TIG Welding St. Louis
At Pinnacle Metal Works & Contracting, we are all about welding. With more than 10 years of experience, we specialize in TIG welding services.
TIG (Tungsten Inert Gas) is a manual electric welding process that creates fusion energy between the metal and the wire-feeding material through a non-consumable tungsten electrode. TIG Welding has become a popular option for welding processes, as it is a highly sophisticated, versatile, and precise arc welding method. When a job requires high-quality, precision welding, no other welding process offers so many unique alloy and filler metal options.
We have experience welding for various metal projects, including pipes, gates, handrails, fences, staircases, and other commercial and residential projects. We provide onsite welding services to save you time and money. We take great pride in our work and are eager to work on your next welding project.
The TIG Welding Process
TIG, an acronym for tungsten inert gas, is a manual electric welding process that utilizes a burning arc to create fusion energy between the metal and the wire feeding or filler material with a non-consumable tungsten electrode.
The TIG welding process is comparatively slower than other welding methods. However, it produces the highest quality and most versatile bonds. TIG welding requires a welder to have a particular skill set, demanding immense focus, coordination, and precision.
A TIG welding machine depends on current from a steady power source to produce a welding arc, though the quality of the arc can be affected by the operator or machine components being used. For instance, tungsten is available in various compositions, depending on the desired results.
Industries and Applications
TIG welding is practical for almost any metal, including specialty alloys and exotic materials. Its precise and controlled application is necessary for precision joints and can be used on the following metals:
- Stainless steel
- Nickel alloys
Almost every industry uses TIG welding. When you need to weld a thin, exotic, or expensive piece of metal, your best option is TIG. This is because the method combines the manual placement of the filler material as well as a steady, predictable arc. This allows you to obtain any weld aesthetic you want.
Due to its versatility and inherent advantages, TIG welding is used in almost every industry. Some examples include the following sectors:
- Oil and gas
- Sheet metal
- Heavy fabrication projects
