Temperature Controlled TIG Welding

temperature controlled tig weldingTemperature controlled TIG welding uses a non-consumable tungsten electrode to produce the weld. The weld area is protected from atmospheric contamination by an inert shielding gas such as argon. A filler metal is normally used, and a welding power supply of constant current conducts energy across the arc through a column of highly ionized gas and metal vapors known as a plasma.

Temperature controlled TIG welding allows for stronger, higher quality welds but is more difficult to master. Therefore, it is a bit slower than most other common welding techniques. Temperature controlled TIG welding is capable of joining thin sections of light metals such as magnesium, aluminum, and copper alloys as well as stainless and tool steels.
