TIG Welding

What is TIG welding?

Tungsten Inert Gas (TIG) welding, also known as Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW), uses a non-consumable tungsten electrode to produce a weld. The process uses an inert gas, usually argon, to protect the weld from atmospheric contamination and usually uses a filler metal although that is not always necessary.

What are the benefits of TIG welding?

  • Control– the TIG welding process allows the operator much greater control than other welding processes producing high quality, strong and clean welds.
  • Versatility – TIG welding can be used for welding more metals and other alloys than any of the other processes.

What are the disadvantages of TIG welding?

  • Complexity – the TIG welding process is more complex and therefore more difficult to become proficient at than other processes.
  • Speed – because of its’ complexity TIG welding is also slower than other processes.
