Since the industrial revolution, society had depended on stud welding; yet stud welding remains relatively overlooked. The process of attaching a metal fastener to another metal part, or stud welding, is an important step in constructing several of the everyday products we depend on! Sunbelt Stud Welding provides stud welding equipment for companies around the globe. The following is a list of industries that depend on stud welding products.
Transportation - Stud welding is absolutely necessary when building large ships. Liners, cargo carriers, battleships, and even submarines require stud welding equipment to create hangers. These hangers allow for quick and space efficient storage. Moreover, stud welding is particularly convenient in situations where drilling holes for screws may be detrimental to the integrity of the vessel. Why open yourself up to a leak when you can use a weld stud!
Kitchen Appliances - When is the last time you thought “I need to screw my microwave back together?” The answer should be “Never,” because the majority of kitchen appliances, such as ovens, stove tops, kitchen hoods, sinks, microwaves, and toasters are assembled with stud welding products. The biggest aesthetic advantage to stud welding is the sleek look you get with stainless steel appliances: no bumpy fasteners.
Lighting - Stud welding supplies are used to create ornate and modern lamps. Even simple lighting fixtures require stud welds to hang them up just where you need them.
Construction - Weld studs are an absolute necessity on a construction site. Stud welding equipment creates the bonds that maintain the infrastructure of all buildings.
Bridges- The road on a bridge is made of concrete slabs, which expand in the heat and contract in cold temperatures. Concrete anchor weld studs keep the metal expansion joints, which sustain the shape and integrity of the bridge, attached to the concrete slabs. Thanks to stud welding equipment, we are able to drive across large bodies of water in no time.
