What are K-TIG’s Advantages Over Laser Beam Welding (LBW)?
Laser Beam Welding (LBW) is a welding technique used to join a
K-TIG is similar to laser welding only to the extent that both processes open a ‘keyhole’ through the full thickness of the joint. K-TIG achieves this at a small fraction of the cost of a laser welding system and requires no specialist skills to operate it or maintain it.
K-TIG is also much more tolerant of irregularities in fit-up, compared with Laser welding which has virtually zero tolerance to irregular fit-up.
The Benefits of Switching
How does K-TIG overcome the issues of LBW Welding?
K-TIG overcomes the most common issues associated with LBW:
I’m currently using Laser Beam Welding; can I switch to K-TIG?
Users of LBW can easily switch to LBW if they want to cut costs and increase productivity. The K-TIG system can just be incorporated into your LBW system. If you’re using an LBW system you’ll definitely have the scale of demand to reap all the benefits of a switch.
How Do I Change to K-TIG?
It really couldn’t be easier.
If you’re currently using laser beam welding, the upgrade process is simple. Your existing welding automation system can still be used.
Literally all you have to do is setup the K-TIG system, and integrate the controller into your existing automation system.
