In domestic and foreign publications the problems of quality of manufacture of coated electrodes are considered quite insufficiently. In the present work an attempt was made to consider the causes for insufficient stability of the process of molding the electrodes and to share a practical experience in their elimination. The recommendations on optimizing the coating process in the manufacture of electrodes were given. 4 Ref.
Keywords: manufacture of welding electrodes, covering masses, technological properties, optimization, granulometric composition, composition and properties of charge
