Welding the Schuette Way
We're always improving our welding process by requiring all new hires to complete Schuette's Welding Academy.
Run by our full-time certified welding inspector, the academy is required for all new hires regardless of their training or certifications. This training protects new hires from starting from scratch on a production line. The Welding Academy ensures our new hires welding meets our high-quality standard.
The academy also provides continuous training and advancements for our employees.
Our welding departments work on a variety of alloys and thickness. We have:
- 25 Stations w/ over 35,000 sq. ft. Manual Welding Area
- Weld Processes Include GMAW, FCAW, GTAW, SMAW and SAW.
- Welders are Qualified to AWS D1.1.
- Schuette Welding Academy Training On-Site. (2) CWIs Staffed
- (8) Robotic Welding Cells
- 6-axis Lincoln/Fanuc w/Dual Head/Tail Secondary Axis up to 120” × 60” Weldment Size
Stud & Spot Welding
- Midwest Fasteners Ultra ARC UA1800 Taylor P3-18-150
Schuette Metals is one of the founding members of the Central Wisconsin Metal Manufactures Alliance (CWIMMA).
Founded in 2016, CWIMMA is a non-profit organization to increase educational and career awareness in welding, fabricating, machining, and manufacturing trades.
It's essential highlighting to our future welders and fabricators what's available after high school. Schuette is committed to educating the next generation.
Each year, the organization holds a welding competition for area high school students using virtual reality. The over 60 CWIMMA members contribute over $30,000 in scholarship and thousands of dollars of prizes awarded at the annual banquet.
Do You Know How Robotic Welding Improves Manufacturing?
Robotic welding evolved into a mainstay in manufacturing. Benefits range from increased production to quality and helping us to transition to Industry 4.0.
How Will Welding Technology Evolve with the IoT?
Iot in welding is a long way from the Bronze Age when people hammered two pieces of copper together. Now, there are times when people aren't really needed.
Training Within Industry: Its History and Benefits
A practical Training Within Industry program improves quality, reduces errors, cuts hours of labor and is an important piece of Lean Practices.
Welding: Its Journey from the Iron Age to Now
It may seem like it's only been around for 100 years, welding traces its lineage to the Iron Age.
Prometheus's Gift of Fire led to Forge Welding
The Greek Titan Prometheus brought fire to mankind, giving mankind heat, hot food, and Forge Welding to make the tools needed to survive.
The Advent of Gas Welding Advanced Welding Importance
Welding with gas became the first step away from forge welding. However, it appeared just in time to help shipbuilders during World War One.
Resistance Welding: An Accidental Discovery Helping Manufacturing
Copper wires that accidentally fused before a lecture over 100 years ago was the seed that grew resistance welding.
Introducing the 4 Most Common Arc Welding Methods
The last leg of our welding journey is arc welding. There are many variations using an arc, but we're only writing about the four most common methods.
One Of The Most Popular Welding Methods Without Compromise: FCAW
Flux-core arc welding is widely used in construction because of its portability, flexibility, and high welding speed: producing high-quality welds.
Is MIG Welding Accepted as Being the Backbone of Welding?
MIG welding simplifies the process, making it easy to learn how to do it. Its streamlined approach increases productivity while retaining quality welds.
Need Absolutely Beautiful Welds? Take A Long Look At TIG Welding
TIG Welding provides beautiful results because of its versatility. However, the learning curve is steep, and it's an expensive process when starting out.
What Welding Method Is A Simple Process, But Difficult To Learn? Stick Welding
Production speed is slower, and the results may not be as pretty as TIG welding, but SMAW remains one of the most popular arc welding methods.
