Tungsten Alloy Welding Rod

Tungsten Alloy Welding Rod Picture

Tungsten alloy welding rod is one of tungsten alloy rod's usages. In TIG (Tungsten Inert Gas) welding, an arc is drawn between a non-consumable tungsten electrode and the workpiece. The electrode, the arc and the weld-pool are protected from the atmosphere with an inert shielding gas. For manual welding the hard-facing material is in the form of a rod. Advantages of the TIG process include simple manual operation and good control of the welding arc. The process can also be mechanised, in which case a manipulator is used to move the workpiece in relation to the welding torch and the hard-facing rod or wire. Rods are also used for hard-facing with the oxy-acetylene welding process. With the correct operation, a very low level of iron dilution can be achieved in the overlay.
