How varied are your operations?

Some companies tend to have a steady workload in terms of variety. On the other hand, some firms see many types of work come in overtime. In the latter case, operators may have to adapt their equipment to suit the needs of their clients. In the first case, purchasing a stud welding machine is a great investment for continuous work that requires stud welding. On the other hand, when your operational requirements are liable to change then renting a machine from a dependable supplier can be the better choice.

Are you looking to subcontract for other companies?

A varied workload doesn’t always lend itself to hiring a machine as the best choice. You can also advertise your facilities as a viable option for clients who don’t always need stud welding in-house and instead subcontract the work to you. In this case, purchasing a stud welding machine can be a highly lucrative option.

Purchasing and hiring stud welding machines – when you might need both
