WELD FASTENERS AT AFI

Stronger, Safer Connections

Stud welding is a process in which bolts, nuts, and other weld fasteners are welded directly onto the surface of a metal component. This process allows for the attachment of additional components to the original by way of the weld fasteners. Connections made with weld fasteners are very strong, eliminating the need for further, more complex and larger-scale welding operations.

Weld Fasteners

Spot welding of weld fasteners is an incredibly versatile process. First used in the shipbuilding industry — an industry revolutionized by its introduction — spot welding continues to have modern applications in that industry, as well as in electrical panels, building construction, automobile bodies, and more. Virtually every manufacturing industry can and does employ weld fasteners and stud welding for a number of different purposes.

Weld fasteners are available in a tremendous array of configurations, from standard screws and bolts to levelers, from nuts and specialty nuts to pins, and from tabbed inserts to specialty fittings such as valves, brackets, and electrodes.
