We have an enclosed electrode grinder, which significantly reduces harmful radioactive (2%Thoriated) grinding dust exposure to both the user and the environment.
Properly ground electrodes improve arc starting and stability, reduce tungsten shedding, increase electrode life and enhance welding consistency.
3 position adjustment
each position allows for grinding on a different area of the grinding disc.
triples the lifetime of grinding disc.

Welding high-quality materials represents a challenge to the experienced welder and to welding technology. The fulfillment of quality requirements depends on the precise matching of material, manufacturing and design parameters. The safety of the structural component itself depends on a high weld quality and reproducible welding parameters.
The choice of the right electrode plays a decisive role in determining the form of the arc during TIG and plasma welding. Consistency of striking, arc stability, low electrode consumption and thus the quality of the welding process depend to a large extent on this choice. Only the TIG welder with his experience and expert knowledge can make the right choice. The choice is yours Our range of products covers all internationally standardised tungsten electrodes in respect of chemical composition and dimensions.
The ease of striking tungsten electrodes is primarily determined by the electron emission power of their admixtures. It has long been known in electron tube and filament lamp technology that the electron emission can be improved with thoriated tungsten filaments. The striking characteristics of thoriated welding electrodes are also superior to those of pure tungsten electrodes. Moreover, the oxide particles counteract the formation of coarse grains at the extremely hot electrode tip, thus reducing consumption.
The zirconium Tungsten electrode is ideal for welding light metals and their alloys with alternating current, though it can also Tungsten electrodes with oxide additives other than thorium such as lanthanum oxide and cerium oxide are increasingly being used for d.c. welding. Experienced welders can make the optimum choice from our extensive range of products.
The quality of a tungsten electrode depends on the correct and uniform microstructure with no internal cracks present. This allows for easy striking, arc stability, and longer service life.
The electrode parameters are constantly being optimised and controlled for various applications in cooperation with renowned research institutions.
In accordance with EN 26 848 and AWS A5.12-80, the tungsten electrodes shall display no surface faults such as microcracks and scale. Moreover, the surface must be free of oil, grease or other impurities.
Finally the electrodes are individually checked using inductive test methods to ensure conformity with internal standards. This 100% test guarantees that only top quality tungsten electrodes are supplied.
