Arc welder galore at Opies

Electric welding is the process of joining parts by fusion. This is due to the heat produced by an electric arc – hence the name “arc welding”

There are unique advantages to using an arc welder over a standard welder, from it being considerably more economical, lighter joints that have the strength equal to the parent metal, and offering an overall improvement in the surface finish of the welded joint. Now, Opies are pleased to announce that we sell arc welders, the perfect addition to the workshop for all you tinkerers out there!
