As the father of an autistic child, I have been faced with more than a few necessary home modifications projects. Unfortunately, with the high cost of raising a special needs child and my wife's decision to stay home and raise our son, there simply was no room in our budget to hire a contractor to complete these projects for us. Each weekend for nearly a year, I would pick a project to work on. This past month, I finally finished every project on my list. After learning more than I thought I would ever know about home construction and repair, I have a new found appreciation for the skills of general and specialty contractors. That is why I decided to start this blog to pay tribute to the job these contractors do, and help to empower more homeowners to take on the role of a contractor in their home.
Welding — whether you do it onsite or if you outsource the job to a machine shop — can be quite expensive. However, there are ways to keep costs low, and one involves using stud welding versus other types of welding. These are a few reasons why stud welding saves money over other types of welding.
1. It's Versatile
Some types of welding machines can only be used for certain jobs. For example, bigger machines can generally only be kept stationary, which means that you might not be able to handle small jobs with it. The good thing about a stud welding machine is the fact that it can be used for all sorts of purposes. Stud welding can be used on bigger jobs, but a stud welder is also easy to transport and can be used to work in small, tight spaces as well. This means that instead of having to buy multiple types of welding machines to make sure that you are ready for any job that might come your way, you can purchase a stud welding machine and use it for lots of things. Not only does this save you money on the purchase of the machinery itself, but it can save you money on maintenance, too.
2. It's Not as Time Consuming
Another thing that you have to think about is the amount of time that it takes to perform most welding tasks. Stud welding allows you to attach the item to the parent material very quickly. Plus, the machinery can be moved around more quickly and easily, meaning that there is less manpower required. This means that you don't have to worry about paying for as many man hours for basic welding jobs, which can save you money on payroll or on outsourcing.
3. It Doesn't Have as Much Waste
Wasted weld splatter doesn't just look unsightly on welded items, but it can be costly, too. Weld splatter is a real problem with many types of welding, but it's not something that you have to worry about with stud welding. This can help you both save money and make sure that your products look their best when they are completed, too.
As you can see, stud welding is a type of welding that can actually help you save a lot of money when compared to other types of welding. Plus, along with saving you money, stud welding can have other benefits for you to enjoy, too. If you haven't thought about giving it a try for your business yet, these are a few of many reasons why you might want to opt for stud welding for all of your welding needs.Share
