What Is A TIG Welding Machine and Why Would You Need One?

A TIG welding machine offers a lot of benefits over a typical laser cutting or arc welding machine. In this article, we will look at the various characteristics and advantages that this machine has over other machines. Once armed with this information it should be possible to easily see why a TIG machine could be much more effective in many situations than a typical type of welding machine. The electrodes are made up of tungsten so that when an electric current is applied to the weld it creates heat which melts the solder.

Functions of TIG Welding Machine

A TIG weld can have additional functions added onto it as well, but the important thing to remember is that these functions must be specific to each type of machine. One example of an additional function is what is called the “stabilizer”. This is used with gas welding machines so that they can maintain their arc while other machines are not operating. In the past, this function would require an inverter so that the machine could also regulate its voltage, but with this welder, the inverter is not needed because the current regulation is already done by the weld itself. There are many variations on this particular function, and some will do more functions than others, but having the ability to make the TIG welding machine do more things gives the user more options in the welding process.

TIG Welding Machine

Finally, one of the things that most TIG welders will be able to use is a ninety-degree welding machine, which has a ninety percent duty cycle. This cycle is just how often the welder is going to be able to complete one complete weld without stopping for a break. This welding machine that has this kind of duty cycle will be more expensive to purchase, but it is well worth it. It is possible to find these kinds of welders for sale on auction websites, but there are also places that you can purchase them through directly from the manufacturer. You should always take care of your equipment, especially when you buy one of the higher quality models, but with a good TIG welder, this welding machine will last for years. You should expect to pay a little bit more money upfront, but the money that you put into the equipment will return to you tenfold over the years, making it a good investment in the long run.

Features of TIG welding Machine

The TIG welder generally has a larger power supply, and it also has a better electrode holder than the normal ac model. The ac ones generally do not have the best design when it comes to holding the electrodes in place, so they are not as functional if you are doing any serious welding work. If you are buying the TIG welding machine because you need something to hold your electrodes in while you weld, then you should look at the options that you have for both the power supply and the electrode holder and pick the one that best suits your needs.
