How to make welding safer with advanced technology

The causes, and incremental effects, created by multitude of health concerns associated with the welding profession can be invisible, and as such there is a tendency to ignore and minimise the impact these have for the welders on the front line[1]. However as the welding population continues to age,...

Duplex & Super Duplex Welding | Your Questions, Queries & Concerns Answered

Duplex and super duplex belong to a family of stainless steels that are characterised by a combination of easy fabrication, high strength and excellent corrosion resistance. This group of materials is most similar to ferritic and carbon steel, but it has some physical properties in line with those f...

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.
