FAMILY OF AGi ELECTRODES WITH SILVER INSERT
WE HAVE DEVELOPED ELECTRODES WITH INTEGRATED MASSIVE SILVER INSERT
Silver has very good electrical and thermal conductivity. For practical applications, it is usually used as an alloy with other metals to improve the mechanical properties in particular. Disadvantage of pure silver is purchase price what increase price of final product, which is billed to customer. For the best heat removal is much better to use silver material only along the hafnium insert what leads to ensure sufficient hafnium cooling(improved electrode lifetime). In the view of full utilization of silver material attributes is usage of silver insert optimal construction solution for improved electrodes.
PRICE IS IMPORTANT: THE BEST PRICE/LIFETIME RATIO | MONEY SAVING SOLUTION
With the continuously increasing price of silver on world markets we began the manufacture of electrodes that showed the best price to a given output ratio in the market. We have developed an electrode with specially inserted silver insert, which together with high quality machined hafnium insert, provides output close to silver electrode at a significantly lower price.
AGi ELECTRODES CONSTRUCTION IN DETAIL:
AGi electrodes incorporate a hafnium/silver interface at the point of electrical transfer. The hafnium/silver extracts more heat and has a stronger bond than hafnium/copper.
Unlike conventional copper/silver electrodes, AGi electrodes feature a robust solid-state copper/silver weld joint.

3 LEVELS OF AGi INSERTS : AGi > AGiMAX > AGiEXX | GOOD > BETTER > the BEST
We bring you option to choose AGi electrode to meet your needs! You can choose AGi electrode from 3 versions which differ in the size of the silver insert :
> GOOD > BETTER > the BEST
Standart AGi electrode
Normal Ag insert for standart cutting operations
Improved mid. range AGi electrode
"Silver top" electrodes
No compromises AGi electrode
"Silver head" electrodes for heavy duty cutting operations
ADJUST ARC VOLTAGE
In order to maintain the proper torch-to-plate distance in systems using a voltage-based height control, arc voltage should be increased in 5-volt increments throughout the life of the AGi electrodes. The first adjustment is usually needed at the time that you would replace a copper electrode. To maximize consumable life, continue to adjust arc voltage to maintain the initial torch-to-plate distance.
