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 alloys, brass studs and components. The stud welders can work with a range of fasteners including weld studs, pins, nails, and earth tags.


The Taylor Stud Welding systems that Dickinson Industrial Products (Pty) Ltd distributes are generally classified as follows:

  • Drawn Arc (DA) stud welding: 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.

  • Capacitor Discharge (CD) stud welding: 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.


Stud Welding provides 3 primary advantages:

  • Tremendous time and cost savings through elimination of drilling, punching, threading, gluing, riveting, screwing or finishing.

  • Greater flexibility in design and usage through the studs high strength and ability to be applied on very thin plates and platforms with limited or only one sided access.

  • Unsurpassed economy through high levels of automation, fast weld rates and low price for standard studs.
