What is K-TIG?

K-TIG is a full-penetration welding technology designed to help fabricators to be more productive – by an order of magnitude.

K-TIG is a TIG/GTAW welding system capable of performing a traditional 6-hour TIG weld in 3 minutes, to a quality standard which meets the most demanding requirements of the nuclear, aerospace & defence industries.

What are the benefits?

K-TIG welding is up to100x faster than TIG/GTAW, reduces power and gas consumption by up to 95%, dramatically reduces labour costs and routinely delivers overall savings in excess of 90%.

K-TIG welding requires no edge bevelling of the materials, and eliminates the need for wire consumables by autogenously welding the parent materials in both pipe and plate.

GE Case Study

“K-TIG welding is a new productivity benchmark. It sets an entirely new bar for what can be achieved with an arc welding system. The speed, penetration, quality and overall savings generated by the process are extraordinary” - Attila Szabo, Principal Joining Engineer, GE. 


How K-TIG Works

K-TIG combines the high quality and cleanliness of GTAW with a depth of penetration that is unmatched by conventional gas-tungsten arc, gas metal arc or plasma welding processes.

The K-TIG keyhole which is opened through the joint is inherently stable, and operates over a very wide range of welding currents. Setup times are nominal and operation is extremely straightforward.

how does K-TIG compare? 

K-TIG is a high performance, full penetration variant of the TIG/GTAW process which delivers productivity previously only possible with expensive laser, hybrid laser and electron beam processes.

Unlike plasma arc welding, there is only one welding gas and no orifice, making the process exceptionally robust and welding procedures highly repeatable in a wide range of materials, thicknesses and applications.
