Fused metals had a hard time looking good before TIG welding. Although MIG welding does its job of combining tougher metals, it just can’t handle the demands for finer aesthetics and reliable versatility. Thanks to TIG welding, thinner metals used in industries like jewelry-making and dentistry can now be crafted without turning into metal nightmares.
TIG torch handles made of electrical-grade plastic protect against high-voltage shocks.
The TIG (Tungsten Inert Gas) technique utilizes non-consumable tungsten electrode and inert gas, argon usually, to weld reactive metals. It’s perfect for joining light metals such as aluminum, magnesium and copper alloys. TIG welding is way cleaner, more precise, and more versatile. It’s more difficult too, but with the right TIG welding supplies, you’re on the right path to good TIG hot work. First of the must-have welding supplies? The TIG torch.
As pointed out by Plant Services, knowledge of the different torch components can help you find the right TIG torch and spare you a lot of frustration, hassle, and replacement costs. Here are some of the important components you have to pay attention to when hunting for TIG torches: (more…)
