Drawn Arc (DA) stud welding achieves very strong penetrative welds on materials of 2mm thickness and above. Drawn Arc products are really the only choice for stud welding large diameters and they can tolerate surface curvature and imperfections such as light rust, grease, and scale. The DA process provides a supremely neat and controlled weld fillet and is suited to multi-gun applications.
The DA process involves setting current and weld time, lifting a stud to a pre-set height, then using the pilot arc the lifting causes to create a molten pool in the plate. Return spring force then forges the stud into the molten pool; the process requires a ferrule to contain the molten metal and shape the fillet.
Taylor Studwelding’s DA Controllers are microcomputer controlled with visual displays and infinitely adjustable welding times and currents. They are all soak tested and undergo extensive durability tests to ensure their quality and efficiency. The 1200E, 1600E, 2000E, and 2700E Drawn Arc Controllers are fitted with four wheels and brakes for safe manoeuvrability and all Controllers are fitted with a gas facility and automatic cooling functionality.
The Pan Welder System is our most powerful and effective Drawn Arc stud welding system, capable of welding up to 8 studs per minute with a fully pneumatic welding rig and easy to adjust Controller with an LCD information display. The welding head has an easily adjustable height facility and a built-in argon shroud for superior flexibility and strength.
