TIG (Tungsten Inert Gas) Welding is also called Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW). TIG welding has become a popular choice of welding processes when high quality, precision welding is required.
In TIG welding an arc is formed between a nonconsumable tungsten electrode and the metal being worked. Gas is fed through the torch to shield the electrode and molten weld pool. If filler wire is used, it is added to the weld pool separately.
Although TIG welding is a relatively slow process, it provides high quality welds.
TIG welders can be used to weld steel, stainless steel, chromoly, aluminum, nickel alloys, magnesium, copper, brass, bronze, and even gold. TIG is a useful welding process for welding wagons, bike frames, lawn mowers, door handles, fenders, and more. TIG welds can be made in all positions – flat, horizontal, vertical or overhead, making it perfect for roll cages and inside confined areas.
With superior arc and weld puddle control, TIG allows you to create clean welds when appearances count. This makes TIG welding ideal for cosmetic welds like sculptures and automotive welds.
