Titanium Industries has discovered over the past 40 years that many of our customers were familiar with welding metals, but not specifically the welding of titanium. Welding titanium is not difficult, but it does require techniques unique to the specific material.
The welding of titanium has been dominated by its affinity for atmospheric gases. Molten titanium reacts rapidly with oxygen and nitrogen and the need to prevent this has lead to the adoption of gas shielding precautions or the use of in-vacuum welding processes. Historically the most important process has been tungsten inert gas (TIG) welding.
Titanium Industries offers an instruction program for welding titanium that includes
- The differentiation between the various grades of titanium
- Weld wire grades
- Equipment required
- Weld preparation
- Welding technique
- Weld quality tests and checks
Titanium Industries offers Welding Instruction either at one of our worldwide locations, or on site to one or multiple personnel at our customer’s location.
