The Indirect Repair Welder will visually review a robotic welded tank for defects and repair these defects utilizing both TIG and MIG welding practices and equipment.

TIG uses a tungsten electrode that is non-consumable. In other words it does not burn up like an electrode in stick welding or the wire in metal inert gas (MIG) welding does. The tungsten acts as the torch: It generates heat, which melts the metal and/or filler metal. Thin metals can be joined by TIG welding without using filler metal. Joining thicker metals requires using an approximately 3-ft.-long filler rod of various diameters that is fed into the weld pool with one hand, while the torch is manipulated with the other.

Indirect repair welding requires TIG welding utilizing the existing metal. When large gaps are present the operator needs to revert to using the filler rod in order to fill in the gaps form the robot weld. Indirect welding is all stainless to stainless welding only, no other bi-metals are involved.
