What is TIG Welding?

TIG (Tungsten Inert Gas)

In TIG welding, a tungsten electrode heats the metal you are welding and gas (most commonly Argon) protects the weld puddle from airborne contaminants. TIG welding produces clean, precise welds on any metal.

  • TIG welding uses a non-consumable tungsten
  • Filler metal, when required, is added by hand
  • Shielding gas protects the weld and tungsten
  • Produces high quality, clean welds
  • Welds more metals than any other process
