TIG stands for Tungsten Inert Gas; this is because a tungsten electrode combined with an inert gas (argon) is used for this welding method. TIG welders are used in industry for precise welding. A tungsten electrode is used to strike an arc that allows welding of all materials. You can use a TIG welding machine to weld mild steel, stainless steel & aluminium. Aluminium TIG welding requires an AC welding output that can only be found on an AC DC TIG welder. This type of welder is usually more expensive than a standard DC only TIG welding machine. However, if you plan on welding aluminium at any point it is always best to plan ahead and buy an AC DC TIG welder. TIG welding is also known as Gas Tungsten Arc Welding and is known as the "cleanest" welding process.
