Stud welding for furniture grows as demand for metal home furnishings increases and manufacturers improve production techniques to meet household market needs.

Welding has long been used to produce office and industrial furniture such as desks, cabinets, racks, shelving and patio items but increasingly it is making its way into the home furnishing market as trends towards urban or industrial styles have grown. While welding has proven an effective method of fastening metal items together and manufacturing a piece of furniture, the inconsistency and production slowness have created obstacles to boosting volumes with repeatable quality and standards.

Stud welding, both arc and cd such as you'll find at Sunbelt Stud Welding, using studs has provided an economical answer. Unlike other methods of joining metal, stud welding needs to only be fastened from one side. That alone makes it a more desirable method. When things like standardization of welds and bond stability (stud welds are stronger than the metal being welded) are added the choice becomes clear.

Stud welding gives furniture and other manufacturers a durable, dependable and repeatable weld, particularly when automated or production welders such as the MPW Series, IPC 90 or CPW Series welders from Sunbelt Stud Welding are used. Production costs are lowered while standards and quality are increased.

Sunbelt Stud Welding offers a vast assortment of ARC, CD, aluminum, refractory and military grade weld studs, proven in real world applications to meet any production needs. Plus the company is willing and capable of creating specialty studs for unique situations.

Stud welding for furniture grows as demand for metal home furnishings increases but as manufacturers of other house ware and industrial manufacturers are discovering, it"s simply the best, fastest and most versatile way to affix or join other items as well. Fads may come and go but the benefits of stud welding remain constant. If you’d like to discuss your welding needs and how Sunbelt Stud Welding can help you meet them, give us a call 1-800-462-9353.
