Drawn Arc Stud Welding Guns

Taylor Studwelding’s range of drawn arc stud welding guns has been designed to achieve lightness and balance, effectively minimising operator fatigue. Verton frames make each gun highly impact resistant for lasting use. There are two main ways in which our stud welding guns differ from one another: cable thickness and stud lifting ability. For those looking to achieve short cycle stud welding, we have also developed two specialist guns.

Over time, we have created models with thicker connecting cables to effectively handle larger studs and heavier workloads. Thicker cables are not as affected by overheating and are less likely to lose voltage. Plus, by taking the pressure off the cable, your drawn arc stud welding machine instead handles high temperatures. Our machines have been designed to automatically switch off if the transformer gets too hot. This saves you time and money on repairs as well as reducing operational risk. We also have many clients who require extra lifting capabilities for the studs they are welding; Taylor Studwelding has designed our Hi-Lift range of guns to address these requirements.

Standard Drawn Arc Stud Welding Guns

Standard Drawn Arc Stud Welding Guns

Our standard model DA stud welding guns are the DA 2A and DA 3A. For most drawn arc stud welding machines and applications, the DA 2A is the optimal model with its 50mm² thick cable. This gun can weld studs of up to 16mm in diameter at a rate of up to 10 studs per minute. We have also developed the DA 3A for use with wider diameter studs, including M20 studs or any studs above 16mm in diameter. This gun has a 70mm² cable, which is more resistant to the heat produced by welding larger studs.

The DA 3A is often used with 2000E systems, the DA 2A is more suitable for the 1200E system, and the 1600E controller is suited to both.

Hi-Lift Drawn Arc Stud Welding Guns

Hi-Lift Drawn Arc Stud Welding Guns

Our high lift drawn arc stud welding guns are the DA4, DA5 and DA6 Hi-Lift guns. As with the previous tools, these guns vary in cable thickness depending on the diameter of the drawn arc studs you are welding. The DA4 gun has a 70mm² thick cable and can weld stud diameters of up to 19mm; for studs of up to 25mm in diameter, the DA5 is the optimal choice with its 95mm² cable.

We have designed the DA6 for speed instead of stud diameter concerns; this powerful gun exceeds welding 1 stud every 6 seconds, making it highly viable for clients with large workloads.

Short Cycle Stud Welding Guns

We have also developed stud welding guns which are suitable for the short cycle stud welding process, which can utilise drawn arc or threaded capacitor discharge weld studs depending on your requirements. Short cycle stud welding is quicker and more cost-effective than drawn arc when welding on parent materials under 2mm thickness. These guns are a great choice for companies with a variety of stud welding applications where drawn arc and short cycle processes can be applied.
