Introduction to TIG Welding (2 Day Course), Walsall College, Monday, 28. January 2019

This course is ideal for anyone who want to learn the fundamental aspects of welding with TIG equipment.
TIG welding is a slower process compared to MIG, but it produces a more precise weld and can be used at lower amperages for thinner metal, as well as exotic metals.
Although it requires more time to learn, TIG welding is a skill worth having in the engineering field. It’s a popular choice of welding, particularly when high quality, precision welding is required.
This basic introduction programme will take place at the College's Portland Street Campus over two evenings.
The next available sessions will start on;
Monday 28th January 2019 with the second evening of the course being delivered on Tuesday 29th January 2019 or Tuesday 7th May 2019 with the second evening of the course being delivered on Wednesday 8th May 2019.
Each session is approximately 3 and a half hours and is expected to run from 17:30 until 21:00
 You will need to bring safety footwear (steel toe cap boots) and work clothes. All other equipment will be provided.
If for any reason the course does not run on the specified dates, we'll contact you before the event and payment will be refunded in full.
Characteristics of the TIG welding process

Uses a non-consumable tungsten electrode during the welding process,
Uses a number of shielding gases including helium (He) and argon (Ar),
Is easily applied to thin materials,
Produces very high-quality, superior welds,
Welds can be made with or without filler metal,
Provides precise control of welding variables (i.e. heat),
Welding yields low distortion,
Leaves no slag or splatter.

In TIG welding, an arc is formed between a non-consumable tungsten electrode and the metal being welded. Gas is fed through the torch to shield the electrode and molten weld pool. If filler wire is used, it is added to the weld pool separately.
