Tungsten Electrode Grinding and Precision Cut-Off All In One Machine
The TIG-Point system offers
precision longitudinal grinding of tungsten electrodes for use in TIG
and Plasma welding applications.
Setup and grinding operations are quick,
safe, and reliable.
The TIG-Point can be configured for
grinding, polishing and cutting providing longer tungsten life,
consistent arc parameters and improved performance over other grinding

In the manufacture of tungsten
electrodes the molecular structure of the grain runs in a longitudinal
Lateral grinding has a detrimental effect on
the smooth surface of the electrode.
rough surface variations caused by lateral grinding causes the arc to
wonder and the tungsten to overheat causing undesirable weld arc
characteristics and reduced tungsten life.
By utilizing longitudinal
grinding with the tungsten grain direction the arc is narrow and bell
shaped and very stable.
The tungsten electrode has a lower thermal
load and therefore longer life.
