3 recommendations for a state-of-the-art Tig welding

Tig welding is a widely used process of sheet metal welding but, to be performed at its best, needs competent and skilled technicians, with a specific license, who can provide weldings that do not break after a short time and without any burrs or residuals. Here are some essential recommendations to perform effective and resistant Tig weldings.

 

1-    Maintain a fixed distance between the arc and the material

Tig welding is performed with an arc that, heating the material, makes possible the welding between the two components. In order to avoid any residual of the electrode on the welding surface, the Tig welding arc must be kept at a fixed distance from the sheet metal to be welded, so to obtain a uniform result without any imperfection.

 

2-    Make the filler rod advance regularly

Tig welding can be carried out with or without the filler material. In the case you choose to use a filler material, that must be made advance regularly, together with the welding arc, so to have a uniform deposit on the whole surface, resulting in a more resistant welding.

 

3-    Perform Tig welding in a workshop and/or in a protected environment, on perfectly cleaned surfaces

As Tig welding uses a gas to perform the process, it must be carried out in a workshop or in a protected environment. Outside, in fact, wind and breezes could influence the quality of Tig welding, making the oxygen in the air come in contact with the weld area. The latter will oxidize, influencing the advancement of the filler material, spoiling the whole process.
