GTAW of titanium requires careful planning and technique, but the material can provide companies with lower life-cycle costs and extended service life of parts. 

Adding a trailing shield to the GTAW torch (as shown with this fabricated one) keeps the shielding gas over the weld longer. It also decreases the potential for weld contamination while the material is above the 800-degree threshold.
