Stud Delivery

Stud Delivery

With our stud delivery process, an ironworker simply puts the box of studs on top of the cart and feeds the stud chute while the other ironworker is operating the stud gun. Our two man system is designed for ironworkers to begin welding immediately after the deck is prepared. One man moves the cart, places ferrules with the ferrule master, and loads studs into the stud chute while the other welds studs from the standing position. Both ironworkers can work primarily from the standing position with almost no heavy lifting. With this system, we’ve eliminated the need for ironworkers to spend time (sometimes hours) slowly placing ferrules and studs throughout the job site.
