Many industries and applications rely on welding fasteners to create high-strength, permanent connections between steel machinery and its attachments. Manufacturers often select between fasteners based on their efficiency and ability to produce unbreakable welds with a given piece of machinery.
OEM Fastening Systems offers a full line of welding fasteners designed to achieve superior performance in any application. We sell a range of projection weld pins and weld screws, and spot weld pins and weld screws are also available for purchase.
Types of Welding Fasteners
Applications throughout the manufacturing, construction, appliance, and automotive industries (to name a few) call for the effective use of threaded fasteners. In many cases, fasteners need to form a stronger attachment to a sheet metal surface than what self-clinching fasteners, rivets, or rivet nuts can achieve. Scenarios like these call for weld fasteners.
Whether your application exists in the light, medium, or heavy industrial manufacturing fields, weld fasteners can be used to ensure the safety of the employees and equipment in your plant. Everything from trailers and conveyors to subassemblies, framework, and weldments benefit from the proper use of weld fasteners, as these tools can work with all items manufactured from steel or sheet metal.
Weld fasteners are sold in a variety of forms. Usually, the best type of weld fastener for your application depends on the types of machinery to which it is applied. OEM Fastening Systems offers several varieties of weld fasteners, including:
- Weld pins
- Weld nuts
- Weld screws
We also build projection and spot welding fasteners for arc welding applications. Projection weld fasteners produce strong, precise welds by using two flat electrodes outfitted with projections to compress and fuse materials. This makes projection-welded fasteners beneficial to work performed in corners or other tight areas.
Spot welding, on the other hand, uses fasteners without projections. Spot welding uses either a rocker-arm or a press-type resistance welding system to weld directly to a piece of sheet metal. Fasteners used in these applications provide a hermetic seal and are outfitted with ring projections that circle around the flange of weld components.
