Gas tungsten arc welding GTAW, also known as tungsten inert gas TIG welding, is an arc welding process that uses a tungsten electrode to produce the weld. The weld area and electrode is protected from oxidation or other atmospheric contamination by an inert shielding gas (argon or helium) and a filler metal is normally used. TIG welding is most commonly used to weld thin sections of stainless steel and non-ferrous metals such as aluminium, magnesium, and copper alloys. The process grants the operator greater control over the weld than competing processes such as shielded metal arc welding and gas metal arc welding, allowing for stronger, higher quality welds. However, TIG welding is comparatively more complex and difficult to master and furthermore, it is significantly slower than most other welding techniques.
We at Universal Coolers have the necessary skillset and equipment to perform TIG welding on aluminium, stainless steel and mild steel. We have the knowledge and experience to take on small and medium size projects, whether it is 1 off prototypes or a production run.
