Firstly, it is easy to make a mistake in measuring the taper of an electrode. This error can compromise the final result and cause slowdowns in production or invalidate welding processes, preventing consistent quality parameters from being maintained.
Secondly, an incorrect electrode form can cause problems of various natures, from a lack of mechanical strength to the burning of the workpiece, from poor electrode life to more serious consequences such as damage to the machine itself, due to incorrect parameter settings.
Precisely these kinds of wrong choices can shorten the life of the electrode. It can also be an unsuitable mode of use, the machine on which it is mounted, the type of material to be welded that is not optimal. With technical advice, many problems can be solved, so that procedures can be improved, and the most suitable type of electrode can be chosen.
