How to Weld Titanium? The essential steps for titanium welding are similar to welding other metals but with a  few changes. Welding steel may require 30% preparation and 70% welding whereas it is  just   the   opposite   in   case   of  titanium   welding:   70%   preparation   and   30%   welding.  Titanium can be welded by any experienced welder if he can control certain important  elements.   Eliminating   the   impurities   on   the   material   is   first   and   foremost.   To   weld  titanium it is very important to clean the material in a proper way. This can be achieved  through chemical cleaning. All the surfaces must be cleaned in a proper way. The next factor to consider is the atmosphere. If air around titanium is contaminated there  may   be   certain   problems   in  welding.   You   can   overcome   this   problem   by   using  specialized   equipment.   Trailing   cups   can   be   used   for   short   jobs   but   for   production  purpose   vacuum   controlled   chamber   would   work.   Chamber   is   expensive   but   it   is   a  worthwhile investment. All these key elements are important for welding titanium in a  proper way. Welding titanium is a very expensive process; so it is not recommended for  anyone who may still be learning the art of welding.
