E-Weld has, a wide variety of Arc Welding Equipment on offer. What exactly is arc welding you may ask?

Putting it as simply as possible, through the use of a welding power supply you are able to generate an electric arc, in other words this could be called an electrical breakdown of gas which allows for a continuing plasma discharge. This electric arc is able to melt the metal at the point of welding. Collecting the correct Arc Welding Equipment will help you to develop you skills as an arc welder. Initially developed in the 1800’s, this manner of welding still acts as an important process in order to properly fabricate vehicles and structures of the steel variety.

We at E-weld can offer a great deal of assistance when it comes to the assemblage of your arc welding kit. With top of the range products such as cable lugs, chipping hammers, dinse plugs, earth plugs, electrode holders, panel plugs, welding magnets, wire brushes and welding cables E-Weld is your one-stop shop for all Arc Welding Equipment needs.

It is also important to remember the process of welding can be a dangerous activity, so when gathering the necessary arc welding equipment you might want to purchase the gear necessary to keep yourself safe while working. Welders in the know arm themselves with heavyweight leather gloves and jackets so as to shield themselves from spark, flame and heat contact. To guard against a condition known as arc eye, where the cornea becomes inflamed and the retinas are essentially burnt, a safety conscious welder should wear welding googles and helmets. A good welding helmet will also protect the wearer from the possible inhalation of various gasses and matter produced though the process of welding. All the necessary safety equipment is readily available through E-weld.
