NELSON STUDS: WORLD LEADERS IN STUD WELDING
Stud welding was developed to attach wooden planks to US Navy aircraft carriers in 1939. It’s expanded to thousands of different welding applications, including auto, furniture, insulation and construction. Its advantages include one-sided fastening, strength (the weld is stronger than the stud), no holes (therefore no places where water can collect and rust the metal), design flexibility, ease of assembly and lowest in-place cost.
In these days of ever-increasing production costs, being able to reduce the production time taken is extremely important. The Nelson Stud Welding process is that process.
A system consists of a lightweight welding gun, a power control unit, and an array of studs in different metals (depending on the requirements).
Thousands of buildings and bridges are made stronger and safer with Nelson Stud Welding through the use of Nelson Shear Connector studs which bond concrete to steel to develop a composite unit.
Nelson Stud Welding can weld up to 45 studs per minute. There’s no distortion of structural members, and the equipment is so light it can be used almost anywhere.
It can be used for bearing plates, column base plates and other steel and concrete elements.
