When qualifying a stud welding procedure per AWS D1.1, using a particular manufacturer's equipment and set-up, may the subsequent stud welding WPS utilize any manufacturer's equipment with the same parameters? It is noted in ASME IX that a change in power source or stud gun model number represents a change in an essential variable. The AWS code is not so clear on that note.
