WATER- A WELDER’S LIFE FORCE

Anyone stepping up to higher amperage needs a water-cooled system to keep productivity high and tools in tip top shape. Excessive heat quickly degrades your torch and consumables. Essential components of a water-cooled welding rig include: water-cooler, compact torches, connectors, & vane-style water pumps. Questions??? Give us a shout – We’re here to help!

STOP MELTING YOUR TORCH

BLOG-Water-Cooling-System
Is your Air-Cooled TIG torch too hot to handle? 
It may be time to think about upgrading to a water-cooled system. You’ll be able to use water-cooled torches that run much cooler and allow you to access higher amperages. Think of all the welding possibilities!

LAST CHANCE TO SAVE $75

We enjoy celebrating the people and tools that make our welding community great. Nick (@mishler_made_fab) knows the benefits of a water-cooled rig first hand – it allows him to work with a smaller, cooler torch without having to stop & wait til everything cools down. Plus, his tools and consumables last longer. What’s your secret to productivity in the shop? Join the conversation, and share your work with us @arc_zone.

THIS IS HOW I SHOW MY LOVE

Wanted: Women Welders

Rosie_250FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Carlsbad, Calif. February 4, 2015—Arc-Zone.com is looking for women welders to profile for the “New Rosies” column on the company’s blog at CarmenElectrode.com. Since its inception in 2007 the column has showcased a variety of women working in many facets of the welding industry. From pipe welders to automotive fabricators, from steam fitters to television show hosts, the “New Rosies” perform all kinds of work in the industry.

The blog, the first in the welding industry, premiered in 2004 and by 2006 was focusing on issues related to women such as tips for success in a male-dominated industry, and fun facts about Rosie the Riveter—including profiles and photos of the original Rosies. The New Rosies column has featured over 35 women whose interviews continue to be the most popular pages on the blog.

To be featured as a New Rosie, visit www.CarmenElectrode.com

New Year, New Look for Arc-Zone.com

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CONTACT:   Maureen Henry or Matthew Dodd   PHONE:  760-931-1500

ARC-ZONE LAUNCHES REDESIGNED WEBSITE

Carlsbad, CA—For the new year Arc-Zone.com® has launched a redesign of their ecommerce site that includes a fresh new look along with improvements to functionality based on customer feedback.  Arc-Zone offers over 10,000 unique products and the new website features simplified fly-out navigation menus and a more accurate search tool to better target the MIG, TIG, and Plasma Arc Welding products customers are shopping for.  The most significant update to the web store is its mobile responsive design.

Arc-Zone.com’s new mobile responsive design

“We take our customers’ needs very seriously,” says Arc-Zone founder and CEO Jim Watson.  “Like us, our customers are accessing the internet from the desktop computer in the office and from out in the field using tablets, smart phones, and other mobile devices.  The site is now designed to look great and function well no matter how or from where you’re accessing it.”

The Arc-Zone website is a purpose-built store developed from custom code.  Watson says that one of the benefits of using custom code is that the Arc-Zone.com site is less vulnerable to security attacks because it’s not the same code that everyone else is using.  “Besides,” Watson says, “like our customers, we like to build things!”

Other upgrades to the store include an improved checkout process with the shopping cart visible in the header and a “Save for Later” option in case customers don’t have time to complete an order.  Product Reviews are more accessible too, so shoppers will know what other fabricators think of the MIG, TIG, and Plasma Arc Welding accessories in the Arc-Zone.com store.

Watson says some things, however, will always stay the same. “We’re committed to continuing to offer our customers the best service and technical support”

Founded in June 1998, Arc-Zone.com delivers proprietary, brand name and OEM replacement parts and accessories for GMAW, GTAW and Plasma Arc Welding and Cutting applications to customers worldwide.
