Five S.T.A.T. steps to reducing your welding costs:

  1. Analyze

    We measure wire feed speed, current, electrode stick-out, voltage, travel speeds and all other variables at every welding station. We also take note of material thickness, joint configuration and fit-up. Then we determine your current efficiency and whether improvements can be made.

  2. Test

    Making suggestions isn’t good enough. So we test our recommendations in your shop to determine if they make a measurable improvement in the process. All parameters in step one are recorded again and compared. Once we see progress, we calculate the savings you can expect from the process improvements.

  3. Implement

    We provide written welding procedures for your operations, spelling out all the parameters that need to be closely watched. We bring these procedures into the shop and work with each welder to make sure they follow them properly.

  4. Train

    To ensure optimum efficiency and long-term savings, we work in small groups with supervisors and welders, reinforcing their understanding of the process and educating them on troubleshooting and problem solving. Training begins on the shop floor and continues in the classroom.

  5. Save

    When the program is complete, you’ll notice increased travel speeds, reduced or eliminated cleanup and grinding, and other efficiencies. As you become familiar with the procedures, you can determine which ones to use for new jobs. With S.T.A.T. you’ll lower your production costs while raising the quality of your product.
