Duplex & Super Duplex Welding | Your Questions, Queries & Concerns Answered

Duplex and super duplex belong to a family of stainless steels that are characterised by a combination of easy fabrication, high strength and excellent corrosion resistance. This group of materials is most similar to ferritic and carbon steel, but it has some physical properties in line with those f...

Stainless Steel Welding Made Easy

Stainless steel is a popular material choice for the fabrication industry. It offers strength, durability and renowned resistance to corrosion (hence the term “stainless” or no rust). However, stainless steel welding does pose a few challenges, particularly compared to mild steel. Welding stainless ...

The Top 8 Welding Quality Issues Found by Welding Inspectors (And How K-TIG Can Help Overcome Them)

  The production of high quality, highly repeatable welds is the priority of any fabricator or workshop. The importance of welding quality control cannot be underestimated—it is often a question of structural and public safety rather than mere aesthetics. In some instances, the failure of a poor qua...

How to Weld Nickel Alloys Like A Pro

  Nickel alloys are usually selected due to their excellent versatility, corrosion resistance and performance under high temperatures. Not surprisingly, this makes nickel alloys a popular choice for use in extreme environments, particularly in aircraft turbines, steam turbines, nuclear power plants,...

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.
