Micro TIG Welding – What is it and How Can I Use it?

Welding is not a homogeneous craft. It consists of a variety of different techniques and types. The blog below looks at micro TIG welding – what it is and how you can use it.

What is Micro TIG Welding?

Micro TIG welding is also referred to as Gas Tungsten Arc Welding. It uses electrical energy to produce a high-temperature (11,000F) concentrated Arc. This results in the melting of the designated metal at a specific point on the workpiece. The Arc formation only takes milliseconds before the welding process can be started.


Since micro TIG welding produces weld beads that can be as small as .020 in. wide, it is ideal for small and precise welds. You can apply it to both ferrous and non-ferrous metals for excellent results. Among the many applications of any micro welding service are:

  • Aerospace and defense industries: The repair and manufacturing of components

  • Electronic devices: Production of electronic parts and components.

  • Medical devices: Manufacturing of medical devices and surgical instruments.

  • Plastic Injection industry: Repair and revision of molds and dies.

  • Industrial machinery and devices: Repair and manufacturing of essential components including motor cases

This type of welding is also employed in producing and repairing items for jewelry, dentistry and optics. Research and development are other areas where micro TIG welding has proven to be effective and efficient.
