TIG Welding Services
Maine Welding Company is a leading provider of TIG welding services.
TIG welding (Tungsten Inert Gas) welding or Gas Tungsten Arc welding (GTAW) is a clean, high quality welding process. TIG welding is the most popular choice of welding processes when high quality, precision welding is desired or required. It enables greater control over the weld area than other welding processes and can produce high quality welds when performed by skilled operators. Maximum weld quality is assured by maintaining cleanliness.
In TIG welding an arc is formed between a non-consumable tungsten electrode and the metal being welded. Gas is supplied through the TIG torch to shield the tungsten electrode and molten weld pool. If filler wire is used, it is added to the weld pool separately.
TIG Welding Services Benefits
- Superior quality weld beads
- Long-term cost effectiveness
- Inherent corrosion resistance
- Welds can be made with or without filler metal
- Precise control of welding variables
- Clean weld areas, free of spatter
- Lower heat affected zone and metal distortion
TIG Welding produces a concentrated welding arc
The TIG welding arc is concentrated and able to be fine tuned, which enables pin point accuracy and complete control of heat input to the work piece, resulting in a much smaller heat-affected zone.

Titanium TIG Welding
One of the greatest advantages of TIG welding is that it enables the welding of more kinds of metals and metal alloys than any other arc welding process. TIG welding can be used to weld most metals, including aluminum, magnesium, copper, brass, bronze, stainless steel, nickel alloys like titanium, and even gold. Utilizing the TIG welding process you can also weld dissimilar metals to each other, like copper to brass and stainless steel to mild steel.
While the aerospace industry is one of the primary users of TIG welding services, our TIG welding services are used in a number of other areas. Many industries use TIG welding services for welding thin work pieces, especially nonferrous metals. TIG welding services are used extensively in the manufacture of space vehicles, and are also frequently employed when welding small-diameter, thin-wall tubing such as those used in the bicycle industry. In addition, TIG welding is often used to make root or first pass welds for piping of various sizes.
