Processes for Welding Tanks & Pressure Vessels - K-TIG, GTAW and Plasma Welding

  The tank and pressure vessel market is worth USD$ 11 billion in the US alone. From food processing and fermentation, through to nuclear waste storage and pharmaceutical processing, vessels are used in a myriad of industries to both store and transfer liquids and gases under high pressure. Given th...

10 Tips to Improve the Quality of your Welding Process

                Superior quality welding processes deliver two distinct competitive advantages: weld integrity and welding repeatability. With the right processes in place, you should be able to consistently deliver strong, durable welds that are free from cracking, distortion, spatter, undercut, po...

How to Prepare for the Installation of New Welding Equipment

    The effort you invest into preparing for the installation of your new welding equipment will have a huge impact on the success of your project. It will dictate how quickly you can begin using (and therefore benefiting from) your new equipment, and ensure that best practices are learnt, deployed ...

Industrial Welding Processes - Advantages & Disadvantages

Historically, industrial welding processes joined metals by fusing filler material with the base metals being welded. Processes capable of being implemented on a semi-automatic basis for industrial welding processes, such as Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW), Submerged Arc Welding (SAW), Flux-cored Ar...

The Coming Workforce Crisis in Welding

The average age of welders in the UK and Australia has now eclipsed 55. In the US it has just crossed 57.

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.
