Process TIG welding (Tungsten Inactive Gas)
TIG welding is used for high quality welds with good surface finish, mainly on metals like stainless steel, aluminium, titanium and magnesium.

In TIG welding, the arc is generated by a non-consumable tungsten electrode, and filler materials is externally supplied. TIG welding is easier to control than MIG, but has a higher cost.
