Shoulder Base Weld Studs (Shoulder Stud)
A shoulder base stud provides a boss area for mating parts to seat against. Shoulder base studs are made to order. If you are thinking of using a shoulder base stud, consider a collar stud as well. A collar stud will provide a similar boss / land area as a shoulder base stud at a cost and delivery time savings. The fundamental difference between a shoulder base stud and a collar stud is that the base of a shoulder stud can handle more shear than the base of a collar stud for a given thread size. However, a collar stud can be welded to a thinner gauge of metal than a shoulder base stud for a given thread size. All Image Industries shoulder studs are threaded for nut fastening.
Although for most projects a standard collar stud can provide much the same outcomes as a shoulder stud (and is usually a more versatile option), there may be projects where only a shoulder stud will do.
