Since its implementation in the early 1930's, stud welding has been saving the manufacturing and rigging sectors time and money. Stud welding is the process of fastening a metal stud to another metal object. It has proven to be faster and more effective than traditional welding. The benefits of stud welding have been evidenced in a wide array of industries including automotive, shipbuilding, construction, and offshore rigging. Stud welding has been especially beneficial to the oil industry and is used regularly in upstream, downstream and offshore oil production.
Most offshore oil applications utilize stud welding for attaching their electrical cables to the platforms and rigs. This allows for the electrical wiring to be installed in a safe, clean manner. The Sunbelt SS-316 fastener is designed to mount cables with ty-rap or banding strap. This gives each cable its own slot and prevents them from becoming entangled with one another. Therefore, if a cable is malfunctioning or needs to be replaced, it is easier to identify the cable and separate it from the bunch. When installing electrical wiring on an offshore rig, both upstream and downstream oil production companies use stud welding to streamline the process.
The cost efficiency stud welding offers to upstream, downstream and offshore oil production has made it an obvious choice for many years. The stud welding process is fast, easy, and permanent. When you use a stud welder to instantly secure a fastener to a metal object, you can rest assured that the fastener will hold in place permanently. Offshore oil rig workers have found this speed, precision, and durability to be extremely helpful in day to day applications.
