Wear Studs

What are Wear Studs?

Wear Studs are widely used in the Earth-moving and Mining Industries. They are essentially small hardened metal buttons, installed in close formation to form a dense pattern and a barrier between the product being moved and the base material. Used successfully in reducing wear on buckets, loaders, crushers, tipper trays, or any surface subject to high abrasion from dirt, rock and ore.

How well do they work?

Wear studs are used in some of the worst wear situations imaginable, they can extend wear life between 3 and 10 times that of traditional ‘quench and tempered plate’ or ‘hard facing’. Of course wear life is dependent on particle type, hardness, size and many other factors.

We install or you install yourself?

Wearstuds are an item that must be installed by purpose build studwelding machines. Studco installs tens of thousands of wear studs every year, to clients all across Western Australia. Or we can sell you the equipment to install yourself.
