TWE 18500 Medium Duty Stud Gun (5/8″ Max Dia.)


The TWE18500 has been designed to fit all hands comfortably, including when wearing a work glove. The neck of the handle has been tapered so that when grasped, the trigger can be accessed easily, without any unnecessary strain. The handle length allows for better balance of the stud gun and keeps the welding cable and connector away from your hand, minimizing operator fatigue.

The TWE18500 is approximately 8.5″ long from the weld cable to the back cap, and approximately 7″ long from the top of the stud gun to the bottom of the handle. The overall weight of the gun is approximately 4.8 lbs., excluding 8.5 feet of 2/0 weld cable and 9 feet of control cable (this also excludes all connectors, legs, and foot piece). Gun includes phoenix style connector.

The TWE18500 can be ordered to operate with any type of stud welding equipment. Simply specify the make and model of your equipment and we will provide you with a stud gun connection that is compatible with your unit, regardless of the manufacturer. 90 day warranty.

About Arc Stud Welding

Arc Stud Welding is a process by which operators rapidly weld large diameter fasteners (>0.5″) to thick, rough metals. In Arc stud welding, an operator places a fastener (held in place by a chuck) and a ceramic ferrule against a parent metal by using an Arc stud gun. Once the operator pulls the trigger of the stud gun, a controlled electric arc melts the end of the fastener and the weld site, creating a strong fusion weld. The ceramic ferrule retains the heat and molten metal around the weld site. This further strengthens the fastener’s fusion to the parent metal. Additionally, the process of arc stud welding allows operators to weld dissimilar metals such as mild steel, stainless steel, and aluminum.
