Construction Welding Requires Certain Materials When Welding on a Large Scale

Construction welding isn’t always pretty. In fact, in many cases, it’s best to put aesthetics aside and focus instead on the integrity and strength of each junction and fastening instead. But with the correct tools, even large-scale welding can look clean and stay strong. Northland Fastening Systems (NFS) offers fastening solutions for builds of all sizes, and has the powerful tools you need to make your construction welding project a success on all fronts.

Construction Welding

Construction welding is a complex project type because of the need for balance between short deadlines and strong welds. When safety and stability are a matter of life and death, you can’t cut corners—even on large-scale welding projects. In order to meld the best of both worlds, high-quality construction welding materials are paramount.

Construction Welding for Foundations and Frameworks

As the foundation and framework of the build is put into place, the first welds are just as important as the final welds. Equipment has to be in good condition throughout, and any and all welding accessories must be consistent in quality, size, and shape. In order to ensure that all of these are true simultaneously, it’s important to partner with a fastening team that takes every step of the welding process seriously.

Large-Scale Welding

NFS provides large-scale welding supplies, support, and state-of-the-art technology for your welding projects. This includes everything from ARC and capacitor (CD) welding machines, Automated tools, stud welding guns, and more. If your build requires specialized tools in order to guarantee that the final product will be safe, our team can work with you to find the materials you need.


Regardless of whether your construction welding project is for a commercial building or a military facility, we can help. Steel beams, support walls, columns, and anything else you’re welding together is best supported with customized and high-performance tools. Large-scale construction can be taxing, but with the right tools, your team can make it to the end and with a final product that your clients can rely on.

NFS is available for large-scale welding consultations or construction welding equipment rentals year-round. Project managers and professional welders can reach out at (651) 730-7770 or visit our website.



Selecting Stud Welding Products to Suit Every Job

Stud welders are powerful tools in projects that benefit from high-speed precision, also known as most welding projects. But choosing a stud welder that is best suited to your needs requires some careful consideration At Northland Fastening Systems (NFS), we offer stud welding products suited for capacitor discharge (CD), ARC, and automatic welding needs. Understanding the applications and benefits of each will help you pick the right stud welder every time.

Stud Welding Products

CD stud welders work by storing energy that is then discharged onto the surface of the weld materials, fusing them. Mild steel, stainless steel, and other metals such as brass and copper are all well suited to this type of tool. They also do not require any gas and work well on thinly gauged metals. But if your project isn’t well suited to CD stud welding products, other tools may be a better choice.

ARC Stud Welding Products

ARC stud welders, for instance, have wide application in the world of welding. When people hear about stud welders on large industrial projects, they often picture ARC welding tools. While both have a wide range of applicability, ARC welding is better suited for thicker materials. Named for the “arc” that occurs when the fastener is lifted into place above the molten metal, this process is especially popular in rough, large builds that don’t necessarily require aesthetic finesse.

And if you’re in need of modern automation for your project, automatic stud welders may be the ones you’re looking for. These products use computer numeric control (CNC) machining to control your welds and are an excellent option for repetitive and highly precise welding needs.


From manual stud welding products to automated, NFS can work with you to determine which tools you need on your belt this coming season. Project managers and welding professionals can contact us today at (651) 730-7770 or visit our website for more information on our stud welding products. NFS has welding solutions for every project and a team that is eager to work with you in order to fulfill your project to and beyond specifications.



Correct Welding Gear Can Maximize Your Weld Consistency

A weld is only as good as its smallest parts, and at Northland Fastening Systems (NFS), we work to ensure that all of our welding accessories are the highest quality possible, regardless of size. We understand that expert welding needs expert welding gear, and our supplies can match the dimensions and needs of any upcoming projects.

Welding Gear

Good gear comes down to whether or not it performs to expectations with every single weld. It’s not about the bells and whistles or the cutting edge as much as it’s about stability and reliability. Regardless of the type of gun you’re using, or if you’re doing manual or automatic feeding, the components should be exactly what you expect for each individual weld from the start of the project to the end.

Supplier of Gear

Finding a reliable supplier of welding accessories means finding a company that prioritizes quality and consistency in equal measure. Pins, studs, cables, and foot plates are all simple on the surface, but need to live up to your expectations. At NFS, we provide welding gear and a wide collection of welding accessories so that you have what you need for a clean weld every time.

Once you have reliable welding accessories in your toolbox, it’s time to fill it with tools. Welding gear such as stud welders, grinders, and other automated tool options serve your projects best when they’re high quality, available when you need it, and in excellent working condition. For all of your welding gear and welding accessory needs, NFS has your team’s back.


Project managers and industry leaders can reach NFS at (651) 730-7770 or by visiting our website today to find out more about our welding gear and welding accessories available for rent or purchase. You’ll never find yourself missing pieces with NFS on your side. Call today to get your projects started.
