Welding is of many different types and each of them has its own plus and minus. It depends on the project type for which the welding is done. Stud welding is one form of welding that offers numerous benefits due to its high-speed operation which takes only milliseconds. Major applications of stud welding are in automotive, cookware, marine, construction, aerospace and industrial products. Stud welding is the process where a stud is attached to a metal work piece. During the process, the stud is placed on the metal base while the weld arc gets melted and joins the stud and the metal base. The stud is placed on molten metal until it becomes hard.
It’s a regular requirement to attach studs to metal sheets for various applications in manufacturing. When you look for the best option for that, stud welding is always considered an excellent way. This is because of the advantages stud welding has in comparison to other methods. Let’s check into the various benefits of stud welding for increasing productivity as well as quality in the job.
When talking about strength, the weld will have much higher strength than the metal workpiece or the stud. This means the welds created through the stud welding process will last for a longer time than the end product. This is beneficial for the end product to be more durable because of the joints created.
Not all types of welding have the capability to join together two items easily or in a very short time. Unlike other welding, stud welding helps attach fasteners and the parent material instantly. Also, to connect the stud on to a thin metal sheet, there is hardly any great effort required and can be achieved at a great speed. This will help you save time and thereby increase productivity.
The welding job is not always economical, especially in long-term projects or those that consist of costly materials. With the advent of stud welding, there is little to zero maintenance cost. On the other hand, operating a stud welding machine is easy and requires very little time. Utilizing less-skilled welders will help you save on your hourly costs as well.
Some welding types are infamous for the weld splattering that occurs. For example, in the case of MIG welding, it’s common for welders to experience splattering even in excess. In the case of stud welding, weld splattering does not occur because the arc and the weld zone are covered by a ceramic shield.
Welding splatters usually consist of hot metal that could be dangerous if it comes into contact with the eyes or skin. This is why welders are required to use protective gear. Also, there are chances that the weld splatter could damage the materials that stay close to the workspace. The splatters have the capacity to ruin the end product completely. If the damage that occurred to the product is recoverable, the welder has to put extra time and work into it, which will ultimately cost more money. In the case of products that are not recoverable, more money and time get wasted. This is how the non-splatter stud welding process helps you achieve lower costs and operator hours.
Stud welding can be used in diverse applications like machine guards, fireproof material, fixing airlines, handles, wiring looms, insulation, and much more. In scenarios where there is zero access to the backside of the assembly, stud welding only requires one-side access, eliminating the risk of not being able to weld properly. Examples of such scenarios include welding certain instruments, rails, and earth points.
Stud welding being a smokeless and splatterless welding process, it’s safe to be used on painted as well as pre-coated items. Also, it allows quick and clean welding and can be used on a variety of projects.
Since there are a lot of advantages in increasing the productivity and quality of welding, it’s always wise to choose stud welding whenever possible. Stud welding machines come in various models, and each model has its own functionality. This is where the advantage of renting a stud welding machine comes from. When you rent, you get the latest model machine that suits your requirements, and you get payment terms according to your convenience. YES Automation, UAE is well known for its latest models of stud welding machines from Germany available for rent.
