How to Solve 10 Common TIG Welding Problems

2021-4-13 · To troubleshoot gas contamination issues, check the gas cylinder label to be sure you’re using the right type of gas for TIG welding, generally 100 percent argon (or perhaps an argon/helium blend for thick aluminum). Attempting to weld with an argon/carbon dioxide mix (commonly used for MIG welding) will cause immediate contamination.

TIG Welding Mistakes When To Troubleshoot

2020-5-11 · Unlike stick and MIG welding, TIG isn’t very tolerant of mill scale and oily surfaces. You must remove all mill scale and debris to achieve an optimum TIG weld. This means using a grinder or other abrasives to get down to raw material. If you leave any mill scale or oil on the metal, your welds will suffer and they won’t be very strong.

Why Your TIG Welder Won’t Arc (With Fixes)

Once again, remember that TIG welding uses gas. If your TIG welder isn’t throwing an arc, there may be some issues with the gas hoses. The gas hoses may have cuts or kinks, or may not be secured properly. This could affect your TIG welder properly throwing an arc because air sneaking into the gas flow is a contaminant in TIG welding. Fix

Why does my TIG electrode melt? Welding

In TIG welding, electrones are travelling between the electrode and the workpiece through a so called arc. This arc is a plasma that allows the electrodes to travel. Note that the shilding gas you are using is helping to create this plasma, and makes it much easier to form than in “regular” air. The electrodes can either flow from the torch
