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 [...]
