K-TIG is up to 100x faster than TIG/GTAW and can weld 10-inch, schedule 40 stainless steel pipe in just 3 minutes. (Thickness - 3/8 inch | 9.5mm, Diameter - 10-inch | 250mm)
K-TIG technology revolutionises multi-hour conventional TIG welds meeting the most demanding requirements of the nuclear, aerospace & defence industries.
K-TIG supports customers to weld at 8x the penetration of GTAW and typically 2x the penetration of Plasma Arc Welding (PAW).
Productivity & Profitability
In addition to 50x to 100x speed advantages over TIG/GTAW, K-TIG users are able to greatly reduce power and gas consumption by up to 95%, dramatically reducing labour costs.
K-TIG easily handles longitudinal and circumferential welds on pipes, plates, vessels, tanks and many other applications. The technology does not require edge bevelling, and requires only a simple square butt joint. With no root gap is required, K-TIG can also be used to weld into all standard edge preparations. It can also be used in a single bevel weld joint configuration, suitable to process pipe welding applications.
