Welding & Metalwork: TIG Welding
TIG welding is a versatile process, capable of handling all sorts of different metal, and can be used to join very thin sections. Tungsten inert gas (TIG) welding involves principles common to both MIG and oxyacetylene welding. The gas shielding used in MIG welding is also used in TIG welding with a compressed gas cylinder attached to the unit.
TIG welding is used for specialist metals such as aluminium and stainless steel and creates neat, slag-free welds. TIG welds are more precise compared with most other forms of welding and are particularly useful for welding thin or specialist metals due to the concentration of heat into a small area.
