Copper, a non-ferrous and malleable metal, has been used in metal fabrication since 3500 BC due to its versatility. It can be easily shaped, cut, bent, and joined with other metals using various welding methods. Its exceptional thermal and electrical conductivity, along with its high corrosion [...]
Tag: Gas Tungsten Arc Welding
TIG Welding, also known as Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW), is a process that includes the use of an electric arc combined with a TIG electrode. The electrode itself is made out of tungsten, meaning that it does not dissolve when welding. Old-timers used to refer to this method as Heliarc welding [...]
What are the lateral oscillation methods of manual tungsten arc welding torches? What are the characteristics of each? In many cases, a small lateral oscillation of the torch is required in order to obtain a wider weld path or to ensure a good fusion on both sides of the bevel. The frequency [...]
Confused by the different welding processes? We have explained each of the main 3 arc welding (Stick, TIG, and MIG Welding) processes and where and when you might use them.
