TIG Welding

Most vessels will have an electric arc welding machine onboard that can perform

Manual Metal Arc Welding (MMAW), also referred to as stick electrode welding.
It is quite common that these machines will also be fitted with a mode nob that
can switch the machine over to perform Tungsten Inert Gas (TIG) welding. 

In this new article on the TE Andersen web site under Marine Welding Library we
provide the basics for TIG welding and its consumables including advantages and
disadvantages, where this process can be used, and how to properly set up a
welding power source for TIG welding.
