Carl von Linde developed modern refrigeration and was the first person to extract oxygen gas from the air, making it a commercially viable product and thus launching the industrial gas industry.

One company formed to use Linde’s later patents was the Linde Air Products Company, founded in Cleveland in 1907. In 1917 Linde Air Products joined with four other companies that produced acetylene, among other products, to form Union Carbide and Carbon Corporation. In 1992, Linde Air again became an independent company—Praxair.

Gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW) had its beginnings from an idea by C.L. Coffin to weld in a nonoxidizing gas atmosphere, which he patented in 1890. The concept was further refined in the late 1920s by H.M.Hobart, who used helium for shielding, and P.K. Devers, who used argon. It was perfected in 1941, patented by Meredith, and named Heliarc welding. It was later licensed to Linde Air Products, where the water-cooled torch was developed. The gas tungsten arc welding process has become one of the most important.

Tungsten has the second highest melting point out of all the elements. The element that takes first is carbon. tungsten is used for light bulb fillaments, jet turbines, and jewelry. Due to its high melting point and density, it is ideal for TIG welding.

when first striking your arc you must build up your puddle. The puddle is a little pool of the base metal and filler metal. Once you've built up your puddle you can start to weld.

"TIG can be used to weld copper, titanium."Tig welding can be used to even weld dissimilar metals. Tig welding is incredibly useful when doing difficult welds. You can customize your torch to suite different situations.

Franl J Pilia, who worked in the Linde Labs , invented and patented the water cooled TIG torch. He Ffiled his patent in 1946. In 1951 Arthur P. Scheller innovated Pilias design by making it more maneuverable.

In addition to numerous torch patents, Linde developed systems to improve shielding and allow the tungsten electrode to protrude further from the gas cup for better visibility while still providing the needed excellent shielding. Another colleague, Gene Gorman, invented the first “gas lens” as it was referred to in his patent filed April 1960.
Trevor Lilja's comment, May 4, 2014 4:11 PM
As Gorman notes in the patent teaching, very small holes produced a longer coherent gas stream substantially without Turbulence. One material mentioned was a 200 mesh screen. This produced much better shielding than the porous bronze type materials he evaluated. When Gorman tested porous bronze materials he found the gas leaving this type of materials exited in various directions creating a more Turbulent gas stream.

When TIG welding was introduced around the 1940’s Helium gas was the primary shielding gas used in process. The term Heliarc welding was the common phrase used back in the day. Most of the older welders still call it heliard to this day.

TIG welding can be used to weld many types of metals. Tig is mainly used when welding aluminum or thinner metals. It's very popular in the automotive industry and has brought tig welding into the limelight. most welders when asked would say their favorite welding process is tig.
