Top 5 Beginners Tips for Using the TIG Welding Machine
Welding is used in various industries, including manufacturing processes. The TIG welding machine is a welding machine that uses the process of melting the metal by heating that is by conducting the current via tungsten bar. In the welding process, the tungsten electrodes are used to deliver current to the welding arc using an electric torch. Holding torch and filler rod through the weld puddle, and welding is protected and cooled by the inert argon gas. Pure argon gas, argon gas mixture with helium, or with hydrogen is used commonly in TIG Welding machine or argon welding machine (ตู้ เชื่อม อาร์กอน, which is the term in Thai). Tungsten Insert Gas welding machine is used households, constructions, production of stainless steel barrels, pipe and other metals welding. Tungsten Insert Gas(TIG) machines are used to weld all types of metals including Stainless steel, Aluminum, Brass, Copper, and Titanium, etc. TIG welding machines give excellent control over welds and produces clean and finished welding. If you are a beginner to the TIG welding, then you must be cautious while working with it as it has high heat arcs and gases. You must ensure following all safety protocols and methods while using TIG welding torch. Here are a few tips for that can help you work with TIG welding machine if you are a beginner.
Wear Your Safety Gears
You must ensure that you are protecting your body using safety gears that are available for the welding process. Jackets, gloves, helmet, welding glasses (แว่นตา เชื่อม, term in Thai) aprons, sleeve, pants, and shoe covers are the safety gears that you must wear while working with TIG welding machine.
Weld in Well-Ventilated or Open Space
Fresh air and open space will help you not to be exposed to toxic fumes and gases.
Make sure to ground your welding equipment
Ground your equipment properly because improperly grounded equipment can produce electric shock during welding.
Clean your equipment and keep your work area dry
Make sure to clean and brush your equipment so that all the left oil and other particles do not interrupt or interact while welding. Clean all the impurities from the metal surface so that it cannot affect the quality of the weld.
Select the Right and Correct level current for welding
According to your metal and electrode, you need to determine and use the right current. You can test the current on a scrap of the metal to use how it works. Your test and practice on scrap can help you weld precisely and correctly.
