What is arczone or arc-zone?

The metal working and metal fabricating industry use common terms like weld zone or heat effected zone, These general terms refer to both Arc welding (using an electric arc) or Gas welding, Brazing or Soldering (using compressed gas as the heat source). The term arczone(tm) is specific to “Arc Welding” and includes Plasma Arc Welding (PAW), Metal Inert Gas Welding (MIG), Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW) or Tungsten Inert Gas Welding (TIG), Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW) or Stick Welding, Electron Beam Welding (EB), Plasma Spray Welding (PSW), Laser Welding (LW).

Specifically, the arczone(tm) is the area directly heated or affected by the heat generated from an electric arc. It is also used when referring to welding safety as in “wear eye protection when you are in proximity of the arczone(tm)”.

Arczone(tm), or more specifically arc dash zone dot com is the name I chose for my company which is a registered trade mark with the US Patent and Trade Mark Office.
