Huntingdon Fusion Techniques HFT® have received
numerous letters of praise from users, many of them major
Here are some comments which have been received in
writing to give you an idea of the benefits others have
experienced using Techweld® MultiStrike®.
"We manufacture small pharmaceutical fittings
using manual TIG welding and produce tube-tube
joints using mechanised orbital welding. In both
applications we have observed a four to five time
improvement between re-grinding when replacing
thoriated tungsten with your MultiStrike®." New York,
"The number of arc strikes between re-sharpening is
considerably greater with MultiStrike® than with thoriated
electrodes. We also find the lower heat input is a benefit
since we often weld in very close proximity to glass."
Senior Production Engineer.
"The introduction of MultiStrike® has been welcomed
by all our welding staff. The new electrodes are giving
excellent results and demonstrating much improved
strike characteristics. Although more expensive than
the previous electrodes, their life is significantly
longer which is expected to lead to long-term cost
savings. We are also aware of the health and safety
benefits of using non-thoriated electrodes." European
"We have tested your MultiStrike® under production
conditions where we need to make short lengths welds
using the TIG process. On a batch of 50 components
only 2 light re-grinds were required compared to 7 heavy
regrinds when using thoriated electrodes. Even when the
welder occasionally touched the work with the electrode
there was no material change in performance whereas
we would normally expect to have to re-grind. Better weld
quality and finish was observed. We were particularly
impressed with the health and safety aspects and have
taken the decision to remove all thoriated electrodes from
site." Production Service Manager.
“We manufacture thin-walled hollow shaft products in type
316 stainless steel. Whereas with thoriated electrodes
we regularly encounter problems with weld pitting which
necessitates re-welding and often re-machining, this
has been virtually eliminated when using MultiStrike®.
Significant savings in the cost of post weld operations
have been observed.” Texas, USA.
"We have now had an opportunity to evaluate your
MultiStrike® Electrodes and can report extended
working life between re-grinds and improvement in
initial strike rates. The most significant improvement
however is in automatic machine use." Technical
"We use computer controlled equipment for hot wire
cladding with stellite. With thoriated electrodes, we
observed rapid contamination leading to regrinding
after only 15/30 minutes. Using MultiStrike® has been a
revelation since we can achieve 8 hours of work between
regrinds. Savings in downtime have thus been significant."
