Tip ignition (CD) procedure

DSC 0109
The tip ignition process impresses with its simple handling and extremely short welding time in the field of thin sheet metal technology.

Typical areas of application are :
Switch cabinet construction, vehicle construction, facade technology, cathodic corrosion protection, insulation on metal,

- Inexpensive welding studs
- 230V AC connection is sufficient
- simple handling
- inexpensive devices
- easy to automate
- no or, depending on the application, only mirror-visible markings on the opposite side
- painted backs possible

Tip Ignition contact:

In " contact welding ", the stud is pressed against a spring force when the welding gun
or automatic welding head is headed onto the workpiece.
This means that there is electrical contact between the stud
between the stud ignition tip and the workpiece.
When the welding is triggered by the operator or the automatic welding head, the
the ignition tip melts abruptly and ignites the arc between the stud flange and the workpiece.
The stud now moves towards the workpiece by the distance
that has been freed by the melting of the ignition tip.
After the final seating of the stud, the melt pool solidifies.


Steel, stainless steel, aluminium, brass,metal coated sheets.

Due to the stronger joining force and the longer welding time
the contact process is suitable for steel and stainless steel, as well as for galvanically
galvanically coated sheet metal.

Tip ignition gap:

In gap stud welding, the stud is pretensioned against a spring with the aid of a magnetic coil.
against a spring with the help of a magnetic coil. A gap is created between the stud
and the work piece, which is predefined by spacers on the welding gun.
When the welding process is triggered by the operator, the solenoid coil is
released and the stud is accelerated by the spring towards the workpiece.
As soon as the electrical contact is established, the
forward movement of the stud, which is terminated by the impact of the stud is terminated.


Steel, stainless steel, aluminium

Due to the shorter welding time, the slitting process is suitable for steel and stainless steel as well as for aluminium sheets.
aluminium sheets. Due to the lower joining force, the splitting method is mostly
in the automated sector.
