Arc Characteristics

Welding Arc

The arc is what sets Arcon apart. Welders love our arc. The original Arcon design uses an arc dynamic that is described as "Constant Power".  With Constant Power, changing the arc length will raise or lower the voltage, with a corresponding change in the amperage to maintain constant wattage, or power. The HEAT stays the same, but the operator quickly learns he can control penetration by changing the arc length.
