China Electrode Holder: What You Need To Know


According to some professional electrode holder manufacturers, although the electrode holder is a smaller piece of equipment for welding, it is the crucial connector that allows the current to travel from your machine through the wire to the electrode. The electrode holder grips the stick electrode firmly while transferring the necessary amperage to the rod during the welding process.


What is stick welding?

This is the first thing you need to figure out before getting clear on what an electrode holder is. Stick welding is also called manual metal arc welding (MMAW), shielded metal arc welding (SMAW), or flux shielded arc welding. Stick welding can join the most common alloys and metals and can even weld dirty or rusty metals. It uses consumable electrode sticks, which are ideal for short welding tasks.

What is the electrode holder?

The stick welding electrode, also known as a stinger, the holder is connected to a stick welder that supplies current to the electrode, allowing the welding operator to control the position of the electrode during the stick welding task. An electric arc is struck between the electrode and the workpiece, and the heat from the arc melts and fuses the workpiece material and the electrode material to form the weld.


The flux coating on the electrode shields the weld pool from airborne contaminants as the electrode melts. Stick welding does not require shielding gas and can be used in windy outdoor areas. Therefore, it has fewer parts and is more portable than MIG (metal inert gas) and TIG (tungsten inert gas) welding.


What are the benefits of the electrode holder?

As mentioned above, the electrode holder is an insulated handle that clamps onto the electrode. The welder holds this device to control the arc during the welding process. And the high-quality China electrode holder can deliver the following advantages:


  • * Electrode cables secured by two hexagonal screws
  • * Excellent current transfer between electrode and holder
  • * Two-hole positions at 45° and 90° for welding in different positions
  • * All electrode holders are fully insulated to provide maximum safety
