CNC Stud Welding Machines

Fully automated stud welding is at your fingertips with our range of CNC stud welding machines. With our CNC machines, every aspect of the stud welding process can be computer-controlled and automated, from stud feeding and welding to loading and unloading. These machines always provide accurate positioning and powerful, lasting results. Our CNC stud welding machines boast some of the fastest welding rates in the world, achieving up to 60 studs per minute with an accuracy rate better than +/- 0.15mm. You can weld areas of up to 3000 x 2000mm with a Taylor Studwelding CNC stud welding machine, with up to 4 axes available for welding multiple studs (of 3mm to 8mm diameter), across multiple components, in a single program. Easy programming and a quick change system make it ideal for both long and short production runs.

You can also use our CNC stud welding machines with robots as a fully automatic, 5 axis stud welding solution perfect for 3D objects. All in all, a fully automated CNC machine is a highly economic and efficient choice that offers superior versatility and reliability. These machines have been designed, manufactured, and extensively tested in the UK with the high quality and ingenuity that Taylor Studwelding always provides.

Our CNC Stud Welding Systems

4 Axis Automatic Stud Welding Machine (1400mm x 1200mm)

This CNC stud welding machine has 4 axis welding capabilities. It is easy to programme for long or short production runs with quick changeover functionality. PC or PLC control are both available, as well as servo or stepper motor drivers with linear encoders for high positional accuracy on servo systems. A bowl feeder unit can automatically supply threaded, unthreaded, or internally threaded studs (M3 to M8 diameter and 6mm-35mm length as standard). This machine has an accuracy of 0.15mm.

4 Axis CNC Stud Welding Machine (2000mm x 600mm)

Another incarnation of our 4 axis CNC stud welding system, this machine also comes with an automatic bowl feeder unit, PC or PLC control, servo or stepper motors, and easy programming facilities with quick changeover functionality. Our fully guarded 4 axis systems have been designed with an open aluminium frame and t-slot profile bed. They are compatible with mild steel, stainless steel, aluminium alloy, and brass studs.

2 Axis CNC Stud Welding Machine (3 Weld Head)

This 2 axis stud welding machine can have up to 3 welding heads. Each head can be fed by one or more automatic bowl feeder unit. We can create these machines to the exact size you require, with servo or stepper drivers available. With some of the fastest cyclic welding rates in the world, you can depend on our CNC stud welding machines to deliver highly precise and powerful results.

2 Axis Stud Welding Machine (5 Weld Head)

This Taylor Stud Welding machinery can have up to 5 weld heads for impressive simultaneous 2 axis stud welding. As with our 3 weld head machine, the 5 weld head system comes with an automatic bowl feeder unit and either a servo or stepper motor. We can customise its size based on your requirements. Each weld head can be fed by one or more bowls for stud welding that is highly efficient as well as powerfully precise.

Stud Welding Machine with Load/Unload Facility

For a fully automatic production cycle, this Taylor Studwelding machine has a load and unload handling system that positions the component on the welding bed with a dedicated servo system for precise and consistent positioning accuracy. The welding head itself has a stud position sensor to ensure highly accurate results. A vibratory bowl feeder unit efficiently provides studs to the head and dual controllers allow for impeccably fast welding rates. Finally, the load/unload facility moves the finished component to the unloading area.

Robotic Stud Welding

A robot enhances the efficiency of automatic stud welding processes, introducing the possibility of 24 hour running for great productivity with consistent running costs. In this video, you can see the robot working with our 4 axis unit.

3D Robotic Stud Welding

As you can see in this video, it’s possible to weld studs to complex 3D components with a robot.
