We offer full TIG welding capability - our fabricators are time served and have over 30 years experience in the metal works industry. If you have any projects that require TIG welding, contact our friendly team who will be happy to help.
TIG welding is also known as GTAW which stands for gas tungsten arc welding - this is an arc welding process that use tungsten tips (electrodes) to produce a weld. Similar to MIG welding, a gas shield is used which keeps out airborne containments - this is done by the gas creating what is known as a shield. There are two main gas types used which are Argon and Helium. Wire (welding consumable or filler) is used to create the weld along with an electrical current.
TIG is mainly used for welding stainless steel and some other non-ferrous metals such as aluminium and copper based alloys.
There is increased control on the welding using TIG and generally a stronger and neater weld can be achieved.
A key disadvantage for TIG welding is that it does generally require more skill to master than some other types of welding. Like MIG welding, TIG is also automated in many factories and industries, thus reducing the demand of TIG welders in the labour industry.
