Monty Panesar then took 4-29 as Glamorgan were skittled out for just 102 in their second innings, meaning Northants only had to make five without loss to seal the win.
Northants bagged 21 points while bottom side Glamorgan took just four more as they maintained a poor record of just one win all season.
Stephen Peters clocked his third century of the campaign to leave the hosts in a strong position against Glamorgan.
Peters ground his way to 104 from 227 balls, adding 124 with Rob White (75) for the second wicket as Northants stretched their lead to 89 with two wickets still standing.
Skipper David Sales also made 78 while Glamorgan veteran Robert Croft got just reward for his 51 overs - claiming 4-130 including his 1000th first-class wicket.
Opener Andrew Crook was put down in the slips in the third over but was soon taken by Gareth Rees with the score on 89.
However, White was also dropped on five by Ben Wright and this time they paid as the batsman moved to his third half century despite a vociferous bat-pad appeal after lunch.
Croft eventually trapped him lbw but Peters moved to his century and Sales dug in, sweeping Dean Cosker for six to reach his fifty.
Wickets fell at regular intervals but Lance Klusener (23) and Monty Panesar (23no) ensured Glamorgan must take the field once again on Thursday.

Davies made an unbeaten 49 from 52 balls, defying Klusener who finished with figures of 5-40, his wickets including that of Wallace.
Northamptonshire were untroubled as they began their reply, reaching 61-0 off 16 overs before the close of play.
Stephen Peters will resume on 41 on day two after facing 61 balls and smashing six fours.
