Capacitor Discharge (CD) stud welding systems use a small ignition tip at the base of the weld stud to produce an arc. Pressure applied during the arc forces the base of the weld stud into the molten metal and welds the stud in .003 seconds. This fast weld time produces very little heat and allows welding studs to thin materials with minimum reverse side markings. The CD process can weld studs from #4 to 3/8" diameter in steel, and up to 5/16" in aluminum. This type of stud welding is used in the manufacturing of signs, kitchen equipment, control panels, and a host of other applications.
