Experience true weld control and precision with TIG (Tungsten Inert
Gas) welding. The TIG process lets you weld thinner material than
other processes. If you want to solve problems related to burn-through
or warping when Stick or wire welding, TIG might be the solution.
TIG also provides excellent fusion. While it’s hard to learn, takes
a lot of skill and is slow, the quality of a TIG weld bead meets the
needs of aerospace, power piping and other critical applications. TIG
also produces the best looking weld beads, which is why it is often
specified when cosmetic appearances really count — and why TIG
welding operators are considered the artists of the welding world.
