How has K-TIG been developed? 

Our technology has roots in the Australian government’s technological development sector. Initially developed by the Commonwealth Scientific & Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) and the CRC for Welded Structures, K-TIG took the promising keyhole welding technology and made it viable for a variety of industries.

K-TIG’s keyhole welding process is the culmination of 10 years of intense research. This research developed the physics that underpinned the K-TIG process — a high speed, single pass, full penetration welding technology that reduces the need for wire.

With our innovative keyhole TIG welding technology, customers across a diverse range of industries can now expect:

1

Increased efficiency

2

Lower running costs

3

No compromise on high quality finishes

In other words, K-TIG is a productivity multiplier that delivers higher productivity and increased efficiency to fabricators.

Our History

Early days

K-TIG was born from the idea that everything starts with a great weld. So, K-TIG set out to develop an advanced welding process that could allow businesses of all sizes to re-think their manufacturing processes and increase their productivity and quality.

K-TIG innovated cutting-edge technology from the CSIRO and worked tirelessly to get this technology to industries across the globe.

Expanding horizons

K-TIG is based in Adelaide, South Australia; however, the company isn’t restricted to Australian shores. K-TIG has developed a global network of strategic partners to help manufacturers in the USA, Europe, Asia and elsewhere take advantage of the competitive edge that K-TIG’s industry leading technology offers.

Today… and tomorrow

K-TIG is now thinking beyond the torch. Our culture of continuous improvement has allowed us to work with strategic partners across the globe and integrate our systems with new and existing welding cells. These turnkey packages use the latest technologies related to robotics and automation, as well as sensing and data analytics to help customers achieve the desired quality in their production and finishing operations.
