Huntingdon Fusion Techniques (HFT®) has re-initiated the manufacturing of the TEG-2 Tungsten Electrode Grinder, which retired from their product range a number of years ago, under the new name of TEG-1000.
The use of the TEG-1000 Grinder will give repeatable Tungsten Electrode points every time, enabling consistent repeatable arc performance and welding results. Sizes 1.0 to 3.2mm can be ground as standard, with other sizes catered for on request.
Georgia Gascoyne, the UK-based enterprise’s CEO, explained the reasons for bringing back the device, “Since we stopped manufacturing the TEG-2 Tungsten Electrode Grinder, we’ve been inundated with requests to bring it back into our product range. We are excited to announce that it’s back, with a new modern look and attractive price.”
TIG welding requires Tungsten Electrodes to have perfectly ground and polished tips. HFT’s TEG-1000 provides these to exactly the same size and shape. 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.
