Tungsten inert gas welding, better known as TIG welding, is a welding technique that uses a non-consumable tungsten electrode. It is mainly used for welding thin sheets of steel or other non-iron alloys such as aluminium and copper. If used the right way, TIG welds are stronger than other weld types.
One disadvantage of using TIG welding is that it is not an easy technique to master. In fact, there are some common mistakes welders do that prevent them from getting the weld right. It is important that welders discover these common mistakes so they can make the necessary adjustments to have them corrected.
Recognizing the most common mistakes in TIG welding and learning the fixes for them can help welders get the most out of this technique and limit the waste of time, effort, and materials. The video on the next page shows some of the most common mistakes in TIG welding and the fixes for each of these mistakes.
