2006 - TIG Welding of Precious Metal

0.00

Tungsten Inert Gas Welding is a widely preferred method of joining metal in a large number of industries. Though the automated form is used for continuous welding of precious metal tubing by some manufacturers, the manual method has been overlooked by most silver-, gold- and platinum-smiths for 50 years. With the general acceptance and application of laser and pulse-arc welding, it is time to look at the uses of this common technology. This presentation will examine the use of modern inverter TIG welding machines in the repair and fabrication of precious metal jewelry. The discussion will cover the practicality, implementation, adaptability and uniqueness of this process as a solution for small shops and large manufacturers.
