tungsten grinding critical

IS TUNGSTEN GRIND ANGLE CRITICAL?

Grinding a blunt tip can also cause hard arc starts as well as arc wander. Thin-walled materials, or other lower amperage jobs may benefit more from a sharper tungsten grind angle. One last technique is to grind a sharp taper but grind a slight blunt tip to help reduce the chances of tip breakage and inclusions in the weld.

How to Correctly Grind Tungsten Electrodes and Stay Safe ...

2021-8-23  The critical thing to know is that sharpening influences weld penetration, arc stability and, above all, weld quality, in addition to the electrodes respective durability. A correct sharpening is one that gives the Tungsten an ideal shape, preventing it from being too pointed but not blunt.

How to Correctly Grind, Cut Prepare Tungsten Welding ...

2016-7-21  To produce optimum arc stability, diamond grinding of tungsten electrodes should be done with the axis of the electrode perpendicular to the axis of the grinding wheel. The diamond grinding wheel should be reserved for grinding only tungsten to eliminate possible contamination of the tungsten tip with foreign matter during the grinding operation. An exhaust system should be used when grinding Thoriated electrodes to remove the grinding

Effect of Tip angle of Tungsten electrode and proper ...

2015-8-14  Tungsten electrodes are manufactured with the molecular structure of the grain running lengthwise and thus grinding crosswise is “grinding against the grain.” More importantly, electrons flow at a greater density on the surface of the electrode. If electrodes are ground or polished crosswise the electrons have to jump across the grinding marks.

Selecting and preparing tungsten electrodes

2008-1-15  The tungsten electrode becomes overheated and wears out more quickly. With longitudinal grinding with the grain, the electrons are led steadily to the extreme tip of the tungsten electrode. The arc starts straight and remains narrow, concentrated, and stable. A diamond grinding wheel should not be used for grinding anything other than tungsten.
