Billionth arc struck.

Since its development team designed a Tungsten Electrode over 25 years ago, HUNTINGDON FUSION TECHNIQUES (HFT) calculates that more than 1 billion arcs have now been struck with them. The Multi Strike electrode is said to provide more than ten times the number of arc strikes than the conventional red tipped thoriated tungsten electrodes more commonly in use. This allows operators to keep processes running longer without the need to keep changing and re-grinding electrode tips. This makes the electrodes useful in all automatic welding processes, particularly where the arc must be switched on and off frequently. In addition, users with continuous welding processes are reported to have found that their arc stays on longer when using Multi Strike electrodes.
