The Many Applications of Structural Steel Welding

Structural steel welding sets itself apart from other welding areas largely due to its scale. In fact, structural steel welding is the literal backbone of modern industrial America. At Northland Fastening Systems (NFS), we provide the tools you need to make the structural welds that keep America running.

The Power of Big Industry

Structural steel welding is the process that makes our largest infrastructural ventures possible. Military equipment and facilities, aerospace materials and machines, factories and other heavy productive buildings are all reliant on high-quality structural welding. This means that, unlike smaller, more specialized weld projects, welding can be the difference between life and death. From carrying astronauts and soldiers to supporting our essential products and exports, structural welds keep the country going.

Because of the sheer scale of welding, welding equipment needs to scale up as well. Of course, this doesn’t mean implementing physically larger equipment—instead, you want to make sure that you’re scaling up your expectations of performance. Underperforming equipment, out-of-date welding guns, or faulty materials don’t make the cut in large industry weld projects. If your equipment isn’t up to snuff, or the weld isn’t up to code, the final build suffers as well.

Making Structural Steel Welding Possible

With all of this in mind, you need to have equipment that stands up to the pressure of welding. At NFS, we’re proud to provide state-of-the-art welding equipment for purchase or rent in order to supply our structural welders across the country. Power supplies, stud welding guns, weld pins, and delivery options to your work sites help you keep up with the fast-paced world of structural welds.

If you’re a structural welding professional in need of structural steel welding equipment, look no farther than NFS. Project managers and welders can call at (651) 730-7770 or visit our website to find more information.

Structural Steel Welding Can Be Both Strong and Aesthetic for Every Industry

Structural steel welding is the backbone of many high-impact industry projects, but regardless of the project in question, your structural welding should hold up under intense pressure and years of regular use. Ensuring that your welds are solid, subtle, and strong means using the right materials and applying consistent expertise to every joining. Northland Fastening Systems (NFS) has the tools and knowledge to help you complete any and every project request you receive.

Structural Welding: Strength

Structural steel welding provides high-strength fastening options for industries from military and aerospace to mining and manufacturing. The strength of your structural steel welding is essential not only for roll-out, but also in regards to longevity. Every single fastening you complete could be the difference between life and death, which means that strength is key.

Strong structural welding can be achieved with stick welding, arc welding, and stud welding. No matter which method you intend to use, NFS can offer logistical and practical support through every stage of the welding process.

Welding Aesthetics

Strength is the high priority for structural steel welding, but a comprehensively high-quality structural weld will also be consistent and aesthetically subtle. The best steel welds are unobtrusive and smooth. With poor-quality tools or inexperienced welders, structural welding can be marred by sharp edges, bulging lines, or simply ugly connections.

Though structural welding aesthetics seem to be unimportant in the grand scope of many large-scale products, keep in mind that the aesthetics aren’t just about beauty. A clean, consistent structural steel weld speaks to experience and attention to detail. With that in mind, our welding experts complete welds that are strong and aesthetically impressive. If your tools are struggling to live up to your own aesthetic standards, our team can help you find the materials and machinery you need to achieve high-quality welds with every structural project.

At NFS, our structural welding professionals provide hands-on support as well as welding planning and execution. If your structural steel welding isn’t living up to your ideals, we can help. Structural welders looking for steel welding materials, tools, and support can reach out to NFS at (651) 730-7770 or by visiting our website.
