Meet nexAir S.T.A.T. Our Strategic & Tactical Assessment Team.
Do you know how much over-welding, spatter, improper bead shape, and cleanup are costing your business? S.T.A.T. is here to help you find out. The nexAir Strategic & Tactical Assessment Team consists of gas specialists, welding specialists, mechanical engineers, Certified Welding Inspectors (CWI), and Certified Welding Educators (CWE) who will analyze your current processes to find you ways to be more productive, save time and save money.
Each S.T.A.T. is custom-assembled for each job. So you'll get experts who understand your work and the challenges you face to provide valuable insight and actionable recommendations.
Five S.T.A.T. steps to reducing your welding costs:
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
