Aluminum Welding FAQs - lincolnelectric
For both TIG Welding (Gas Tungsten Arc Welding or GTAW) and MIG Welding (Gas Metal Arc Welding or GMAW) use pure argon for aluminum materials up to ½" in thickness. Above ½" in thickness, operators may add anywhere between 25 to 75 percent helium to make the arc hotter and increase weld penetration.

Aluminum Gas Welding: The Basics - Weld Guru
12/12/2019· Oxyhydrogen welding permits a wider range of gas pressures than acetylene without losing the desired slightly reducing flame. Aluminum from 1/32 to 1 in. (0.8 to 25.4 mm) thick may be gas welded. Heavier material is seldom gas welded, as heat dissipation is so rapid that it is difficult to apply sufficient heat with a torch.

TIG welding without filler? - Miller Welding Discussion …
welding without filler fusion welding without filler is fine but it doesnt give you much strength,you can tack things togeather but if you want speed and your fit up is good try and go with the 1 16 filler instead and lay the filler in the gap and run it over quickly with your arc a little hotter.
Mig Welding Aluminum with a Spool Gun
The spool gun is slightly less maneuverable than a conventional mig gun but the trade off is worth it in being able to consistently feed aluminum wire without nesting every few minutes. 100 % argon gas is usually the gas of choice but mixtures like 50/50 argon/helium can be helpful for welding thick sections.Make sure the polarity is connected properly. mig welding aluminum requires

What is TIG Welding? - SmarterCMS602DV
TIG Welding, also known as Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW), is a process that joins metals by heating them with an arc between a tungsten electrode (non-consumable) and the work piece. The process is used with a shielding gas and may also be used with or without the addition of filler metal.
