TIG Welding

TIG (tungsten inert gas) welding, sometimes referred to as heliarc welding or GTAW (gas tungsten arc welding), is most commonly used to join thin sections of metals such as stainless steel and aluminium (a non-ferrous metal - doesn’t contain Iron).

TIG welding is a more complex welding process which is difficult to master and is slower than most other welding techniques. TIG welding uses a tungsten electrode to create the arc at the area being welded. A inert gas is used to shield the weld from contaminants , thus creating a clean weld and preventing the area being welded from oxidising.

TIG welding can be split into three main areas depending on material;

Carbon Steel   |   Stainless Steel   |   Aluminium
