5 TIPS TO IMPROVE YOUR GRIND
With precision applications like orbital tube and pipe welding or plasma arc welding, it’s important that electrodes are precision ground consistently. We recommend using a dedicated tungsten grinder which allows you to pre-set the angle.

ONE TUNGSTEN BLEND FOR ALL MATERIALS
Fabricators from around the world are using ArcTime™ Hybrid tungsten electrodes to improve weld-quality, lower tungsten inventory costs, and minimize weld defects. What started as a “cult product” with a few specialty manufacturers of yacht towers, aerospace parts, mountain bikes, and race cars, has grown into Arc-Zone’s most popular tungsten electrode blend.

CONSISTENT WELDS = CONSISTENT STICK-OUT
No more eyeballing. Replicate your optimal set-up by measuring your tungsten electrode stick-out. This bad boy is CNC’d out of brass, has incremental 1/16″ markings all the way up to one inch, and comes with a sweet carabiner for all your keys and lucky rabbits feet. Save time, maintain accuracy and consistency, with the CK-TG1. The right tools make all the difference.

AS SEEN ON INSTAGRAM™ SERIES
We’ve been on Instagram for well over a year now, and in that time we’ve shared great photos and “met” both colorful and awe-inspiring fabricators from across the globe. We understand that not everyone is on social media, and for that reason, we’ve started a new series over on our JoeWelder blog called “As Seen On Instagram™” to keep you posted on trending topics within the welding community.
