Why Stud Welding Wins Contracts
In this age of worldwide competition and razor thin margins, you need every advantage to complete your contracts as quickly and profitably as possible. There are many reasons why industrial services get held up or experience cost increases, but delays or errors in welding services need not be one of them. Stud welding offers the speed, reliability and affordability you can count on to finish your project in a timely manner.
Why Does Stud Welding Win Contracts
Stud welding wins contacts because it’s an efficient process that helps improve productivity. In addition to improved productivity, stud welding itself is a quick process that is safer than traditional welding because there is no risk of hot metal splattering. Learn more about why stud welding wins more contracts below.
It Is Incredibly Efficient
Stud welds can be used on any number of surfaces. Stud welding ensures a strong, tight bond that will not break, regardless of the conditions to which it is exposed, which is why it is frequently employed in the cookware, marine, construction and aerospace industries. Digital stud welding technology further improves its efficiency by eliminating time and materials waste and ensuring an accurate, fast and secure bond every time.
It Improves Productivity
Stud welding is done at a high speed, so it saves hours off traditional welding methods, such as drilling and tapping, resistance welding or clinch fastening. By eliminating the time and effort needed to predrill, punch holes or set rivets, stud welding accomplishes the same function in a fraction of the time.
It Is Flexible And Adaptable
Stud welding is great for making last-minute adjustments to any project. Without the need to drill more holes or manipulate materials to accommodate the welding process, small changes can be made without affecting any other aspect of the project.
It Promotes Operator Safety
With no splatter, stud welding keeps operators safe. Other welding techniques require exposure to liquid metals. The heat generated by those molten metals causes severe burns when it hits human tissue. It can also cause damage to the surface of the project. During drawn arc stud welding, a ceramic shield protects the molten metals from splattering on the operator or the project. No splatter equals no injuries or ruined project finishes.
These sophisticated welding devices are also designed to be ergonomic, lightweight and easy to handle making them safer overall.
It Gets Rid Of The Guesswork
There are two models of stud welding equipment, Drawn arc and Capacitor Discharge (CD) welding. Both offer weld settings that adjust quickly and easily, requiring no additional tools. Both also offer the same result: a tight, clean, almost instantaneous bond between the stud and the base metal.
Stud welding can be performed on stainless steel, aluminum, carbon steel or brass materials and secures a clean, reliable connection.
How Can My Manufacturing Operation Implement Stud Welding?
Stud welding is a very flexible, safe, and efficient process. This makes it easy to implement in a variety of manufacturing operations. Due to the flexibility of stud welding, it can be applied to manufacturing projects of any size and duration, whether recurring or not.
Outsourced Engineering Support
Outsourced engineering support contracts can be won by stud welding because stud welding engineers have a deep knowledge of techniques and processes that can be difficult to come by. They can help with inspections, performance, technique, and testing to help any business maximize the productivity and efficiency of their welding operations.
Contract Assembly Services
With contract assembly projects, there is a long list of moving parts and to-do’s that can be daunting to manage on your own. This is where a stud welding contract comes into play. When hiring a stud welding company for support they will ensure you have a well-thought-out and thorough plan in place.
The following example perfectly illustrates why stud welding can help win contract assembly projects. Image Industries worked with a client that had been manufacturing an assembly in-house for quite some time, but was rejecting nearly half their parts. The assembly required exacting measurements of within 0.002 of an inch, virtually no weld spatter was tolerable despite 85% of the surface needing bonding and, finally, the weld stud was 7/16" diameter stainless steel. A stud that size is a good fit for Drawn Arc stud welding. As a result of these stringent requirements, costs were high and their production simply could not keep up with demand.
Image Industries’ stud welding team was able to design and build custom pieces of stud welding equipment to meet the volume, location tolerance, and stud size requirements and develop a welding technique to reduce weld spatter to virtually zero. This resulted in our assembled product producing less than 2% scrap, satisfying all delivery requirements, and using less budget than doing the job in-house.
Other Stud Welding Services
Other stud welding services such as customized weld studs and products can be used to win many manufacturing contracts. At Image Industries all you need to do is tell us the outcomes you want to achieve, and we will provide the components to get the job done.
