TIG Welding - Tungsten inert gas (TIG) welding is a form of arc welding that uses a non-consumable tungsten electrode. Most commonly used to weld thin sections of material. This application is also used to weld thick metals together. This process is also used for exotic metals.

Pipe Welding - This type of welding simplest and most cost-effective way of connecting two or more pieces of pipe.
