We have an electrode technology solution for you.

For many years, we have been providing a copper/tungsten electrodes. We
utilize the 3D Keltool process, only using the above material instead of
the normal A6 steel.

The electrodes will last about 50% longer and give you a better finish than
graphite. Because our process is a replication process, we can make many
of them at one time for you. This is established technology, originally
developed by 3M in the mid-80's. Hundreds (if not thousands) of these
electrodes have been made.

For more info, just email, call me, or visit our website for more
(follow the rapid tooling links).

Thanks for your interest,
