Operation: ARC

Contemporary book project opens the door to welding and all its uses, in an easy-to-understand and entertaining way

Entitled 'Operation: ARC', this new book just brought out by Fronius takes a radically new approach to acquainting outsiders with welding technology. It introduces the basics of welding and its uses to a broad public, on nearly 90 easy-reading pages packed with exciting and informative cartoon stories, easy-to-understand technical articles and personal statements from many different industry professionals.

The book is especially aimed at young people, beginners and the technically interested, to whom it gives an enjoyable and fascinating insight into the world of welding technology. Along the way, readers get to know an innovative tech firm and some of its most adventurous people, whose job it is to put welding technology to work even in extreme situations such as in the desert, on the high seas or underwater, and to advance it into new areas of application.

With its protagonists Marie, Eric, Nico and Prof. Arcus, the Weld Force rises to adventures all over the world, many of them based on real events. The stories are told in graphic-novel style, a genre which is enjoying increasing worldwide popularity - even in the professional field, such as in Japan, where school-books based on this concept are being used with great success. 'Operation: ARC' deliberately does without long-winded explanations and unnecessary technical jargon. Technical articles with informative and attractive illustrations deepen readers' knowledge about welding and show what a vital role welding technology plays in present-day applications such as the building of electric vehicles, hydroelectric power stations, aircraft and ships. The book is rounded off by testimonials in which professionals share their personal experience and insights. This gives readers an authentic description of the working environment, the tasks and the people that may be encountered in the welding technology sector.

In this easy-read book 'Operation: ARC,' the authors succeed in showing what a diverse and multi-faceted field welding technology is today, highlighting how advanced technologies such as lithium batteries, lasers, computers, robots and high-tech materials make welding an attractive field of work for both novices and veteran technology enthusiasts alike.

The book 'Operation: ARC' is available in English and German, from the middle of September, and can be ordered from your usual point of contact at Fronius.
