Tungsten Electrode

The tungsten electrode is a crucial component in Tungsten Inert Gas (TIG) welding and Plasma Arc Welding (PAW). Tungsten, due to its high melting point and excellent electrical conductivity, makes it an ideal material for these electrodes. TIG welding uses a non-consumable tungsten electrode to create the welding arc, while PAW employs a tungsten electrode enclosed in a nozzle through which a plasma gas flows.

The choice of tungsten electrode type depends on various factors like the material being welded, the welding process, and the current type. Common types include pure tungsten, which is primarily used for AC welding of aluminum and magnesium, and various alloyed tungsten electrodes like thoriated, ceriated, lanthanated, and zirconiated tungsten, each offering specific advantages depending on the application.

Proper selection and preparation of tungsten electrodes are essential for achieving high-quality welds, ensuring good arc stability, and minimizing contamination of the weld pool.

Key Considerations When Choosing Tungsten Electrodes

When selecting a tungsten electrode, several factors should be considered:

  • Type of tungsten electrode

  • Diameter of the electrode

  • Quality and roughness of the electrode after grinding

  • Tip geometry of the TIG welding electrode
