Doncasters offers a broad range of stud and high-strength critical fasteners through Group companies Nelson Stud Welding and The Ferry Cap & Set Screw Company. We serve many of the major automotive and transportation OEMs in the U.S. and abroad. Typical applications include securing body trims, electrical fuel and hydraulic lines, components and insulation. The elimination of holes and thus the inherent rust problems offers a major advantage. Moreover, stud welding is ideal for heavy duty truck applications as stud welding of axle housings cuts the cost in half for brake wiring.
Nelson Studs are used for such applications as automated welding and assembly systems, vehicle insulation, hydraulic brake and fuel lines, and grounding applications.
