- A TUFFSTUDS is positioned in contact with the work surface.
- The operator pulls the welding gun trigger, initiating the welding arc and automatically lifting the stud.
- The main welding current melts a portion of the stud and work surface. Within a second, the TUFFSTUDDS is plunged into the molten pool.
- The ceramic arc shield (ferrule) retains the molten metal in the weld area for maximum strength and safety, and the TUFFSTUDD is metallurgic-ally bonded to the work surface at the weld interface.
The application of TUFFSTUDDS Wear Protection System is safe, reliable and easily applied using equipment designed for the stud welding process.
Our stud welding equipment package is fully featured and will provide many years of dependable and trouble-free service, whether in your facility or at the job site. It is easy to operate and maintenance costs are low.
The TS-1900 is a fully regulated, stud welding power supply available in single or dual gun versions. The rectifier power source is a constant current – variable voltage. A setup mode allows adjustment of the desired weld time and current prior welding, which is displayed on the front panel digital meters. A specially designed electronic gun control circuit has been incorporated into the system. If a fault condition occurs as a result of a shorted gun solenoid or a faulty control cable, the circuit will prevent gun re-triggering and eliminate damage to the circuit board.
Diesel driven field systems are available upon request.
