What Is TIG Welding?
In TIG welding, a tungsten electrode heats the metal you are welding and gas (most commonly Argon) protects the weld puddle from airborne contaminants. TIG welding produces clean, precise welds on any metal.
- TIG welding uses a non-consumable tungsten
- Filler metal, when required, is added by hand
- Shielding gas protects the weld and tungsten
- Produces high quality, clean welds
- Welds more metals than any other process
Benefits of TIG Welding
- Superior quality welds
- Welds can be made with or without filler metal
- Precise control of welding variables (heat)
- Free of spatter
- Low distortion
