Tungsten inert gas arc welding is a process in which the source of heat is an arc formed between a nonconsumable tungsten electrode and the work piece, and the molten puddle are protected from the atmospheric contamination with a gaseous shield of inert gas such as argon, helium or argon-helium mixture.
The demand for welding process such as tungsten metal arc welding, shielded arc welding, and metal gas arc welding is fueled by the need for construction to accommodate growth.
Welding is realized in normal temperature, without pre heating, with gas arc welding method with mixture gas 80%Ar+20%C[O.
