TIG welding

TIG welding is the most precise method of welding with the use of an inconsumable electrode.

On what principle does TIG welding work?

TIG welding is the opposite of common welding (MAG/ MIG, SAW, etc.) different in using an inconsumable electrode – wolfram and both hands. The welder holds in one hand a torch which makes a welding arc and then in another hand he has additional material. When it collides with the arc it melts and makes a required shape. Thanks to this procedure, TIG welding is one of the most complicated methods. However, at the same time, it is one of the most precise methods of welding which is used for welding non-standard materials (welding of copper, bronze, or aluminum) ot it is used when it is needed for very precise or small shapes.

Which materials are most often welded by TIG welding?

Stainless steel, stainless steel sheets, nickel, and aluminum alloys belong to the most often used materials in TIG welding. We recommend the method of TIG welding for the material thinner than 4 mm. In the case of thicker materials, we recommend MIG/MAG welding methods or submerged arc welding. (SAW welding method).

The biggest advantages of TIG welding method:

  • precision,
  • a nice shape without a spatter,
  • welding of very thin materials,
  • the perfect control of a burning arc,
  • the possibility of welding less traditional materials.
