The world of welding is vast. Consequently, all welding methods are not created equal. One superior option is a stud welding system. Stud welding is an efficient process in which a stud is affixed to a metal piece and heated with a weld arc, basically making the metal piece and the stud one. If you haven't considered this option for your business, here are just three reasons why you should think again.
Relying on a stud welding system can also be more cost-effective than other methods. Traditional welding is an involved and often time-consuming process. Combined, these two factors typically result in increased costs. Stud welding systems reduce both the amount of work involved and the time it takes to complete a welding project, resulting in reduced labor expenses. The lower your labor costs, the lower your overall operating costs.
In addition to lower labor costs--since the stud system takes much of the guesswork out of the process--a welder doesn't necessarily need to have an extremely high skill-set to operate. When you don't have to hire the most highly trained workers, you can also save money.
Another benefit stud welding systems offer is that they can be used with various applications, offering increased versatility. With traditional welding, you are somewhat in a box. Not only do you need a host of different tools, you also need a host of different skills.
A welding system can be used to maintain fireproofing, wire looms, machine guards, insulation and a host of other applications. More importantly, it doesn't require varied skill levels. When you can get more use out of your tools and equipment, this is more beneficial to not just cost, but also productivity levels.
A stud welding system can also increase the strength and durability of your welded fixtures. The primary reason for this is that the weld system offers a more precise weld. The more accurately the two joints are welded together, the greater the strength or integrity of the finished product. A somewhat common problem is poor stud placement.
If the stud is not placed correctly, this can leave a small gap around the joints. Even a small gap can cause issues because it decreases weld's strength. With a stud system, much of the placement is done for you. The result is stronger welds with increased durability and longevity.
When it comes to business, efficiency is most important. A stud welding system can bring a higher level of efficiency to your organization.
