A New Take on Stud Manufacturing

The History of Stud Manufacturing

Historically Studs were chamfered on a belt sander and hand stamped. This process was labor intensive and costly not to mention the increased risk for mistakes. Another method for stud manufacturing is chamfering in a lathe if the chamfer dimensions are precise such as for critical industries like aerospace, energy, and medical. Our studmaster machine significantly cuts down on production time and costs. A chamfer is a transitional edge between two sides of an object that is often created between the two sides of a 90* Angle. It is used in many applications to help ease with assembly when multiple pieces are involved and also removes a sharp edge which reduces room for workplace injuries. With metal applications it prevents damage to the metal.  The chamfered end is also called a “lark’s tongue” due to the similarity in shape.
