CHALLENGE: When a scaffolding manufacturer wanted to simplify production while improving the safety and reliability of its product, the company contacted Quality Steel Treating for advice. Because of the location and type of joint on its scaffolding, welding the assembly proved to be costly, time-consuming and unreliable. Quality Steel Treating suggested switching to brazing instead of welding and recommended a specific alloy to strengthen the joint.
SOLUTION: “We’ve been able to shorten our assembly time while actually improving the safety and reliability of our product,” said the manufacturer. “Thanks to Quality, I’m pleased to say our scaffolding is stronger and more reliable than ever.”
