Process Description Tungsten Inert Gas Welding (GTAW) is an arc welding process in which an arc is established between the non-consumable Tungsten electrode and work-piece. In TIG welding process, the electrode is not consumable but rather it supplies the electrical current and directs it towards the arc area. In this process, electrode can be used with and without the filler metal. Since there is no slag in TIG welding process, the electrode, the work-piece surface and filler metal need be protected by an inert shielding gas such as Helium, Argon, Hydrogen or a combination of them to avoid their contamination and faults. This process is also referred to as TIG and GTAW. In workshop terminology, Tungsten Inert Gas Welding process is recognized as Argon welding.

Electric Current

Welding Amperage is considered as the most significant variable in this process. The higher the welding amperage is, the higher penetration depth of electric arc and molten material will be. If the electric current is a direct current (DC), the electric Tungsten can be connected to the negative or positive terminal of power source. This has been illustrated in the above picture.

Direct Current-Electrode Negative:

This state is called straight polarity and is very common in Tungsten Inert Gas Welding (GTAW). Electrode is connected to the negative terminal of power source. As we can see in the above picture, electrons are emitted from Tungsten Electrode and are accelerated passing through the electric arc.

Direct Current-Electrode Positive:

This state is called reverse polarity where the electrode is connected to the positive terminal of power source. In these conditions, the thermal effect of electrons is much more in Tungsten electrode than the work-piece since electron bombardment is towards electrode. Therefore, it is necessary to prevent electrode tip from being melted. The positive ions bombard the work-piece surface causing the oxide shells on the work-piece break down. This can be used for welding materials with hard oxide layers such as aluminum and Magnesium. The method for cleaning the work-piece surface is shown in the following picture.

Alternating Current (AC):

In this process, the penetration and cleaning oxide layers from work-piece surfaces can be performed effectively. This method can be used for welding aluminum.
