and maximum fastener size is limited. Due to required manufacturing processes, a Full Base Stud will be more expensive than equivalent size Pitch Diameter and Full Thread Studs.
