Clamping devices for holding the electrode securely in any position. The welding cable attaches to the holder through the hollow insulated handle. The design of the electrode holder permits quick and easy electrode exchange. Each holder is designed for use within a specified range of electrode diameters and maximum welding current. Wide range of electrode holders enables a selection, all from economical to high tech requirements and heavy duty performance. Most of the electrode holders are made from brass insulating material, which sustain a duty cycle of @35% or @60%.
