TEG-1000 with Diamond Wheel for Grinding any Tungsten Electrode!
Back by popular demand, Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT® have re-designed the TEG-3 and manufactured the 'NEW' TEG-1000 Tungsten Electrode Grinder.
Ensuring your Tungsten Electrode is sharpened correctly using the TEG-1000 is a more convenient, safer and accurate way than other methods of grinding Tungsten Electrodes.
Ensuring your Tungsten Electrodes are sharpened correctly can help to improve weld quality. Poorly ground Tungsten Electrodes eliminate proper longitudinal diamond grinding or consistency of tungsten electrode preparation.
Tungsten Electrode Grinders are a convenient, safer and more accurate diamond ground way than other methods of grinding Tungsten Electrodes and for Tungsten Preparation. Choose the perfect Tungsten Grinder, the TEG-1000 for all your welding needs.
Eliminate Arc Flicker and Wander
The Techweld® MultiStrike® Tungsten Electrode Grinder TEG-1000 is a much-upgraded version from the old models TEG-2 and TEG-3 now with a totally enclosed motor.
The TEG-1000 will give repeatable Tungsten Electrode points every time, enabling consistent repeatable arc performance and welding results. Sizes 1.0 to 3.2 mm can be ground as standard, with other sizes catered for with an easy collet change available as an accessory.
With Tungsten Electrodes ground and polished, mechanised welding can produce identical, repeatable results every time. Through manual welding, the shape of the Tungsten Electrode is just as important. A correctly shaped tip can ensure the arc is precisely positioned with none of the preferential arcing experienced when using poorly shaped manually ground tips.
By grinding the points longitudinally, the TEG-1000 Tungsten Electrode Grinder eliminates arc flicker or wander.
Savings can be achieved because of the increased life of properly ground Tungsten Electrodes. With the special collect accessory, shorter tungstens can be held, significantly increasing the length of life of each Tungsten Electrode before it is discarded.

Long Life Diamond Grinding Wheels
Tungsten Electrode Grinders 'Long Life' Diamond Grinding Wheels for our 'unique' models TEG-2 and TEG-3 continue to be available as replacements.
The wheel on the 'New' TEG-1000 updated model is the same.
HFT® Grinding Wheels were specifically developed by HFT® to produce long lasting and long life results. We continue to have availability of Replacement 'Long Life' Diamond Grinding Wheels.
Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT® pioneered the use of Tungsten Electrode Grinding machines in the 1970's because of our knowledge behind the science of the welding arc and the need for a consistently and correctly ground tungsten electrode.
Perfectly Ground and Polished Tips, Time and Time Again
The Techweld® MultiStrike® Tungsten Electrode Grinder model TEG-1000 has been specifically designed and manufactured for the job. The cost saved in grinding wheels alone can provide rapid payback on the small outlay required to purchase the grinder.
Ensuring your Tungsten Electrode is sharpened correctly can help improve weld quality. The TEG-1000 ensures TIG welding Tungsten Electrodes have perfectly ground and polished tips.
The diamond wheel grinds the Tungsten Electrodes longitudinally, preventing arc flicker.
Replacement wheels fit all models, the TEG2, TEG-3 and the TEG-1000.
With a correctly shaped tip, the arc can be precisely positioned with none of the preferential arcing experienced when using poorly shaped manually ground tips.
Techweld® MutliStrike® Tungsten Grinder Frequently Asked Questions
1.0 What is the purpose of the TEG-1000?
The TEG-1000 Tungsten Electrode Grinder is a low cost, fast return on investment tool, that will grind repeatable Tungsten Electrode points every time, to exactly the same size, surface finish and shape at a low cost.
2.0 What size Tungsten Electrodes can the TEG-1000 be used for?
Sizes from 1.0 to 3.2 mm can be ground with the tappet provided. Other sizes and short lengths can be ground with the individual collet sets as required.
3.0 Why does the TEG-1000 require a diamond wheel?
The diamond wheel grinds the Tungsten Electrodes’ longitudinally and with a much smoother finish than other types of wheels. This prevents arc flicker or wander caused by circumferential lines or ridges found on Tungsten Electrodes, which have been ground incorrectly.
4.0 Can the diamond wheels be fitted to other grinders as replacements?
Our standard diamond wheels will fit both the TEG-3 and the TEG-1000 Tungsten Electrode Grinders.
5.0 What is the return on investment?
The cost saved in grinding materials alone can provide rapid payback for the TEG-1000 Tungsten Electrode Grinder. In addition because of the softer way that electrodes can be ground on the TEG-1000 with the diamond wheel, the electrodes are not overheated as they can be with other grinding methods and materials, so they do not split, thus saving on wastage of electrodes. Using the Collet/Pin Vice accessory, short lengths can be ground, whereas welders tend to discard 50% of the length of each tungsten as they become too short to hold for normal manual grinding methods. The diamond wheels last many times longer than the ‘soft’ silicon carbide wheels.
6.0 Where can I purchase the TEG-1000.
Please visit our website, where you can obtain information about our Worldwide Offices to locate your nearest Exclusive Distributor.
7.0 What Tungsten Electrode would you recommend for the TEG-1000?
The TEG-1000 will grind all standard Tungsten Electrodes for TIG/GTAW, Plasma/PAW and resistance welding. We highly recommend MultiStrike® Tungsten Electrodes which, to our knowledge, are the only fully traceable tungstens available. They have no radiotoxic thoria that the red tipped tungsten electrodes have. When used in automatic and manual welding processes, operators experience less down time and can achieve full weld penetration with less heat input and up to ten times greater arc striking before re-grinding is necessary.
