Houston (PRWEB) July 30, 2008
While consumers are feeling the heat of high gas prices at the pump this summer, so are major companies that use diesel fuel as a power source for portable equipment at construction, industrial and manufacturing sites.
To help combat high fuel costs, a Houston company is offering a new of line of stud welding equipment that uses half the power. Houston based Sunbelt Stud Welding announces a line of stud welding systems that come with a portable and lightweight power source.
The welding units use "inverter technology" which provides a consistent energy input unlike the standard rectifier system most stud welding products use. As a result, the welding unit requires half the power. With today's current fuel costs, companies can save from $200 to $500 a day, based on an eight hour day by using the new stud welding product.
Stud welding is widely used in the construction, automotive, aerospace, marine, oil rig and industrial industries. Stud welding is a welding process in which a fastener can be end-joined to a metal piece instantaneously. It is a complete fastening system, using a wide variety of fasteners with literally hundreds of uses.
According to Sunbelt president Eric Ford, the new inverter stud welding products are the result of more than five years of development and research. "Talking to consumers and our customers we realized the need to find a solution to the high costs of diesel generators that power our products." says Ford. "The solution was to supply a welder power source as well as an associated, purpose designed stud gun".
Not only does the new unit cut down on fuel costs, but by using a consistent energy input, welders can achieve a better result and improved quality. In addition, the units are lightweight and portable.
