The TiP TiG welding process improves significantly the weld quality and sharply increases welding speeds by a new method of guiding the preheated and oscillating filler wire into the weld pool to optimize and control the heat input.
The filler wire is continuously fed through a special guide attached to the torch and enables single hand operation.
The preheated filler wire melts faster and substantially increases the deposition rate. The oscillations of the filler wire are transmitted to the Weld Pool and break the surface tension of the molten metal to keep the liquid flowing. This improves side fusion and further increases deposition rates.
Higher deposition rates turn into faster welding speeds and less time for the heat to dissipate into the base material resulting in smaller heat affected zones.
TiP TiG Weld Process:
The TiP TiG welding process is clean and free of fumes. Stress levels on welders are further reduced since the torch can be operated by just one hand and the fact that far less cleaning and grinding is required to complete the task.
• Easy to learn • Less welding time
• Easy to use • Less grinding
• One hand free • Less noise
• No fumes • Less interpass cleaning
• No Spatter • Less welder fatigue
Improved Safety:
Improved Weld Quality:
The TiP TiG welding process has been proven to reliably minimize weld faults and therefore further increase the overall production output.
• Improved homogeny in welding zones • Minimized evaporation of Cr,
• Less oxidation    Ni and other alloys
• Better metal fusion • Best metallurgical properties
• Less material stress • Best mechanical properties
• Less micro / macro porosity • Less dilution
• Improved material values in welding zones • Less inclusions
The TiP TiG welding process allows for unmatched welding speeds. It gives the welder a wide safety margin to accomplish higher production rates while on the same time acquiring the highest possible weld quality.
• Welding speeds typically higher by 300 - 400% over conventional welding
• Manual welding length per minute: 100 - 500mm
• Automation welding length per minute: more than 500mm
• Single process from root to cap
• Increased layer thickness per pass
• Different wall thicknesses in one pass
• Less cleaning considering the low oxidation and the clean welding environment
• Bevel preparation less critical due to better control over energy input
• Lower inert gas consumption
• The use of standard MIG filler wire instead of TIG wire
