Without welding much of the modern world would simply fall apart or never come together in the first place. Welding is essential to a vast array of industries that would undoubtedly fold without it. That includes ship building, bicycle manufacturing, skyscraper construction and auto manufacturing. Even appliances, exercise equipment and satellites count on welding to hold them together. But when are you likely to actually require the aid of a mobile welder?
Some Practical uses for Mobile Welding
While the value of welding as a whole cannot be disputed there are those who wonder why anyone would ever need on-site welding services. The fact is however that mobile welding is a fast growing industry precisely because there is such demand for it. Those who require the services of a mobile welder fall into many categories and include:
- Construction companies – Heavy equipment like earth movers, backhoes and front end loaders are often pushed to the max and sometimes beyond. It’s not unusual for them to crack under the strain and require a fast, onsite fix. When the alternative is to shut down the job site being able to enlist the services of a mobile welder to get things back up and running fast is the smart, cost effective call.
- Marinas and boat owners – In the aftermath of intense storms marinas often find themselves facing damage to their docks, trailers, fencing and more. Because it’s not practical (and in some cases not possible) to bring these items to a welding shop, the welding shop must go to the marina. Without effective on-site welding services to call on many marinas would be in a very tough spot following heavy weather events.
- Homeowners – Accidents happen and sometimes the wrought iron gate will be damaged by contact with the car or the railing on the deck will be damaged by a falling branch during a heavy weather event. If you didn’t have a mobile welder to call upon you’d have to take the damaged fence or railing apart and lug it over to the welding shop and then have someone re-install it afterward.
- Vacationers – Yes, believe it or not even the family on vacation may at some point need the services of a mobile welder in order to keep their adventure on track. All it takes is one unfortunate encounter with a road hazard to cause damage to the trailer hauling the boat or other family possessions. Without the aid of a mobile welder they could be stranded and their holiday brought to a screeching halt.
