Dabber TIG welding can be defined as a modification of an automatic TIG welding system. Modifications, both mechanical and electronic, combine to cause an intermittent filler wire feed to the molten weld puddle. This interrupted action allows for momentary cooling of the weld puddle. Energy input, as heat, for a given time span is reduced by this action. In addition the interruption allows solidification of the puddle with resultant narrow, uniform bead. This weld mode is characterized by shallow heat affected zones and precise weld build up configurations. This paper describes the application of this procedure to Gas Turbine Seals.
