The equipment range and process diversity offered by Red-D-Arc sets it apart in the welder rental industry.

Beyond a basic offering of standard welding equipment products, the company also provides many specialty items to tackle any welding-related project.

Red-D-Arc supplies a range of custom equipment, including semi-automatic and automatic wire feeders, compressors, electrode ovens, flux holding ovens, gas cylinder cages, heat treating systems, mobile welder certification trailers.
