Whether you’re a beginner or a welding professional: it’s impossible to imagine everyday life without the technique of TIG welding. Whether it’s workpieces for your own home, workshop or business – tungsten inert gas (TIG for short) welding is one of the most important fusion welding processes. As a welder, you know best: in TIG welding, an arc is created between a non-melting electrode and the workpiece to be welded. A shielding gas, the inert gas, protects the weld seam from air access and the resulting defects.
The most important component for successful welding is the right welding electrode – usually made of tungsten. Already know which special electrode you need for your welding project?
Tips regarding the right welding electrode from Litty
TIG welding requires a high degree of skill and concentration. The arc is sensitive to movements and changes. It’s important that the welder has a good view of the welding piece. Only then will the weld succeed perfectly. And for that, you have to have the right welding electrode in your hands. We at Litty have created a sensation on the welding electrode market. With our universal and radiation-free electrodes from the Lymox® family. – Because it’s the pink one that makes the quality of your product perfect. And these are now also available as a DUO with a bevel on both sides.
Highest demands on the quality of the weld seam
TIG welding is suitable for welding high-alloy steels, nickel and titanium alloys. Day after day, millions of sheets, foils, blocks and other workpieces are welded worldwide and used in industries and trades. It’s important that the tip of the welding electrode is always well bevelled! Do you already know about our electrode bevelling service?

Good to know
Did you know that instead of WIG welding, in German you can also say TIG welding? Because the heavy metal known as “Wolfram” in German is called tungsten in international usage. And that’s where tungsten-inert-gas – TIG for short – welding comes from. We at Litty are the professionals when it comes to this unique and resistant tungsten material. Whether WIG or TIG ... Whatever you call it: welding success always depends on the right welding accessories. From ceramic gas nozzles to burner caps.
In TIG welding, the tungsten electrode is held in a stream of shielding gas, which ensures that it does not melt and retains its shape. The arc that is created between the electrode and the workpiece heats the workpiece and causes it to melt. The puddle of melt is then enclosed by the electrode and the shielding gas, creating a stable weld. TIG welding uses a direct power source, which is usually three-phase. The current is fed to the electrode via an electrode cable and to the workpiece via a ground cable.
The big advantage of TIG welding is that it is cleaner than other welding methods. There is no welding splatter, so less dirt and waste is produced. The advantages at a glance:
- Precise welding process
- Tight joint
- Concentrated arc
- Higher penetration
- Perfect quality
- Beautiful weld
- Ideal for visible seams
The shielding gas used in TIG welding can be argon, helium or a mixture of both. It is fed to the welding machine through a gas cylinder and a gas line and then passed to the electrode through an electrode holder.
As a family business, we are a strong team player. We work with passion to make our customers happy!
