The Criteria Select the Tig Equipment
The selection criteria for any tool, technical or non-technical entr=irely depends on your need. The matching of the needs with the available properties to fulfill the needs will result in the form of the perfect tool for your needs to work with.
Some criteria that are used for the selection of the TiG welding equipment are:
The shape of the electrode
The use of the electrode is subjected to be in the proper shape and size. This is necessary for the electrode to fit it into the electrode cap. Some jobs can be done only with the electrode of a specific type. This electrode must be of specific size and shape
The electrode can easily be converted into a specific shape. The equipment used for this specific purpose is a hammer, pliers, and wire cutters. Two shapes are generally used the first is the square and the second is the blunted edge.
Working with the DCSP type of current a sharpened edge electrode in the shape of pointed nib is needed. If you are working with the AC type of the current then you will need the electrode with the rounded edge.
The amperage of welding Machine
This is the output capacity of the current. The power with which the machine will weld the metals and create a joint between the metals. High amperage is required for the heavier metals. On the same hand, this high amperage will destroy the surface of the thinner metals too.
Depending on the metals to work with you should select the amperage of the welding machine. The good thing is that the welding machines with multiple output amperage are available. You may select the desired output level to work with.
Type of Current of the welding Machine
The popular choice is the DC current for the welding machine. Although not as popular as the DC current the AC current machine has its specific edges too. Especially some specific metals can only be welded through the AC current machines only.
A good thing is that machines with variable current choices are available. You may choose to work with your desired one. In this way, you can take the benefit of the functionalities of both.
The Gas to be used in The welding machine
Three Different types of gases are available to be used in the welding machines. Check if the welding machine can work with your desired type of gas or not. The Gas details are available in this article

Optional Features through Additional Accessories
If you buy additional accessories you can take the benefit of many optional features. These optional features can help you to do the welding easily. Some examples of these accessories are foot rheostat, arc timer, and water circulating systems.
The foot rheostat is used to control the current at the run time. This means that you can control the flow of the current during the process of welding. The water circulation system helps you to cool down the machine. As rapidly as the machine cools down the next process of the welding can be started easily.
If the water cooling down unit is automatic. The water flow will be automatically started as soon as the temperature reaches near the critical point. As soon as the temperature decreases to reach well in the safe zone the flow of the water will be stopped.
