About ARC Magazine

Based on the title and some of the imagery, it's not hard to guess that it's about welding. But it's also about a lot more than that.

Yes, ARC is about welding, but it's also about the topics we think welders will enjoy.

If you're a beginner, ARC aims to make welding and metalworking more accessible and less intimidating, and give you the tools you need to be successful. If you're a veteran, ARC will help you take your craft to another level by connecting you with other experts in the field. We've tried to make ARC informative, but just as important, we've tried to make it entertaining by featuring articles and interviews that we think will appeal to the welding and metalworking audience. 

ARC Magazine is for anyone who shapes metal in some form or another to push their envelope of choice – be it in manufacturing, art, entertainment, community service or some other passion – to new limits and new heights. In either a high-profile or modest way, either on the job or on the weekend, you're one of those people. Or at the very least, you aspire to be. That's why ARC is for you.

So tell us what you're thinking.

Let us know what you like, what you don't like, what you want to see more of – and yes, even what you want to see less of. We're listening, and we're ready to respond. Let us know the challenges and issues you're dealing with, and we'll address them in these pages. ARC is your magazine, after all, and it's about a lot more than just welding. It's about a life you've chosen and all the things you do to get the most out of it.
