Whether you need a portable handheld CD stud welder or a heavy duty automated drawn arc welder, you can count on NFS as your one-stop shop for stud welding projects. For short-term projects, we offer a broad stud welder selection for rent, and for dedicated welding technicians, we have a wide range of high-quality welding units for sale.
One of our favorite drawn arc welding units for heavy-duty stud welding in a large-scale construction setting is the HBS IT 3002. This welding unit is a dual gun drawn arc welder with a stepless current range between 300 and 2600 A.
The IT 3002 has welding capabilities for stainless steel, mild steel, and aluminum with stud ranges up to 1″ diameters. Welding times with the IT 3002 are 5 to 1,500 msec, depending on the stud dimensions and surface materials.
Application abilities: The IT 3002 is a construction-grade welding unit capable of through-deck welding and other industrial applications. Its best applications include thick sheet metal welding (2 mm or thicker) and composite construction such as concrete anchors, shear connectors, and deck welding.
Weld variations: Welding with the IT 3002 means working with a ceramic ferrule and drawn arc processes. It is also possible to calibrate the unit for short cycle drawn arc welding, and shielding gas is a built in option.
Unit dimensions: Because the IT 3002 is a unit for construction-grade welding, it is on the heavier and larger side. The full unit weight is 352.7 lbs (160 kg) with the dimensions of 25.6″ x 22″ x 50.8″. Though the full unit is a bulky tool, it is relatively easy to move from site to site with wheel and handle attachments.
Additional features: Thanks to features such as a precision-based microcontroller, continuous internal system function monitoring, lift test capabilities, and fine-tune adjustment ability with the library/specification function, the IT 3002 is a highly effective, reliable unit for even the most rigorous industrial applications.
Safety: In addition to excellent quality and precision control during the welding operation, the IT 3002 has several built-in safety measures. These includes a mains filter that protects against voltage peak, making it optimal for large mains voltages on construction sites. Additional features include lock-out triggers, thermal monitoring, and temperature regulations.
Overall, the IT 3002 is a compact construction-grade unit that is mobile and easy to operate. To learn more about this unit and other stud welder units we offer, contact Northland Fastening Systems at (651) 730-7770. You can also request a quote online to get started with us today.
