TIG Welding Stainless Steel Basics

In comparison with the welding of mild steel, for example, the austenitic stainless steels have several characteristics that require some revision of welding procedures that are considered standard for mild steel. The melting point of the austenitic grades stainless steels is lower, so less heat is required to produce fusion. 300 Series stainless steel electrical … Read more

Tig Welding Stainless Steel

Known as 300 series, austenitic stainless steels are the most commonly welded. These chrome nickel steels, in contrast to lower-cost stainless have more alloys and are “non magnetic” (Exception, types 310 – 330). Austenitic grades of stainless steel typically contain a minimum of 16-26% chromium and 6-22% nickel. 308 Grade stainless steel, for example, is … Read more

TIG Welding Advantages

One of the greatest advantages of  TIG welding, (Tungsten Inert Gas) welding or Gas Tungsten Arc welding (GTAW) process is that it will weld 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 … Read more

TIG Welding Aluminum With Alternating Current

Characteristics Of TIG Welding Aluminum With Alternating Current (AC) Process Welding aluminum by the gas tungsten arc welding process using alternating current produces an oxide cleaning action. Argon shielding gas is used. Better results are obtained when welding aluminum with alternating current by using equipment designed to produce a balanced wave or equal current in … Read more

Welding Copper

Copper and copper-base alloys have specific properties which make them widely used. Their high electrical conductivity enables their use in the electrical industries, and the corrosion resistance of certain alloys makes them very useful in the process industries. Copper alloys are also widely used for friction or bearing applications. Copper can be welded satisfactorily with either … Read more

How to TIG Weld Stainless Steel Effectively: Preventing Carbide Precipitation

In order to effectively TIG weld stainless steel, it is important to consider carbide precipitation TIG Weld Stainless Steel : Carbide Precipitation What is Carbide Precipitation? Carbide precipitation occurs when the chrome and carbon in 300 series stainless steel are drawn out of the material and react to the atmosphere. It occurs between 800 to 1650 … Read more

TIG Welding Aluminum DC Electrode Negative

Does your TIG welding machine have enough amperage to weld thick Aluminum? Are you tired of pre-heating only to find that your tungsten cannot withstand the constant AC arc? Direct Current Electrode Negative (DCEN) or DC(-) TIG welding Aluminum. There are no shortcuts or forgiveness when it comes to welding Aluminum, especially thin material.DC(-) TIG welding Aluminum does … Read more

Tig Welding Aluminium

The TIG (Tungsten Inert Gas) arc welding process is used for welding the thinner sections of aluminum and aluminum alloys. There are several precautions that should be mentioned with respect to using this process. Alternating current is recommended for general-purpose work since it provides the half-cycle of cleaning action. Table 7-22 provides welding procedure schedules for using … Read more
