Joining materials with the use of TIG welding involves the use of a non – consumable tungsten electrode surrounded by an inert shielding gas, for example argon and helium or mixtures thereof.

The advantage of the TIG method is its versatility. It can be used with very thin sheets with thickness of 0.5 mm. The result of this welding is a high quality and high purity weld. There are no splashes of liquid metal or slag that could contaminate the weld. Therefore, after completion of the work, the weld does not require any cleaning and is ready for further use.

The TIG process is most frequently used for such materials as stainless steel, copper, titanium, aluminium, nickel. And so for the industry, pipes, pipelines and thin sheets of metal are connected in this way. This makes this process indispensable for: food, aerospace, automotive, and chemical industries.

The advantages of TIG welding:

The advantages of TIG welding:

  • high quality welds
  • High purity of weld seams
  • the possibility of welding different materials, including very thin sheets,
  • no splashes of liquid metal,
  • the possibility to automate the process.
