Thread: Question from a non-welder

    Question from a non-welder

    Hi all, I'm not a welder but have a work-related project that could possibly incorporate welding. My question I believe is pretty straightforward. We work with titanium wire and have a need to join individual strands together to form electrical connections. The wire is ~18 gauge, solid core, and is uninsulated.

    Currently we make the connections simply by twisting the strands together but would like a faster and more reliable process. Soldering is of course not an option, but could we simply melt the strands together by welding? The results would have to be electrically conductive and non-corroding. If this sounds feasible, what kind of equipment/technique would be necessary? Thank you so much for your insight!

    The only way you are going to weld that is with a tig welder but I dont see it saving you and time and it will most definitely be more expensive.
