The Keyhole TIG welding system allows aerospace and defence engineers the freedom for enhanced creativity within the fabrication environment, due to the increased flexibility and capabilities of K-TIG over traditional welding techniques.
The deep penetration of a K-TIG weld allows up to 16mm joins to be bonded in a single pass. This means joins no longer need to be welded in multiple passes on both sides of the material.
Materials used in the aerospace engineering and defence industries need to be able to withstand extremely high temperatures. The only way some of these “exotic’’ materials – titaniums, zirconium and Inconels – can be welded is using TIG welding technology.
