How We Can Help
Elrod Stud Welding offers a wide variety of services to assist companies with their needs on the job site. We can provide help in the following areas.
Jobsite Services for Steel Erectors
Industrial welding applications have undergone a lot of changes over the years. Thanks to the availability of new technology, today’s projects have a superior level of customization. We use a variety of techniques and equipment to tackle a diverse array of commercial and large-scale projects.
One of the most popular services we offer is the installation of thru decking. We use a variety of quality practices to assure the best results in the installation of a weld-thru deck job. Some of our procedures include:
- Attention to detail. The smallest details could affect the outcome of an entire weld job. For example, the top flange of the beam requires special attention — all welded beams should have no paint, rust, mill scale, dirt, or moisture. Prepping the beams helps establish the integrity of the weld and assures it will stay in place for years to come.
- Appropriate placement. To preserve the long-lasting integrity of a welded bean, appropriate deck placement is essential. Additionally, the decking should receive a thorough cleaning before welding. If necessary, we blow dry each stud location to remove moisture and debris from the deck and beam flange before completing the weld to create the best outcome possible.
- Assuring proper operating requirements. The correct weld current is essential for thru-deck applications. We work to assure adequate primary power to create total consistency throughout the weld and maximize the longevity of your project.
Tool Rental for Steel Erectors
Elrod Stud Welding is also the best place to rent all the tools for your steel erecting project. When your commercial build requires a Stud Welding Genset, we have the best equipment for your unique needs and budget.
Any tool rental with us begins with a free quote. We want your project to be a success, so we spend a little time learning about your needs and the best equipment for the job. Proper welding applications require an adequate and steady stream of power, which we can also assist with. We find the best possible model for your needs depending on the volume of studs, the need for mobile power, and more.
We’re uniquely equipped to handle your rental needs because we use this equipment on job sites all the time. When you want to do the work yourself, let us equip you with all the tools you need to be successful.
Services for Steel Fabricators
If you’re a steel fabricating company and need help shooting studs into embed plates, Elrod Stud Welding is here to help. Embed plates are commonly used in tilt-up wall construction, pre-cast engineering applications, and other projects involving concrete structures. To shoot a stud into an embed plate, we generally weld deformed bar anchors, headed shear studs, or concrete anchors into one side of a plate, which gets embedded into concrete. Once the concrete forms and dries, the resulting angle allows a weld point to create load-bearing connections.
Creating embed plates is something we can do effectively within your own shop for use on your job site. We’re capable of handling a high volume of projects with a superior level of customization, depending on your unique needs.
If you need additional assistance, we can also install studs in the field for steel fabricators. At Elrod Stud Welding, we’re committed to delivering a superior level of customer service and can rise to meet all your production and fabrication challenges.
Services for General Contractors
We offer an array of services to general contractors working on smaller jobs. Stud welding requires specific expertise and knowledge of general best practices to assure job quality and structural integrity. We offer both to our general contractor customers. As a full-service facility for the welding and installation of structural steel, we are capable of handling applications for a variety of highly specialized industries, as well as smaller scale projects. We have the experience and equipment necessary to effectively manage all your welding tasks.
