Ultima TIG Tungsten Grinding Machine – 230V

The Ultima TIG Tungsten Grinder bench mounted machine is a perfect workshop grinder for precise tungsten electrode sharpening.  These tungsten grinders offer safe grinding of TIG tungstens in an enclosed unit, preventing the inhalation of grinding dust and minimising heat input into the tungsten by cooling it with water during the grind.  Sharpen Tungstens accurately every time to precise angles, to suit the welding application in hand.

Choose a model from the above dropdown:

  • Ultima TIG – Grinds tungstens from 0.8mm to 4mm
  • Ultima TIG Cut – Also Cuts tungstens safely, without splitting the electrode
  • Ultima TIG S – Grinds larger diameter tungstens up to 8mm

The Ultima TIG Tungsten Electrode Grinder is constructed with a unique, fully enclosed grinding and cutting chamber with dual dust disposal containers. This enables the machine to automatically collect all toxic dust particles, giving a healthy dust free environment for the operator and eliminating the need for separate extraction systems.  Whilst fume from grinding should be avoided as best as possible, it is particularly important when grinding Thoriated tungsten electrodes.  Thorium used in thoriated tungsten electrodes is a radioactive source and presents additional risk when particles are formed when grinding.

Cold wet grinding combined with the diamond wheels’ high grinding speed ensures that the tungsten electrode always has a polished and even surface.  The water cooling during the cut prevents heat build-up during the grind too, which prevents chemical composition degradation of the tungsten, which can also alter arc characteristics.

With the Ultima TIG Tungsten Grinder you will achieve the exact angle that you require. A special locking device positions the electrode precisely at the angle, which also results in minimum waste. The grinding operation is carried out in the correct longitudinal direction along the electrode to ensure correct arc characteristics and minimise arc wander. A precise angle is not only important to the quality of the welding seams, but it also increases the number of re-ignitions between grinding, thus prolonging the electrode life.

Importance of Sharpening TIG Tungsten Electrodes:

Sharpening TIG tungsten electrodes is not merely a routine maintenance task; it is an indispensable aspect of achieving superior welding outcomes. Here’s why it matters:

  1. Enhanced Arc Stability: A well-sharpened tungsten electrode promotes a stable and focused welding arc. This stability improves arc control, reduces arc wandering, and facilitates precise weld placement, resulting in cleaner welds and minimal defects.
  2. Contamination Prevention: Properly sharpened electrodes minimize the risk of contamination from irregular arcs and tungsten particles. Contaminants can lead to impurities in the weld, weakening the joint and compromising the weld’s integrity.
  3. Consistent Weld Quality: Uniform electrode tip geometry ensures a consistent heat distribution during welding, leading to uniform fusion between metals. This consistency results in welds with superior strength, free from inclusions or porosity.
  4. Longer Electrode Life: Regularly sharpened electrodes last longer, reducing downtime for electrode replacement and saving on operational costs. It also minimizes the frequency of arc starting issues, optimizing productivity.


In conclusion, the Ultima TIG Tungsten Grinder is the ultimate tool for welding professionals seeking precise and top-quality TIG electrode preparation. With its innovative features and emphasis on electrode sharpening, it empowers welders to achieve unmatched welding performance, providing clean, strong, and reliable welds for a wide range of applications. Experience the pinnacle of TIG welding excellence with the Ultima TIG Tungsten Grinder!
