Short cycle welding is an abbreviated version of the drawn arc stud welding process. The short cycle welding process involves weld studs which are 3/8″ and smaller and surfaces which are thinner in diameter. With this type of welding, the weld current is higher and the weld time is shorter, thus the “short cycle” name. While this process is similar to drawn arc, it does not use a flux load or ferrule. It also offers the shortest welding times of all the drawn arc stud welding options.
