Alessi 9090: Weld

Read Article

Tungsten inert gas (TIG) welds and spot-welds join the molded parts. In TIG welding, the inert gas argon is blown out of a nozzle to surround a white-hot tungsten electrode at the tip of the welding torch. A skilled worker torches the edges to fuse them, while the argon stops atmospheric particles from weakening the bond.

  A worker at Alessi examines the two steel fittings that were spot-welded to the boiler body of the 9090. Tight tolerances are required to ensure that this closure forms an adequate seal with the upper container, if it doesn't, the unit will not function properly.
