Arc Welder Accessories
An arc welder generates an electric arc between an electrode (AKA welding rod) and the base metals to melt the alloy center of the electrode and the base at the point-of-contact, thereby forming the weld. It’s an essential component for metalwork, but it doesn’t stand alone. Arc welder accessories such as welding cable connectors, pipe welding clamps, electrode holders, torch tips and other arc welder accessories tailor the equipment to the job, helping to make the arc welder all it can be. When contemplating the purchase of arc welder accessories, beware of product variations such as compatibilities, amps, inclusions, applications and other considerations.
