What is Stud Welding?

Stud welding is a powerful and reliable welding process for applying a single side fastener to a metal component, including stainless steel, mild steel, aluminium, aluminium alloy, and brass studs and components. A stud welder can work with a range of fasteners, including weld studs, pins, nails, and earth tags.

There are three main stud welding processes used in a range of manufacturing applications: capacitor discharge (CD), drawn arc (DA), and short cycle (SC). Each process is suited to particular materials and provides various capabilities, but all of these processes produce impressively strong and lasting results. A stud welding system can be used for a diverse range of industries, from electrical and mechanical to decorative and consumer.

Stud Welding Benefits

The benefits of Taylor Studwelding stud welder machines for industrial use include:

  • Superior strength: the process produces a welded joint that is, in fact, stronger than the stud and parent material, for high-quality, reliable fastening. This form of welding does not weaken the material with holes or reverse marking.
  • Minimal operator fatigue: our systems have been created to minimise operator fatigue, benefitting from balanced and lightweight designs.
  • Increased profit margins: the rapid nature of welding studs and flexible applications of our machines help companies save money as well as time.
  • Application Versatility: our equipment range has been designed to provide a variety of results depending on your requirements, company set-up, and budget.

Our Stud Welder Machines

We have stud welder machines to fulfil every requirement — whether you’re a large company or small, and no matter what industry in which you work. From hand-held stud welding guns through to automated CNC machinery, we have a stud welder for you.

DA stud welding machines are ideal for welding onto thicker materials (2mm and above), large diameter studs and materials with imperfections such as curvatures, grease or slight rusting. It’s a fantastic type of weld that is neat, strong and long-lasting.

CD stud welding machines are perfect for welding onto thinner materials (less than 2mm) with clean surfaces. It lends itself particularly well to aluminium, brass, mild steel and stainless steel. CD stud welding creates a strong hold without penetrating thin materials.

SC (or short cycle) stud welding produces welds that are more penetrative than CD, materials 1.5mm and thicker, and materials that are rolled or have a coating. More tolerant than CD of dirty surfaces, it’s a highly effective form of stud welding.
