With the application of K-TIG, welding jobs can be performed at incredible speeds, achieving a
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.
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.
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 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, keyhole TIG, large single pass welds (up to 16mm) significantly reduces welding time and consumable costs. K-TIG does not require edge

What are the typical welding speeds used in the K-TIG process? Depending on the type of material and the thickness of the material being used, the welding speeds will slightly differ.
