"It is extremely important that we listen to our customers," said Ken Caratelli, President of the Fastener Systems division at Doncasters. "The Nelweld® N800i(TM) was developed in response to our customers' need for extreme portability - the lightweight portable design allows a single person to carry the complete welding system, a must in ship building and repairs, where the majority of the ship's components are only accessible through tight hatchways. In addition, this third generation all digital inverter system delivers 50% more power than comparable products. "

Stud welding saves time and money in the fabrication of military and commercial ships. The Nelweld® N800i(TM) is in the forefront with state-of-the-art technology for shipyards throughout the world, accommodating a wide range of input power while using less power than transformer rectifiers.

With applications in the shipbuilding industry, the Nelweld® N800i(TM) is used for an array of products such as insulation pin applications, cable hangers and threaded fasteners. Additionally, with easy set-up, the Nelweld® N800i(TM) is extremely fast and efficient for welding ½ inch fasteners.
