There are more than 30 types of welding processes, but the most popular are Stick Welding (SMAW), MIG Welding (Metal Inert Gas), and TIG Welding (Tungsten Inert Gas). 

Which welding process is best for your project? The type of welding process best suited for your specific needs is usually determined by the type of materials we’re trying to join together.

Below is a list of welding processes used at Gorski Welding, and a brief explanation of each.

GTAW, Gas Tungsten Arc (TIG)

Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW) is an arc welding process that is a favorite among experienced welders. It is a strong, flexible, and highly precise welding process that produces the most aesthetically pleasing welds, without splatter or waste.   ​  


GTAW uses an arc between a tungsten electrode and the weld pool. The process is used with shielding and without the application of pressure. The process may be used with or without the addition of filler metal.

Good for:


  • Aircraft and spacecraft construction

  • Automobile construction

  • Repair projects such as children’s metal wagons and antique metal cars, and aluminum tools

  • Art projects that rely on appearance
