CDM Range

CDM Capacitor Discharge Stud Welding Machines

Taylor Studwelding has designed and manufactured these CD systems to meet all required standards and they are CE marked as proof of high quality. CDM machinery is suitable for use with both contact and lift gap style stud welding guns; if you need to use hand tools in combination, try the CDM Multi Gun range, which can operate up to any range of three contact/lift gap hand tools.

CDM Capacitor Discharge Stud Welding Machines

The CDM capacitor discharge stud welding machines range is both highly cost-effective and reliable, providing powerful welding action that is fast and accurate. These robustly manufactured yet lightweight machines weld rapidly and recharge quickly, improving your workplace efficiency and profit margins. By combining power and portability, these CD stud welding controllers are top of the market for many industries, providing welds that really last while weighing as little as 16 kilograms.

CDM capacitor discharge stud welding machines can weld CD studs from 2mm up to 10mm in diameter, including studs made from mild steel, stainless steel, aluminium, and brass, all of which are available from our CD studs catalogue. Suitable materials to weld using these machines include mild and stainless steels, aluminium, and Zintec (zinc-coated mild steel). CD stud welding is ideal for thin gauge parent materials that are flat and clean, achieving flawless and strong welds with minimal marking. The improved strength provided by the welded joint between stud and sheet makes stud welding a truly superior process for fixing and fastening.
