What Are The Common Stud Types?
• Fully Threaded Stud: A stud that is essentially just a length of threaded rod. Stud or stud is also a term for threaded rod. This can be used to hold large parts together, with nuts at each end to form a bolt. This type of stud has many other uses in providing adjustable members for structures and machines. The nut is capable of moving great distances along the rod while also exerting a great deal of force.
• Self-Tapping Stud: Has a short thread on one end and is designed to be screwed into a tapped hole. They then have a shank and longer threads on the other end to mount the nut.
• Stud: Threaded at both ends for mounting nuts, with a rod in the middle.
• Weld Bolts: These bolts have full-length machined threads and a thinner head to make them easier to weld, and are typically welded to steel structures to provide studs for permanent attachment.
• Standoff Studs: These have a small, tapered head with teeth designed to permanently mold themselves into the sheet metal when tightened.
• Adhesive Studs: Threaded full length with a flat, wide head, usually with a hole in the head. Designed for bonding into composite parts to provide permanent metal studs.
• Set Screw: A wood screw at one end and a machine screw at the other end. They are designed to be permanently screwed into wood, providing studs to secure parts with nuts. A socket at the end of a machine screw or a hex between two threads is used for tightening.
