Welcome To K-TIG

With the application of K-TIG, welding jobs can be performed at incredible speeds, achieving a 6 hour TIG weld in under 3 minutes - just 1% of the time normally required!


 

 

K-TIG on Stainless Steel | All you questions answered 

K-TIG welding technology combines the high-quality and cleanliness of GTAW to deliver incomparable welding jobs, unmatched by other welding processes. K-TIG use stainless steel, along with most corrosion resistant and exotic materials for completing welds.

 

 

How to set up for a K TIG Weld | Keyhole TIG

Procedure development for K-TIG usually takes only a few hours, meaning that welding can commence within the first day of installation of the welding automation technology.

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.

 

 

Side by side comparison of K-TIG & Manual TIG 

In recent times there has been a shift in arc welding technology that provides over 100x productivity gains over GTAW.

K-TIG welding delivers extremely clean, high-quality, ripple-free welds that achieve 70% to 90% productivity gains and costs savings relative to GTAW.

 

 

K-TIG Welding Times using Pipe Animation | Keyhole TIG Welding 

K-TIG provides order-of-magnitude increases in productivity, with welding speeds up to 100x faster than conventional TIG/GTAW welding.

Depending on the thickness and type of material, welding times will vary. The K-TIG system performs welds of up to 5/8 inch (16mm) thickness in a single full penetration pass.

K-TIG’s incredibly fast welding times result in dramatic reductions in labor costs, welding cycle times, rework and repair costs, gas and power consumption. 

 

 

K-TIG vs TIG on Heavy Gauge Material Animation | Keyhole TIG Welding 

K-TIG’s full penetration range is up to 12mm to 16mm. If it’s thicker than K-TIG's maximum penetration, outstanding productivity benefits are realised by welding a deep full-penetration root pass, with the additional benefits of a smaller v-prep left to fill.

K-TIG, keyhole TIG, large single pass welds (up to 16mm) significantly reduces welding time and consumable costs. K-TIG does not require edge bevelling, and requires only a simple square butt joint. No root gap is required.
