Diamond Wheel Tungsten Electrode Grinders are recommended for all tungsten electrode grinding. Tungsten is a very hard material and with the diamond wheel being a harder material it makes for a smooth grind.
The Tungsten Electrode is one of the most important variables involved in TIG welding. Preparing your Tungsten Electrode correctly will help to improve arc starting, arc stability and consequently weld quality.
Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT® now manufacture the TEG-1000 Tungsten Electrode Grinder with a diamond wheel, producing smooth, perfect surface finishes that eliminate arc jumping leading to consistent welds.
Ron Sewell, Chairman for HFT® said: “Using a Grinder that has been designed and manufactured specifically for tungsten metal is not only a much safer option, they provide more accurate results leading to as many as ten times greater number of arc strikes and giving very directional arcs without flicker or wander.”
“Even if you have some of the best welding equipment available, without a properly prepared Tungsten Electrode, your weld could always be compromised!”
The use of the TEG-1000 Grinder will give repeatable Tungsten Electrode points every time, enabling consistent arc performance and welding results. Sizes 1.0 to 3.2 mm can be ground as standard, with other sizes catered for on request.
TIG welding requires Tungsten Electrodes to have perfectly ground and polished tips. HFT®’s TEG-1000 provides these, time after time, to exactly the same size and shape. The design of the TEG-1000 is such, that the diamond wheel grinds the Tungsten Electrodes longitudinally, preventing arc flicker or wander caused by circumferential lines or ridges found on electrodes, which have been ground incorrectly.
With Tungsten Electrodes ground and polished, mechanised welding can produce identical results every time. With manual welding, the shape of the Tungsten Electrode is just as important. With a correctly shaped tip, the arc can be precisely positioned with none of the erratic arcing experienced when using poorly shaped manually ground tips.
