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 ...

A New Start with K-TIG | by Chris Bayly, Boilermaker & Welder

Not long ago I started with K-TIG, and so commenced a new chapter in my working career. To say the concept was new to me would be an understatement. From the first phone call from a previous supervisor asking me to check out their website, to now 7 months of working for K-TIG, my perception and my k...

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.
