Frequently Asked Questions:

What are TIG Machines?

TIG machines, also known as TIG welders or GTAW (gas tungsten arc welding) machines, are a type of arc welder that uses a non-consumable tungsten electrode to create a weld. Here's a closer look at how they work:

  • Non-consumable tungsten electrode: Unlike MIG welders, TIG welders use a tungsten electrode that doesn't melt during the welding process. The tungsten simply conducts electricity to create the intense heat needed for welding.

  • Filler metal (optional): TIG welding can be done with or without filler metal. If the metal being welded is thin enough, the edges can be melted together to form a weld without needing additional material. For thicker metals, a separate filler rod is fed manually into the weld pool to create the desired joint size.

  • Shielding gas: Similar to MIG welders, TIG welders use an inert gas, typically argon, to shield the weld pool from contamination by the atmosphere.

TIG machines are known for their precision and clean welds, making them ideal for working with thin metals or specialty metals like titanium and magnesium.

Are TIG Machines any good?

Here are some of their advantages:

  • Clean and precise welds: TIG welders offer excellent control over the welding process, resulting in clean welds with minimal spatter.
  • Versatility: TIG welders can weld a wide variety of metals, including thin sheets, pipes, and tubes.
  • Good for dissimilar metals: TIG welding can be used to join different types of metals, which can be challenging with other welding techniques.

What are disadvantages of TIG machines?

TIG machines have following limitations

  • Slower welding speed: Compared to MIG welders, TIG welding is a slower process due to the manual control of the filler metal.
  • More skill required: TIG welding requires more skill and practice to master than other welding techniques.
