Micro TIG welding – "touch start" low voltage, low noise operation

Posted by Mark Boyle on Tue, Aug 23, 2016 @ 12:30 PM

This fourth installment in our multi-part series exploring micro pulse arc welding  (micro TIG welding)  focuses on “Touch Start” technology, which requires much lower voltage than the standard DC start system. Low voltage operation means no high frequency noise emission.

Micro TIG welding – What is it and how can I use it?

Posted by Mark Boyle on Thu, Jul 14, 2016 @ 12:30 PM

Today, we are embarking on a 7-part series exploring pulsed micro tungsten inert gas (TIG) welding, also known as micro pulse arc welding. In our first installment, I’ll cover general features of a pulsed micro TIG system, and review the welding applications for which it is best suited. Later blog posts will cover setup tips, improving TIG results, touchstart, pulsation, monitoring, and safety.

Material processing solutions for manufacturing – one size does not fit all

Posted by Barbara Kuntz on Tue, Jul 12, 2016 @ 12:30 PM

You heard it here first: there is no single materials processing technology that fits all applications. Manufacturers looking for a robust, production-ready solution must follow a rigorous process to determine the best choice of equipment. There are no short cuts or magic wands – you have to carefully review process feasibility and part design to maximize production reliability. The evaluation must also consider overall system needs.

Micro TIG Welding: what is it and what can you do with it?

Posted by Mark Boyle on Tue, Jun 17, 2014 @ 02:07 PM

Miyachi America is best known for its resistance and laser welding technologies. To complement these well-established processes, Micro TIG welding was recently added to our product line. The Micro TIG process expands our process offering, particularly for materials such as copper. This blog veers away from our normal, application specific format to provide a quick introduction to the Micro TIG process:

Battery pack welding: which technology for your job?

Posted by Geoff Shannon on Thu, Feb 06, 2014 @ 10:46 AM

"Ugh - my battery just died!" "Can I use your charger?" "Mind if I recharge my phone?"  Batteries are everywhere, and we've become increasingly dependent on them in many aspects of our daily lives: portable electronic devices, cordless power tools, energy storage, and hybrid and EV cars. Thus, the demand to manufacture batteries that meet or exceed quality and production requirements for these products, is great.

Resistance spot welding, micro TIG welding, and laser welding processes all enable high quality volume production.  The selection of one technology over another is usually made based on the application's specific requirements and the alignment of the technology to these needs.
