TIG Welding

Tungsten inert gas (TIG) welding bonds reactive metals such as magnesium and aluminum with an electrically-charged arc connecting a non-consumable tungsten electrode and the welding area. The inert shielding gas is usually argon, helium, or some combination of both, although argon is usually preferred because it provides the best coverage from air contaminants.

Benefits of TIG Welding:

    • Clean
    • Good heat control
    • Produces strong, high-quality welds
    • Can produce autogenous welds (no need for filler metal because the base metal can act as the filler metal itself)
