    Precision pulse arc welding is revolutionizing the jewelry world. The welders utilize an electrode about the size of needle and all of the action happens under a microscope, which allows for precision welds similar to a laser welder. Unlike soldering, welding can happen right next to stones or other heat sensitive materials, making some designs that were previously impossible, and repairs that would have been a nightmare, a quick and easy reality.
