In the construction industry, almost every project involves stud welding operations in some way, including anything from building construction to other large-scale structures like bridges and water towers. Because stud welding is used for such a broad range of projects where accuracy, strength, and long-term reliability is critical, onsite production welding technicians need access to the best tools, equipment, and knowledge. At Northland Fastening Systems (NFS), we provide a comprehensive range of stud welding products to support your needs, including a range of stud dimensions, stud welding tools for rent or purchase, equipment accessories, and our own technicians’ expertise. In addition to our complete stud welding resources, we also provide options for jobsite welding and mobile projects.
Jobsite welding has multiple obstacles that technicians face often. The most common is the lack of power on construction sites when steel skeletons are put up before electrical lines are run. Handling the lack of provided electricity requires technicians to bring their own power source with them to the jobsite.
Power Source: Supplying your own power source is as simple as bringing a lightweight generator that can be calibrated to the specifications of your tools and the materials you’re working with. When you work with NFS, you can take advantage of the generators we rent to clients with jobsite welding projects. For construction jobs in the early stages without onsite power, a generator is a necessity to perform any of the stud welding that is so often crucial to continuing the fabrication process.
Portability: Another important aspect of jobsite welding is portability. Some stud welding units can be bulky, difficult to move, and even harder to install in a safe, working position. The problem with choosing a lightweight, portable welding unit is a potential need to compromise for welding power. With the right NFS welding units and equipment, you don’t need to compromise portability for power. Units like the HBS IT 2002 and other similar models offer heavy-duty drawn arc welding capabilities and mobility with ease.
With the right power source and portable welding unit, you can take on any jobsite welding project, no matter what stage construction is in. Because stud welding is such a heavily used operation in the early stages of building construction, and throughout the fabrication process as a whole, it’s important to have access to tools that are portable and external power sources.
Don’t rely on the jobsite to provide what you need to get the job done. Portable tools and power sources are available to you through NFS today.
