Meet Jane Evans

During college, I lived in a small, old house. My roommates and I loved it's cozy charm and, for the most part, didn't have any problems. However, one day, we noticed that the carpet in one of the bedrooms was wet--and it couldn't be dried. When we called our landlady and the repairman, they discovered that the shower not only needed to be re-caulked, but there was mold everywhere under the carpet. We had to move out for two weeks while they fixed the problem. Soon, thanks to the contractor (the likes of whom you can read about), we were back at home.

Questions To Ask Yourself Before Committing To Stud Welding

Stud welding is one of the many different choices that you have with regards to welding methods. It tends to require more equipment and can need more specialized training to handle the equipment, however. You might be considering stud welding as a possibility for your product, but not know if it is going to be worth the cost to your company. Here are some questions to ask yourself to find out if stud welding is the best technique for your situation. 

1. Is speed an issue with regards to your production?

The first factor that you need to consider is how fast you need things to be welded. If you have a product that requires multiple welds and you are trying to push out as much product as possible in a short period of time, then you should absolutely consider stud welding. The reason for this is that the stud welding method is able to produce a solid, strong weld connection in a matter of milliseconds. This will help you push out a large number of properly connected products in a shorter period of time than other welding techniques would produce.

If you don't need constant, speedy production, then the extra costs and training required for stud welding might not be the most effective use of your money and time.

2. Is weld splatter going to be a problem?

Weld splatter is when the hot welding material splashes beyond its parameters during the welding procedure, which can result in the product being ruined or people around the area being injured. If you have a small factory where it is common to have people and other equipment in the welding arc, or if your product could be severely damaged by weld splatter, then you need to switch to stud welding because it doesn't have this problem.

If you have a product where weld splatter will not damage it or if you have a large factory where you can keep workers and other equipment out of the weld splatter zone, then stud welding might not be worth the initial cost of investment from your current welding method.

3. Do you have high maintenance costs that you currently cannot handle?

Finally, if you have high maintenance costs that you cannot currently handle with your profit levels, or if you are seeking to increase your profit margins, you might want to consider stud welding because after the initial investment, the maintenance costs tend to be relatively low, partially due to the lack of weld splatter.

For more information, talk to a company that specializes in stud welding.
