Welding Equipment Failures While on the Job

Welders never expect their equipment to fail, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t happen. Being prepared for work problems is ideal, but unless your welding equipment is pushing 60 and rusty, it’s hard to predict sudden failures. At Northland Fastening Systems (NFS), we provide all the welding gear you need for purchase, or for more flexible needs, for rent. Equipment failures may be tough to predict, but you can be ready for them with NFS’s rentable equipment and a team that knows the inherent risks that come with welding.

Safety-First Failure Routines

Safety is, of course, the highest priority when equipment failures inevitably happen. While deadlines are always looming, you should never try and continue a weld if your welding equipment isn’t behaving correctly. Even a small discrepancy can be enough to lead to faulty fastenings, or in severe cases, actual injuries. Clearing the site of hazards and stowing the damaged gear safely is always the top priority. After that, the replacement hunt can begin.

How to Get Quality Welding Equipment on Short Notice

Depending on the job in question, it might be easy enough to grab another stud gun or power supply, but more often than not, you’ll need to find a longer-term replacement for the failed gear. Whether you’re a company manager or independent contractor, this can be a major setback depending on budget constraints. With that in mind, NFS offers rentable equipment to help bridge the gap or support your project all the way to the end.

Our rentable equipment is always top-line, in excellent condition, and ready for use immediately on arrival. At NFS, we understand that it’s important to have access to high-quality welding equipment on a moment’s notice. In the event of unexpected welding equipment failures, our team has your back.
