TIG (tungsten inert gas) welding is a form of arc welding often used on non – ferrous metals and allows for greater control over the weld than other forms of arc welding, which leads to higher quality welds.
TIG welding uses a shielding gas to protect the weld area from defects and embrittlement. This is usually in inert gas.
It's used for a variety of sometimes vastly different applications, from building space vehicles to bicycles. TIG welds are usually very resistant to corrosion, as well as cracking.
Why do we need TIG welders?
TIG welders are vital for creating high quality and strong welds on non-ferrous metal. The greater control compared to other types of arc welding allows for far better welds compared to those forms.
Also, used with orbital and seam welding processes.
