- 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 TS-1900 is a fully regulated, stud welding power supply available in single or dual gun versions. Rectifier power source is 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.
