Different Drawn Arc Weld Studs and Their Uses

September 4, 2017

As a specialized company focusing on providing welding studs and stud welding equipment, Image Industries offers a much greater range of studs than our industry competitors. With our ability to work with your design and engineering team to create custom drawn arc weld studs to meet your project’s needs and specifications, we can provide the ideal parts for your projects in both high volume and smaller orders.

We specialize in many different categories of weld studs such as drawn arc weld studs and CD weld studs, as well as specialized studs for cable management and hydraulic fittings. In this article, we highlight a few of our most popular drawn arc welding stud options.

Threaded Weld Studs

The vast majority of our on-hand inventory are threaded weld studs. These studs are used to fasten or join a base workpiece to another part or component. The threading on the stud allows a nut to be used to fasten two pieces without drilling a hole or needing to secure the opposite end of the stud to tighten the nut.

Shear Connectors

Shear connector studs or headed anchor studs are used in construction to attach two different materials, typically concrete and steel. They are essential in bridge construction and building construction where the headed part of the stud forms the anchor into the concrete, joining the two materials together forming a composite construction and providing major cost savings.


No-thread studs are typically used in equipment manufacturing and fabrication to form handles, stops, and locators. These come in a range of sizes and, like most of the welding studs, they are available in mild and stainless steel.
