TIG Welding Benefits
TIG welding is used for fine, exact welding on thinner metals. Tungsten Inert Gas welding, because it affords greater control over the weld area than other welding processes, can produce high-quality welds when performed by our skilled operators. Its typically small electrode and precise energy input, inert gas shielding, and lack of slag formation gives TIG welding the ability to produce the highest quality of any arc welding method. TIG welding is used on a variety of metals, including carbon steel, stainless steel, aluminum, titanium, copper, magnesium, and nickel alloys.
While the aerospace industry is one of the primary users of gas tungsten arc welding, the process is used in a number of other areas. It is used extensively in the manufacture of space vehicles, and is also frequently employed to weld small-diameter, thin-wall tubing such as those used in the bicycle industry. In maintenance and repair work, the process is commonly used to repair tools and dies, especially components made of aluminum and magnesium. Because the weld metal is not transferred directly across the electric arc like most open arc welding processes, a vast assortment of welding filler metal is available. Since the resulting welds have the same chemical integrity as the original base metal or match the base metals more closely, TIG welds are highly resistant to corrosion and cracking over long time periods, making TIG the welding procedure of choice for critical operations.
