Category Description

<p>Find and buy TIG (Tungsten Inert Gas) welding machines from verified suppliers on IndustrySearch. A TIG welds metals by forming an electric arc between a non-consumable tungsten electrode and the workpiece metals, shielding the weld with an<a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shielding_gas"> inert shielding gas</a> while the operator manually feeds the weld with a consumable metal filler rod.</p> <p>Things to consider when buying a TIG welding machine:</p> <p><strong>Know your application</strong> - Important factors to know before getting started, are the types of materials you need to weld, material gauge (thickness), welding speed &amp; productivity requirements, cost constraints, portability needs and environment conditions.</p> <ul> <li><strong>Choose AC, DC or combined output</strong> - To weld aluminium or magnesium an AC output TIG welding machine is required, while for steel and stainless steel a DC only output TIG is sufficient. TIG welding machines that offer both AC and DC output are available, for welding a variety of metals.</li> <li><strong>Consider the pulses per second for AC TIG welding machines</strong> - AC TIG is the method of choice for welding applications requiring accurate heat control, and the greater the settings range of pulses per second a TIG offers, the more accurate the heat control is for welding aluminium, magnesium or thin sectioned delicate parts.</li> <li><strong>Choose for appropriate duty cycle</strong> - Duty cycle indicates how many minutes out of 10, a TIG welding machine will continuously operate at full power. TIG welding machines for welding small joints that each requires some setup time, can have a duty cycle as low as 20%. But for heavier continuous welding operations a high enough duty cycle is required, to avoid overheating issues and welding downtimes.</li> <li><strong>Consider a multi-use TIG</strong> - TIG welding machines offering multiple capabilities along with welding are available, such as&nbsp;<a href="https://www.industrysearch.com.au/buy/arc-welder">arc welding</a> and<a href="https://www.industrysearch.com.au/buy/plasma-cutter"> plasma cutting</a>, significantly expanding the machine&rsquo;s field of application.</li> </ul> <p><br /> Contact our vendors for a free quote or expert advice on TIG welding machines.
