What fit-up conditions best suit the K-TIG Welding System?

A TIG weld needs an accurate fit-up to ensure a stable keyhole weld.

An accurate fit-up during the material preparation is crucial to maintaining a stable keyhole TIG weld. Seam edges on the material should be machined to ensure straight and consistent edge preparation.  When tacking up the material, care should be taken to ensure the least amount of seam gap and high/low misalignment as possible.
