Now you can place state-of-the-art micro welders in your program for next to nothing. Your program wins. Your students win. Micro welding technology wins.

The Sunstone Welding Education Program benefits your program in three ways:

  1. Provides the latest micro welders at micro budget pricing.
  2. Maintains, protects, and replaces all equipment when necessary.
  3. Helps facilitate an annual “discovery day” at no additional cost to you.

In a nutshell, the Sunstone Welding Education Program is a windfall for your organization!

Program Equipment Placement

Through the Sunstone Welding Education Program, and only for organizations that qualify and are accepted into the program, your organization is able to place all necessary equipment within your facilities and pay only a small monthly subscription for each welder. The amount of the monthly subscription differs based on the value of the welder you need. Subscription pricing is only $15/month per welder plus a small, fully refundable deposit based on the welder you want to place. See the pricing table below:

The subscription also protects ever welder you place in your program, which is a key benefit for your organization. And here’s why: For as long as you remain subscribed, Sunstone will warrant and maintain every welder. You never have to find additional funds to repair a defective welder that may be out of warranty. With this program, the warranty never expires. Further, in the case of a defective welder, Sunstone may opt to replace an older welder with the latest model, helping you to keep your program up-to-date.

Are there disclaimers associated with the program? Absolutely. For example, if you or one of your students damage a welder, that wouldn’t be covered by the program. You should carefully read the Terms of Service.

To be clear, with this program, your organization is able to receive all the micro welders necessary to equip your program with a small, monthly subscription. Sunstone maintains ownership of the equipment. Should you discontinue the program and return the welder, the deposit will be refunded. If your organization defaults on the subscription, Sunstone will retain the deposit and will arrange to have the equipment returned. Your organization must agree to a 12-month term.

For most organizations, avoiding a large, upfront payment to acquire equipment is a tremendous benefit to your program and your students. With this program you can build a program that will rival any in the country at a fraction of the cost.

Annual “Discovery Day”

The Sunstone Welder Education Program is designed to be a win-win-win opportunity. Your organization wins by gaining access to world-class welding technology and building a phenomenal program. Your students win by fully developing their craftsmanship by using the best equipment available. Sunstone wins by having its brand exposed to your students and community.

An annual “discovery day” builds upon the program’s win-win-win objective. Every year, at a time convenient to you, Sunstone will help your organization with an event to showcase your program, your student’s art, and the Sunstone brand. Sunstone recommends “Micro Welding Discovery Day” be part of the event name. You may wish to add the name of your organization to the beginning; “State College Micro Welding Discovery Day” as an example.

The event agenda may include lecture and hands-on training by a visiting artist or representative from Sunstone, lunch provided by Sunstone (we’ll have pizza or sandwiches delivered!), awards presented by your organization and Sunstone for outstanding student accomplishments (Sunstone may provide prizes for contest winners or showcase pieces), and a special VIP breakfast hosted and provided by Sunstone for faculty and students recommend by you (up to 10 persons). Sunstone will also provide promotional items (hats, shirts, bags, etc.).

Sunstone suggests you use the event to showcase your program. Alumni and  students from high schools or other organizations may be invited to attend. Having local press cover the event will generate community attention that may attract future students and other opportunities.

Building More Awareness for Your Program

In addition to the annual “discover day,” and in line with your organization’s current applicable policies, Sunstone asks that your organization uses social media on a monthly basis to showcase student and program accomplishments through the use of Sunstone equipment.

Further, Sunstone asks your organization to create a special video that promotes your program’s acquisition of the latest micro welding technology. The video should be focused on your program and be useful as a recruiting tool. Sunstone requests that its equipment be included in literature and video featuring your organizations program. Students should also have opportunity to subscribe to Micro Welding Today magazine, a free publication supported by Sunstone.

A full list of your organization’s obligations for participating in the program can be found in the Terms of Service.
