Manual TiP TiG Welds.

The shortage of skilled welders has been a special concern for the oil, power and defense industries and many global executives are complaining about the shortage of skilled TIG welders. In our highly competitive industry, every manager would like to lower their high TIG - SMAW labor - weld rework costs, and every weld manager should be concerned with weld failure liability consequences.




  • Section 1. When the highest weld quality is required, the regular GTAW (TIG) process has for decades been the process of choice. It's unfortunate for the weld industry that TIG has required the highest welder skills, produced the lowest deposition rates that result in the lowest weld speeds and too often produce welds with excess heat and always results in welds that produce the highest weld labor costs. Welcome to the evolution of the TIG process, it's called TiP TiG...Find out More

  • Section 2. With manual TIG or MIG gauge welds, the weld surface quality, (smooth or irregular) lack of weld continuity - uniformity, distortion and oxidation (cleaning) that typically may require costly grinding and passivation are primary weld cost concerns. With MIG on gauge welds, you typically also may get over sized welds with convex irregular weld surfaces, poor weld tie ins and spatter issues. One way to demonstrate the extraordinary high weld quality and low weld heat benefits with TiP TiG, is to weld the ultra heat sensitive, titanium alloys without using a gas trail shield, or manually weld 14 gauge stainless at a weld travel rate of 48 inch/min as indicated below...Find out More

  • Section 3. Duplex - Stainless - Inconel - Titanium - Low Alloys - Hastelloys - Cu - Brass - Nickel - Stelite - all alloys or regular carbon steels, there is a simple reason why all code quality applications will benefit from 
the TIP TIG process. In contrast to any other weld process, 
TIP TIG consistently enables the highest energy agitated welds producing the highest possible weld quality with the lowest possible weld heat. For those of you that are using regular TIG or pulsed MIG, please note you will not attain the weld quality results that will be attained with the TiP TiG process...Find out More

  • Section 4. There are certain industries and applications that demand the highest weld - part quality. Nuclear Plants and Submarines - Power Plants - Oil Platforms and Refineries - LNG Constructions - Investment Cast Repairs - Defense & Space Applications - the Food - Processing industry and any applications that weld alloys or require code quality welds. There is only one process that will meet all the manual and automated weld demands, and that process is TiP TiG...Find out More
