Tig Welding- Techniques That Really Work Powered By Docstoc
					TIG welding is a welding procedure that brings into play non-consumable inert gas
and tungsten electrode. The inert gas is utilized as a screen to avoid atmospheric
pollution in the course of this kind of welding. The real welding takes place through
extremely ionized gas recognized as plasma and metal vapors. As a result of energy
produced from a constant current power supply in this method of welding, plasma is
formed.

Certainly, TIG welding is one of the most complicated abilities to become skilled at.
This type of welding needs outstanding hand and eye synchronization. In addition,
you need high-quality sense of balance together with the aptitude to make use of both
of your hands simultaneously.

Anyone who has experienced Tig Welding recognizes that the TIG weld excellence is
very reliant on keeping the quality and shape of the tungsten tip. Weld set up data is
significant with automatic TIG welding applications. Tungsten life is enhanced with a
start rise up from a low current start point then rise to the operating current.

Expert TIG welders have their own share of secrets on why they succeed in this kind
of critical industry. They are acquainted with everything about TIG welds because
they know how to solve and balance issues, keep their hands fixed, and produce a
dreadfully consistent weld. TIG welding system leans the torch on the weld joint. The
moment the cup is bending on the weld joint, the operator begins the arc. After that,
the torch knob is twisted from side to side like a ratchet rotating a bolt. The moment
metal starts; the filler wire is either walked over or dipped.

There are a lot of advantages to using this "walking the cup" system for anybody who
is interested in this kind of welding. The main advantage is a consistent outline that
creates dependable weld diffusion. By the time a welder is taught of this method, their
welds will be constantly very similar. There is less space for general hand shaking and
slips. One more advantage is the control of the arc length. Arc length is a huge topic
when it comes to welding generally. The majority of weld imperfections that are
caused by inappropriate TIG weld procedure are connected to arc length. If you
mastered "walking the cup", your arc length must be tremendously short and reliable
always. This aids to keep away from under-cutting and provides the weld an even
outline. Indisputably, you have to study how to "walk the cup" if you desire to TIG
weld like an expert.
